Apparently Game of Thrones has a large following in the RA universe, therefore will alot some Richard space for the favorites from that cast(expressed in comments below) The only way my fingers will permit it is by throwing in the actor who/whom?(Grammar teacher will get me for that:) betting on 'who', subjective not objective case..I think..Sr Catherine Michael - nicknamed KittyMick - is grumbling in her grave:) I, Musa & others believe would be an unforgettable Stannis Baratheon in GoT2 - Richard Armitage, of course. Would be a dream come true if that development occurs.
Lovely and inspirational new fan video..
Headline Buzz: During the Bush Administration, the majority of the US Media Smeared the same Navy SEAL Team That Killed Bin Laden. They called them Dick Cheney's 'Assassination Ring' http://t.co/5MN8vQL Story demonstrates the ugly truth about about 75% of the US media - they are neither unbiased nor reporting facts. They are in fact today very similar to a state-run media and that will continue as long as there is a Democrat in the White House. Once the Liberal President is replaced by a Republican, most of the media will revert to the rabid attack dog attitude they exhibited during the 8 years of the GW Bush administration.
Getting in the weeds with Director Jackson about filming technology for THE HOBBIT. From his Facebook page:
>The news about us filming The Hobbit at 48 frames per second generated a lot of comments. Of course, it's impossible to show you what 48 fps actually looks like outside of a movie cinema, but there were several interesting and insightful questions raised.
We will be completing a "normal" 24 frames per second version—in both digital and 35mm film prints. If we are able to get the Hobbit projected at 48 fps in selected cinemas, there will still be normal-looking 24 fps versions available in cinemas everywhere.
Converting a film shot at 48 fps down to 24 fps is not a hugely difficult process, but it requires testing to achieve the best results. Some of this involves digital processes during post-production. We are also shooting the film a slightly different way, which is a question several of you asked. Normally you shoot a movie with a 180-degree shutter angle. Changing the shutter angle affects the amount of motion blur captured during movement. Reducing the shutter angle gives you the stroby (or jerky) "Saving Private Ryan" look.
However, we're going the other way, shooting at 48 fps with a 270 degree shutter angle. This gives the 48 fps a lovely silky look, and creates a very pleasing look at 24 fps as well. In fact, our DP, Andrew Lesnie, and I prefer the look of 24 fps when it comes from a 48 fps master.
More soon ....<
