LOTR Stunt Team Say ‘Hi’ to TORN

Lance and some folks who worked on stunts for LOTR (Lance was Sean Bean’s [Boromir] stunt double). They sent us a great pic of the stunt crew during a break from a practice stunt in NZ. Take a look, more pics to come.Hi from Lance and the Lord of the rings Stunt team, we are all New Zealanders born and bread. We all have had a wonderful time working on this incredible trilogy. This is a photo of myself and a few of the other stuntman rehearsing with Bob Anderson (sword master) behind the Copthorn hotel Queenstown, rehearsing for the Amon Hen scene.Looking forward to LOTR. Especially Balin’s Tomb when Boromir Aragorn and the rest of the fellowship go head to head with the troll and the goblins. Some outstanding sword work involved there.As for Helms Deep well what can I say, after about 4 Months total filming, you really did fell like you had been in a real battle, some fantastic stunts there from the boys. High falls, from the top of helms deep wall, 38 foot drop to the mats.I thank god every day for allowing me to be part of this fantastic story. Talk to you soon.

E!Online updates!

The August update is up on E!Online. This month they talk about the complicated processes that turn a rough cut into a finished film, with all its dialogue, sound, music and colour made consistent and synchronised. Part of that process is making the foreign-language dubbed soundtracks so they’ll be consistent with the original too. [More]

Media Watch: Total Film Magazine

From: Gothmog and Missus

The September 2001 issue of Total Film magazine has a short item on FOTR in it’s First Look section. No new info, or pics. Just the amusing/heart attack inducing typo at the head of the text. The release date. Its says 3rd of August. That’s this Friday! Alas the text reiterates the release in Dec as we all know!

If you have scans of this article send it along!

LOTR Extra Speaks?

From: LC

While making my daily rounds on the oldmanmurray.com message boards, I came upon this little item. Fairly interesting, though not groundbreaking stuff. Slight language alert, as is typical at oldmanmurray.com.

They were planning on a turnout of about 9,000. They found out the night before {Tuesday} they were down about 3,000, which meant a 3 hour delay on the start time while they scoured the schools. They arrived at Victoria Uni, both Open and Wellington Polytechs and every high school within an hours drive, in about 30 buses and army trucks and said hop in. [More]
