why did they hire
a human actor
youre right they should have hired a dragon
No you tit the point is a dragon and a human have like zero overlap as far as ANATOMY is concerned.
The animators aren’t really gaining much from a human mimicking something non-human. I can understand motion-capturing the face, but the entire body? The animators aren’t going to really be able to use that much footage well?
The best route would have been to study lizard-like creatures and animate THOSE. Not a mammal.
THANK YOU for that explanation omg I thought I was gonna have to slap someone. There was really no point to mocapping the whole body, none at all, but it’s gonna give me a thing to laugh about for the rest of my life.
No seriously I wish I could’ve seen the animators’ faces when they were handed the footage like “yes thank you this is very useful. humans totally move like reptillian creatures yes excellent reference.”
What I’m getting is that all the women in Middle Earth ran off and set up their own civilization somewhere….
“His magic ring he kept a great secret, for he chiefly used it when unpleasant callers came.”
owns arguably the most valuable and powerful artifact in middle earth
uses it to avoid uncomfortable social interactions
this is why Bilbo is my hero
from what i’ve seen, this is how i imagine the hobbit movie will be like when i watch it
just got back from seeing it. this is a pretty decent summation.
gotta wait til next weekend to see it with my mom. but reading through some of these reviews of it i’m just laughing really hard because i know they’re trying to say bad things about it, but it’s just making it sound perfectly true to the book:
- "Nearly three hours, and the story has progressed only slightly."
- "To its own narrative detriment, "The Hobbit" works hard to lay the framework for what will follow."
- "Not all the scenes are necessary […] But it’s an enjoyable experience."
lol have they even read the book because that is exactly how i remember it beginning.
