10 Minutes Sneak Peak
Peter Jackson and Warner Brothers released a 10 minute sneak peak of the upcoming “The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey” film which is due to be released in December of this year. With the 10 minute sneak preview, Jackson implored theaters to show The Hobbit in its native filmed 48 frames per second (fps) format that it has been shot in. Jackson says that by doing so, pictures will be more dynamic and have a much more “real look” than that of the industry standard of 24 fps. James Cameron, director of Avatar, is another proponent of increasing the frame rate, claiming he will be shooting the sequel to Avatar in 60 fps.<br /><br />Those that were lucky enough to see the 10 minute preview expressed mixed reviews. There were many that said the opening aerial footage of the landscape showed beautifully dynamic in the format. Others said that the indoor scenes felt like a “made for TV” movie feel. Either way, people have associated the motion blur of 23 fps with cinema. Although, this change may take time for people to adjust to, in the end, I believe this format will make movies much more beautiful and cinematic.
