Media Watch: SFX Mag

I just received the latest issue of SFX Magazine (Feb #61) and behold! I great article about the production!

Lord of the Rings Hobbit Burrows!

As The Lord of the Rings production rolls on into the new millennium, SFX has secured these fine set photographs for your edification and enlightenment.

Behold! Freshly minted pictures from the New Zealand set of Peter Jackson’s film adaptation of The Lord of the Ring. Clearly presented here, and not fuzzily shown on the web (grrr, Xo) it’s quite easy to make out the burrows of Hobbiton, where Bilbo and Frodo Baggins reside. As you can see, the hobbit holes look rather good, fitting well into New Zealand’s lusher than lush landscape. These pictures were taken before the recent catastrophic floods, although it’s understood these sets were those damaged. To raise money for victims of the inundation, Jackson auctioned signed memorabilia from the film. Decent bloke.

While I love the folks at SFX, they do seem to have been mistaken, the Hobbiton sets were in fact quite safe from the flooding, and Peter Jackson auctioned off a signed copy of LOTR, not any film memorabilia. Fuzzy pictures indeed…
