Spy report from Cannes!
Been missing those spy reports? Here’s one that just brings back the old days, from an anonymous person.
“I saw the LOTR Cannes clip at [somewhere]
I have signed the NDA, and don’t feel like selling Peter Jackson my soul, but I thought you might like to know the following:
Although not completely finished, the CGI is INCREDIBLE
The crowd of workshop people went WILD at seeing the finished product
The actors won’t have seen any of this – they will be blown away by the “finished” product
The scaling between shorts (hobbits, dwarves) and talls (humans, elves) is seamless and completely believable”
Drool. Two hundred and something days to go.Posted in Old Spy Reports on May 9, 2001 by Tehanu
