Comprehensive Behind the Scenes of The Hobbit Post Production

I've been a fan of all of the Lord of the Rings movies and am very much looking forward to the release of The Hobbit this December. I always knew that a lot of work went into the film industry beyond the actors and cameras, but after seeing this behind the scenes of the upcoming Hobbit movie, it makes me realize how extensive the work is after all the filming is said and done.

This behind the scenes gives a great look into many different subdivisions of post production and a glimpse of what their day to day's look like. The time and effort put into a project this big is a little overwhelming. Props to the hundreds of people who pull hundreds of hours of work so I can have a good few hours of entertainment.

That is more complex than I ever thought it could be.

Really love what Peter Jackson has done with the BTS stuff for this film - kind of removes all the pretension of Hollywood and makes me feel more invested in the film

this is the real behind the scene, really amazing team work

Always a treat to see these video diaries from Peter!

Awesome 

LoL @ beard guys

This is cool but does anyone else find it ridiculous that the production company has set the deadline so tight that these guys have to spend months sprinting around the clock and for many of them living at the office? I understand they love what they do but a requirement of working at a certain job shouldn't be that your life is consumed by it when release dates are arbitrarily set.
