Super super excited for this :-)

looking forward to seeing this.. its a pretty big deal that a guy like peter jackson is moving away from film and going all digital

All they really needed was stand-ins, not real actors, a few $30 reflectors and a bit of photoshop and possibly after effects. Why break the bank when you don't have to?

ewww, it looks like a foot, or an arm.. icky. haha

OMG I can't breath I'm so excited.

Two Epic M's.
Though, the monitor was displaying a non-epic HUD, anyone have any idea what they used? And there appeared to be far more wires running around the camera rig for what should be hooked up.
Though what can I say, I've never shot a 3D feature with two Epics.

@David_Keller: It's not really moving away from film when it's simply a stop difference in latitude, 5K, and less grain than many film stocks.
