Update From Middle-earth: Part 2 Of Peter Jackson's Set Videos!! Plus Another Dwarven Photo

First of all, have another look at some more dwarves from THE HOBBIT! Thursday we showed you Ori, Nori and Dori; this time around we have Oin (played by John Callen) and Gloin (Peter Hambleton).

These guys are distant cousins of Thorin Oakenshield, and the two doughty Northern Dwarves join the Company out of a sense of loyalty to their kin, and also because they have a substantial sum of money invested in the venture.

Along with Bombur, Gloin is the only other married Dwarf in the Company (there being a shortage of female dwarves in general). His wife is an acclaimed beauty with a particularly fine beard. Gloin is the proud father of a young son, Gimli, who will go on to become part of the famous Fellowship of the Ring.

Man, I love these character photos! More, MORE!!

And now, the production video! I have to say, Peter Jackson gets it. This is what we are all craving and he is providing it! The need to fill the information gaps with info from spies drops considerably when you have the director himself take time for Middle-earth fans like this. Kudos Peter!!

I like seeing the additional work that Andy Serkis has taken on too. Obviously he is a talented and driven creative genius so for Jackson to help him achieve more is good on him.

Which brings me to Middle-earth. New Zealand. Gorgeous isn't it? I have to get down to Kiwi soon to see some of these locations first hand! Nice to have double tentpole budget to fly around 5 helicopters for location scouting isn't it? Well, they need it. And it will all pay off.

So have a look:

Keep up the great work Peter and company!
The whole world is waiting on your creations. No pressure though. Ok, yeah there is some pressure - but these videos are obviously good for you and your team to let off some steam. Looking forward to the next set video update from Middle-earth!!
