See how Weta Digital animated Bombur’s bouncing barrel
Courtesy of those talented folks at Weta Digital, we’re delighted to bring you this fantastic behind-the-scenes video of Bombur’s bouncing barrel.
Weta Digital presents a peek inside the world of the animation team as they work out how to solve one of the most complicated shots in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. As part of an epic seven-minute action sequence, Bombur’s bouncing barrel shot required an elaborate approach.
See how our animators suited up and used their own performances as part of the animation process.
