    That makes two of us. The first meeting between Estel and Undomiel? *utterly squeelicious swoon* PJ just has to release that scene... [face_love]

    Cheers,

    I love how Aragorn is trying to be all suave and "hey, baby, d'you know I'm the heir of Isildur?" and Arwen is like "lol, d'you know I'm your great-great-times-20-something-aunt?" :p

    Has anyone else heard the soundtrack yet? Empire magazine hosted the entire thing for a little while as a promotional stunt and since then it's been all over the internet.

    My respect and appreciation for the musicians that record the soundtrack shot up astronomically when I learned they actually play without rehearsal. [face_hypnotized] ^:)^

    The mind boggles, indeed. I understand they might not be able to rehearse at home (for confidentiality reasons and so on), but the fact that they didn't even rehearse in cubicles at Abbey Road beforehand is just... Sweet Elbereth! The talent in that room is truly astounding!

    Cheers,

    I would imagine that they at least go over each piece at least once before recording, but even that would be hugely impressive.

    EDIT: And the first film is done! :D

    I imagine there will be time factored into the session to record pieces more than once, but that will probably be to try the occasional variation or correct something that - ultimately - doesn't sound quite right on the day. Or if someone has a brilliant last minute idea. On the whole it won't be to account for mistakes made by the musicians. Awesome achievement. It would be interesting to know how much time they have in the studio versus the amount of music they have to record.

    You know what? They could sell tickets for the recording of some film music (this included) and people would come. Me, for one.

    I'm not sure if that's a good idea - unless the audience was shut in a soundproof room, there would always be the risk of someone accidentally spoiling the recording with an unwanted sound.

    It's fanciful, of course. The audience would need to be shut away. Abbey Road couldn't ever do it, but the shiny new recording studios of the future... one can dream. :p

    Another bit of awesome about the music: when doing post-prod on ROTK, it went on at such a blistering pace that Howard Shore had to compose about seven minutes of soundtrack each day. Considering the already impressive final result, I'm just bewildered when I think how much better it could have been if he'd had only a little more time...

    Count me in as well. Oh! To be a fly on the wall and see genius at work!

    Cheers,

    Also, regarding that latest videoblog, it would seem that Martin Freeman got to play old Bilbo, too - in that shot from the first teaser trailer, when Frodo waves at him as he's leaving Bag End. Because we know that Ian Holm didn't go to New Zealand, he shot all his scenes in England.

    It could be blue screen or a studio set.

    You can see in the videoblog at 7:53 that it was filmed in Matamata. So no Ian Holm (granted, it could be a different stand-in, I'm only assuming it would be Martin Freeman).

    The guy in that shot clearly isn't Ian Holm... but that doesn't mean it's Martin Freeman either.

    Yes, because PJ mentioned it in a videoblog ages ago. :p

    Yeah, the interesting thing about the cast of the Hobbit is... I wouldn't recognize that majority of them if I saw them.

    Don't stress, they probably wouldn't recognise you either.
