Must See: Peter Jackson's HOBBIT Production Blog Video #7

Of utmost concern to me is the lackadaisical security at Stone Street Stages! Watch as Peter Jackson drives straight on through the main security gate with a passing wave to the attendant - not even having the need to present credentials. :-)

If there is one director who has clued into what fans want during the long production schedules of tent pole films, especially if they are being shot back to back, is Peter Jackson. His efforts with these blogs allow for fans to see what it's like to be shooting these films and relieves pressure from internal sources to reveal "spy shots" to movie sites like this one. While I enjoy seeing things that others do not get a chance to see and in some instances sharing it with you if appropriate, I must say I truly enjoy seeing the behind the scenes action. The beauty of it is that there are next to no spoilers presented!

Here's the storyline for THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY:
“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” follows title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever… Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.  

So sit back, perhaps enjoy breakfast or second breakfast first, then watch the latest installment from Peter Jackson and his team in New Zealand!
