2019.10.18 19:11 Chen_Geller "Editing is the final rewrite" or Is The Hobbit actually better as a trilogy than as a duology?

While working on his lauded documentary debout, They Shall Not Grow Old, producer and director Sir Peter Jackson said he enjoyed having to make a film which required no shooting, being that it was reconstructed World War I photography.
While this comment may seem lazy, its in fact one which many great filmmakers adhered to: Sir Alfred Hitchcock hated shooting, and Sir David Lean "couldn't wait" to get to the cutting room. Jonathan Demme was famous for crafting his films more in the editing room than in principal photography, as is Coppola.
Jackson's previous film, The Hobbit, was infamously split from two films to three. Two main accusations were flung at this choice by the films' detractors: that it was a studio cashgrab, and that it resulted in extraneous material, including a love interst subplot, expanded parts for some of the side-characters, an additional villain, etcetra. The latter argument is especially interesting, because it posits that the material captured in the original filming was at least servicable, whereas additional material recorded in "reshoots" meant to create a trilogy supposedly dragged the films down.
What's more interesting, however, is how poorly both arguments fare when tested against the director's own words on the matter. You see, according to Peter, editor Jabez Olssen was creating an assembly on-set while they were shooting the two films. In one the breaks from filming, Jackson and his co-writers Philippa Boyens and Dame Frances Walsh felt that...
You know what, this doesn't feel quite right as two movies": it didn't structurally even feel quite right, where one finished and the other began, and so we started to - this is Fran [Walsh] and Philippa [Boyens] and myself[...]the three of us just privately started to knock the idea around [...] that maybe we are dealing with three films here, not two. And it wasn't until just before the end of the filming that we had Warner Brothers [executives] came down to New Zealand to visit and we, at that point, we had worked out enough of a structure that we could pitch them, to say: "listen, if we were to make three movies, this is how the first one would finish and the second one would begin." We sort of worked out a structure of how we would shape the whole thing, which was at that stage almost completely shot. [...Warner's] were shocked. You know, they couldn't quite believe what they were hearing. 1
So, not only was the decision to split the piece into three not a studio decision but it also wasn't a creation by means of extensive reshoots, but rather editorially. This would also seem to suggest that a third argument against these films - stating the production was rushed to the point of lacking any planning - is also false.
So, what was it that didn't structurally feel right about the duology? Was the production on the films really so lacking in foresight, or not? Was the two-film version actually going to be any better? Lets find out together.
In the early days of sketching the films with co-writer and initial director Guillermo Del Toro, the filmmakers considered several places in which to split the films. At one point, film one was going end with the arrival at Erebor. 2 At another, they considered doing a bridge film leading into The Lord of the Rings. However, the finished script of both Del Toro's and Jackson's had the Quest itself split across two movies: An Unexpected Journey and There and Back Again, split at the moment where Bard first contacts the Company.
The Hobbit was shot in three main steps: Principal photography, which was divided into three "blocks", and began in 21 March 2011 and ended on the 6 July 2012, after 266 days of filming. Andy Serkis was directing a secondary unit and Christin Rivers occasionally directed a third "splinter" unit. CGI-based footage was being created around the clock during production and post-production.
As with any Peter Jackson film, post-production was planned in such a way so as to allow for pickup photography for main unit and splinter unit, meant to help polish the edits. A few days were scheduled later in July 2012 for the first film, and six weeks starting with May 20, 2013, for the second film. When the decision was made to extend the piece to three films, the 2013 pickups were lengthened by two more weeks.

An Unexpected Journey

An Unexpected Journey was always intended (even in Del Toro's time) to open with a framing device featuring old Bilbo Baggins (Sir Ian Holm) and Frodo (Elijah Wood), and the footage was shot in July 2012. 3 The contents of the Erebor prologue were also largely determined ahead of time. Some of the actual shooting of the prologue, though, took place within the last couple of days of principal photography. 4 By contrast, the Bag End scenes that follow were shot early in principal photography, and marked the first appearance of the Dwarves on-set.
Azog was in the film from the get-go. Originally, the Battle of Moria was going to be briefly glimpsed at the tail end of the prologue. Balin would then offer cryptic hints about the battle, which would have served to explain Thror's fate but not really establish that Azog was still alive. Azog would only appear when he attacks the compan, and then the full backstory would have been revealed in Beorn's House, just before we learn that Azog is in league with The Necromancer. 5
Radagast and Dol Guldur were also always present, down to the Morgul Blade, its role in the White Council and the High Fells.6 In the duology, Gandalf would have gone to the High Fells after he parts with Galadriel. The storm clouds he sees when he's talking to Radagast are meant to be the ones that hinder the company at the High Pass, and then he'd regroup with them for Goblin-town and go with them to Beorn's before leaving directly for Dol Guldur. 7
Trollshaws, the Warg Chase, Rivendell and the Stone Giants were all shot in principal photography for the two-film version. Two notable additions were Bilbo hanging on the side of the High Pass, requiring a rescue by Thorin, which was shot in the 2012 pickups, and a scene that echoes it later when Bilbo tries to leave and is confronted by Bofur.8
After Goblintown and the confrotation with Gollum, Azog would attack. This scene was also differnt, but only in that - once Azog knocked Thorin down - the Eagles would have swooped in immdiately to save him and the company. The added footage was shot in principal photography. Since Bilbo saving Thorin was added, they didn't originally have a major reconciliation on the Carrock, but footage was shot of Thorin warming somewhat up to Bilbo based on his candor before Azog's attack. 9
This is where things get interesting. Jackson estimates that the carrock was going to be about "two-third of the way" into the first film. The film would have continued through the Wilderland, Beorn's House (including the Dwarves being introduced to Beorn in pairs), Mirkwood, the Spiders and the Woodland Realm. Tauriel was present in this version, as was Legolas. At one point, the confrontation with Thranduil was going to be different, AND few inserts of dialogue were added before the entry to Mirkwood, but otherwise this section existed very much as it does in The Desolation of Smaug.10
The climax of the film was intended to intercut Gandalf's exploration of Dol Guldur with the Barrel sequence. Gandalf would have found Thrain and conversed with him briefly, but instead of fleeing with Gandalf from Azog and being killed by The Necromancer, Bolg would have killed him just prior. 11
The Barrel sequence was to be the action climax of the film. At one point, the sluice gate was going to be at the end of the sequence, so that Kili scoring a poisonous wound would act to highten the stakes, but it was rearranged "quite early on." Originally, Azog would have appeared instead of Bolg. Kili's wound and Gandalf's incarceration would act as loose threads for the next film. 12
Thorin would have reconcilled with Bilbo based on his ingenuity to use the Barrels, and then Bard's silhuette would have appeared over the company, as a cliffhanger. Somewhere in this sequence, the filmmakers were considering to put the montage in which the Thrush reaches Erebor and we cut into the mountain where Smaug awakes. 13

There and Back Again

The second film was intended to begin in medias res with Bard taking the Dwarves across the lake. Tauriel, Legolas and Thranduil interrogating Narzug was meant to recapitulate the Tauriel-Kili subplot. Laketown would have occupied the film's first act, and included all the scenes that feature in the film: the covering of the Dwarves in fish, confrontation with Braga, the Dwarves coming out of Bard's toilet, the Master eating bollocks.14
Thorin was going to leave Kili behind with Fili, Bofur and Oin, while Tauriel would track the Orcs to Bard's House, joined by Legolas. Bard would have gone to place the Black Arrow to the bow, but arrested by Braga, although the sequence was shorter in the two-film cut, as more footage of it was shot in the 2013 pickups.15
Bilbo's conversation with Smaug - in which it was established that Smaug was in league with Sauron - was originally shorter and ended with Smaug becoming enraged and leaving the mountain, trying to kill the Dwarves on the mountainside. Smaug then left for Laketown. 16 The scenes with Thorin outside deliberating what he was going to do were done in the 2013 pickups, as was the confrontation between the company and Smaug.17
The conflageration of Laketown would follow. The sequence, including the death of the Master, Bard escaping capture and Bain retrieving the Black Arrow, which was fired off of his shoulder, was shot in principal photography, as well. This was to be intercut with Sauron appearing to Gandalf, looking for the other Elven Rings just as Galadriel arrives to rescue him. The Battle of Dol Guldur ensues, very much as it does in the film. 18
At one point, Gandalf would then - after taking a horse and staff from Radagast - pursue the spirit of The Necromancer East and North, where he would see the second army, that of Gundabad, assemble and then run back to warn the company at Erebor. Instead, in the finished film, Legolas discovers that Bolg hails from Gundabad and takes Tauriel there to discover this, which was shot in the 2013 pickups.19
This happens not before Tauriel and Kili confess their feelings on the Lakeshore. At one point, they were going to kiss in this scene, but at Lilly's advice it was decided to postpone that moment until after Kili's demise.20
Thorin's dragon sickness and the tilting towards war were set to be explored in much the same way that they are in the finished film. Many of the scenes with him negotiating with Bard and later with Thranduil were shot quite early on. Gandalf would arrive at this point, and explain the strategic signifcance of Sauron capturing the mountain. 21
Eventually, Thorin was to snap out of the dragon sickness after a brief confrontation with Dwalin. The original idea was that he would look at a golden cup and see his reflection morph into that of the dragon. This was later replaced with him wandering through the gold and sinking into the coin mounds. However, while working on the third film, Peter Jackson decided to use the aftermath of the confrontation with Smaug, which was added to the end of the Second film, to devise a new way to use this footage in which Thorin sees the Dragon appear in the gold beneath him and imagines sinking in the gold. The scene of a recovered Thorin approaching his comrades and rallying them to a last charge was however shot in principal photography, albeit near the very end. 22
The tactics of the Battle of the Five Armies weren't figured out during principal photography and the script of those scenes wasn't good enough in Peter Jackson's mind. Some elements including fighting in the streets of Dale and the scenes involving Dain were shot in principal photography, but the rest was pushed to the 2013 pickups, and its this material which constituted the bulk of the pickup footage. 23
This included Tauriel's confrontation with Thranduil and her leaving for Ravenhill with Legolas, much of the action in the fields and almost all of the footage on Ravenhill, namely Thorin's climactic fight with Azog, shot on the very last day. New additions to the script included the chariot sequence and Legolas fight with Bolg. Thorin's funeral and Bilbo's return to The Shire were filmed in principal photography.24

Del Toro and Deleted scenes

Even though we can now see that the films were largely an editorial creation, that does not mean that they were some rough cut divided into three. There are a lot of deleted scenes in these films, including Tauriel healing one of Bard's daughters on the Lakeshore, more material partaining to Legolas mother, added material in the prologue, more Dol Guldur material (including Gandalf finding a Palantir) and more footage of Beorn.
People who hope that Del Toro would have better honoured the novel's overall whimsy may have been disappointed: Del Toro is after all known for his dark fantasy films. rather than for lighthearted adventures. Plus, his film was still being written by Jackson, Walsh and Boyens. In fact, Del Toro was one of the champions of the idea of introducing a new female character, insisting that she'd be a warrior. Mirkwood and Laketown are said be heavily based on Del Toro's vision. 25 Some speculate that The Hobbit wasn't much of a passion of Jackson's, although the time and care he took, not to mention his own statements, run to the contrary. If anything, Del Toro seemed much less enthused back in his day.26
Lindsay Ellis' interview with actor John Callen seems to indicate that the studio pushed Jackson to put more emphasis on the romance in the third film than was originally planned by the filmmakers. However, that seems contradictory to the content of the movie. If anything, Tauriel's screentime is minimized, with her whisked away by Legolas to Gundabad only to arrive back at the battlefield very late.27

Assesment

We can now see that the films were created editorially from material shot for the two-film version, rather than as a result of extensive, studio-driven reshoots. Most of the scenes were scripted ahead of time and shot for the two-film version, but proved too unwieldly in that cut, commissioning a trilogy cut.
The filmmakers also seemed to have had an understanding of the tone, style and volume of each of the three films before they started constructing them individually. 28 Tonally, film one was always intended to be more light-hearted, but never quite as much as the book. Film two would start light, but by the time the first act would be over and Thorin would leave Laketown with Kili behind, it would have become a much grimer story, with more focus on Thorin and his corruption and eventual self-sacrifice. This shift is maintained in the trilogy, where it acts like the midpoint of a 1960s epic.29
In looking specifically at where the original An Unexpected Journey was supposed to end, one can really understand Sir Peter Jackson's structural issues with it. While the barrel sequence could make a good action climax, the idea of a cliffhanger involving Bard's silhouette is not very enticing. If we compare this to the cliffhanger that's actually present in The Desolation of Smaug, that cliffhanger was the result of the characters actions, whereas in the script to the two-film version, the cliffhanger is added unto the climax, with little setup for Bard's character. The opening of the second film, too, seems not to be very interesting. Insofar as audiences otherwise uninformed of the original structure probably wouldn't be able make it out in watching the finished article, Jackson's work suceeds as an exercise in editing.
Some specific ideas present in the two-film cut seem by far inferior to what's in the three-film cut. Previz for Bilbo's fight with the spiders looks far less enganging than the fight involving the Dwarves in the film. The absence of the scene with Bofur in An Unexpected Journey - one of the most heartfelt moments of the movie - is shocking, and Thorin snapping out of his dragon sickness is much better told in The Battle of the Five Armies than it was going to be in There and Back Again.
While the execution is dodgy at-times, the lack of a confrontation between the company and the dragon (perhaps the most significant addition to the trilogy) in the two-film version is positivelly maddening. While there's no intentional build-up to it in the first film, the promise of the heroes facing off the dragon is inherent to the story. Its inclusion - and especially its failure - are crucial.
Furthermore, given the amount of material which they were trying to squeeze into the two film version, it would have made for even longer and more oddly-paced films. Probably close to Jackson's King Kong (by far the director's most glacial film) where the theatrical cut was three hours. Surely, some of the subplots which aren't known for their popularity such as Tauriel or Dol Guldur would probably have been cut shorter in the edit, but instead of removing their offending nature, it would have just made them appear all the more haphazard and undercooked, not unlike the stories of the crew-members of the Venture on King Kong.
The claims that the trilogy was without preplanning, too, are false. While it was more rushed than The Lord of the Rings, most of the trilogy's scenes down to individual beats and lines were scripted in advance. Many scenes which appear in The Battle of the Five Armies, which came out in 2014, were already shot in early 2011. Even some of the scenes that ended up being shot in pickups were at least conceptualized by the filmmakers during the shoot, and almost all of the material shot or rendered during the pickups was already scripted and at least in-part previsualized by the time the filmmakers completed the extended edition of the first film.
Those elements which were not planned sufficiently ahead had mostly to do with the third film, and it was therefore all the more beneficial that the split to three films occured, as it allowed Jackson a whole added year to grapple with those sequences. The Lord of the Rings, its important to note, also had additional sequences after the fact: the original Ent attack on Isengard, for instance, was far less prominent than in the final film.
In fact, if there was a film of trilogy that exhibits the most haphazard editing, it is not the third but rather the first, An Unexpected Journey. This is appearant not just in the longest and most glacial of the three edits, but also in some last-minute changes to the soundtrack, tellingly relying much more heavily on pre-existing music than the other two entries (given that there was no time to record new pieces).

Conclusion

All in all, given the evidence, it is my view that the decision to move from two films to three, given the circumstances, was the right one. Even if you dislike the trilogy, the evidence does at least seem to suggest that a duology wouldn't have been any better. At any length, it is a primary lesson of the role of editing in a film: its not just cutting what you shot, its finding new things to do with what you shot, which is perhaps the most purely cinematic exercise in filmmaking.

1 https://youtu.be/9XDsSr3sGSI?t=670. Jackson also said this in the commentary to the first film: "before we ever spoke to the studio, Phil[ippa], Fran and I sat down and restructured the story so that we knew in our mind that we would know how to make three standalone films," and repeated his account in another interview.
2 So according to the commentary of the second film.
3 According to the commentary: "We always were developing this idea of having the Bilbo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings period be the way that we enter the story." Del Toro, too, was enthusiastic.
4 Specifically, the shots of Thorin rallying the Dwarves of Erebor against Smaug at the gates were done in the tenth to last day of shooting. This would mean that by the time they had Thorin facing Smaug for the prologue, they already conceptualized their eventual confrontation. As part of the prologue, Jackson and his co-writers did consider additional pieces like showing the Dwarves becoming lowly toy-makers but "none of that was ever photographed", according to the commentary. Another concept was the Bree scene, eventually shot at the beginning of the 2013 pickups.
5 According to an earlier draft, Bilbo would explain that "Thror led his people to Moria, seeking to reclaim the ancient kingdom of Khazad Dum...but his enemies had got there first" while a brief montage of the fighting is shown. Jackson says in the commentary that they shot a "a much simpler version" of the scene in the Lonelands where Balin flashes back to the battle, intending to reveal the full backstory "in Beorn's House, which is quite a way into the story." They then reshot it in the 2012 pickups so that Balin revealed the entirety of the backstory in one fell swoop. Traces of Azog's backstory remain in the scenes in Beorn's House, as Beorn reflects upon his own grievances with the Orc. Of course, this comes shortly after Azog attacks Thorin on the slopes of the Misty Mountains. Originally, that was going to be the moment where Azog is revealed to be alive: "The audience realizes he's alive the moment Thorin realizes he's alive", Philippa Boyens says in the commentary. This meant that two short scenes featuring Azog, one in Weathertop and one on the trail of the Dwarves leading up to the High Pass, were done in at the end of principal photography.
6 According to Philippa Boyens on the commentary: "We got into this really early on. I don't know if you remember, Pete[...it was] in LA, I think, we were doing our very first script meeting with Guillermo and we were talking about Dol Guldur, knowing that we wanted to go there."
7 The High Fells sequence existed in the cut of the first film long enough for Howard Shore to actually score it for An Unexpected Journey. It is unclear whether the scene originally ended with Gandalf stating decisively that Sauron has returned, but it was meant to at least be implicit.
8 According to the commentary, "The Stone Giant [which Bilbo and half the company were hanging off of] was in the scene and basically they were now going to go straight into the cave and take shelter, but then we created this scene with Bilbo in jeopardy[...]in pickups.[...]We did a sort of pair [of scenes] it was the hanging off the cliff and then this one is the next beat in the story." However, the final confrontation with Thorin after Goblintown, which those scenes are meant to help set-up, was part of principal photography.
9 According to Jackson's commentary "it was the second time we shot the Carrock. We had filmed this sequence a few months earlier, but with the changes we made [...] we actually reshot this scene on our last day[...] just to really climax the story, the friendship between the two."
10 Jackson says this in the commentary to the first film. Behind the scenes footage dates the first filming of Thranduil's interrogation of Thorin to 7 September 2011.
11 So according to a call sheet dated 4 of June 2011: "Gandalf tries to lead Thrain out. Azog kills Thrain. Sauron appears and attacks Gandalf." The Orc referred to as Azog in the Dol Guldur sequences was actually Bolg, but ended up as a third, Orc called the Dungeon Keeper. Footage of Thrain leaping unto Gandalf actually appeared in the film's announcement trailer. Thrain's part was recast in pickups, but remains a rather minor addition.
12 According to Christian Rivers at the Behind the Scenes features of the Barrel Scene: "the sluice gate that used to be sort-of at the end of the chase is now quite early on." Footage of Legolas balancing over Dwarf heads was shot in June 1st, 2012.
13 According to Boyens on the commentary to An Unexpected Journey, the montage to Erebor and the dragon's eye was "one of the first things I ever wrote" for the films. In the commentary to the Desolation of Smaug, Jackson discloses the last shot of the first film. The investigation of Narzug is listed as scene 224.
14 ibid. Specifically, according to call-sheets shown in behind-the-scenes footage for the second film, the Dwarves being covered in fish was shot on 6 March 2012. A draft of the script dated 22/08/2011 describes the Master eating testicles, which was shot on August 18. The Dwarves coming out of Bard's toilet was shot by Andy Serkis, who was only present on the Second Unit during Principal Photography. Even the little scene in which Alfrid informs the Master of the prophecy exists far enough back in the writing process to actually be used as the lines for the audition to the role of Alfrid. Tellingly enough, Peter Jackson tells Stephen Fry that they didn't run the rewrite involving the bollocks with the studio before shooting it, which (along with other evidence) would seem to go against the notion that the studio had a hand in creative decisions on these films.
15 The date on the slateboard for the scene of the fight in Bard's House is April 17th, 2012, with both Tauriel and Legolas clearly in the shot. The scene of Tauriel healing Kili was the first thing Evangeline Lilly ever shot for the films. While Legolas was always supposed to go off chasing Orcs, the bulk of his hunting of the Orcs was shot in pickups, as was his fight with Bolg.
16 https://youtu.be/YY07JsxhNTo?t=340 The scenes for the pickups were concieved during block 3 of principal photography. Scripting and previz work began after the first film's release in December 2012. According to an interview with Jackson, most of the material shot in pickups relates to the third film rather than the second, which seems true as the only sequences to be shot entirely in pickups for film two were Legolas' fight with Bolg, the Battle of the Forges and the Bree flashback. Inherent to the nature of pickups was doing certain scenes or shots over when the first attempt didn't sit well in the edit, or was botched. For instance, part of the Dwarves first encounter with Bard was reshot due to rain issues during the original shoot.
17 Smaug's basic design was decided upon in early 2012, but was not yet camera-ready during the first film. In February 2013, Jackson started working on Smaug, asking to remove two of his legs. At one point, he considered having Smaug speak psychically to Bilbo, but an animation study that showed the dragon convincingly lip-synced made him reconsider making the dragon speak. Conceptually, "Jackson always felt the book lacked that necessary collision between Thorin and his old foe." Ian Nathan, Anything you Can Imagine: Peter Jackson and the Making of Middle Earth, pp. 878
At this point, Jackson started a series of think-tank meetings intended to plot-out and previsualize the confrontation with Smaug. Philippa Boyens suggested using the forges to fight fire with fire, and Alan Lee suggested using molten gold to submerge the dragon. John Howe said the sequence took shape in "I guess about a month." The live action elements were shot in day 38 of the pickups, cocurrent with Cumberbatch recording the additional lines required for these scenes. According to Christian Rivers in the Book Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon, p. 90 "the bare bones of what made it into the film is essentially what we came up with months and months earlier." Actual rendering on Smaug's scenes took place at the very end of post-production, and even some of the earlier scenes in the treasure hoard were not finalized until late October and early November 2013.
18 Call-sheets trace the shooting of the White Council in Dol Guldur to 26 May 2011 (Galadriel banishes Sauron) and 30 May (Sauron interrogates Gandalf and the Dungeon master intends to cut off his ring finger as Galadriel shows up). A lot of the concepts for the CG aspect of the battle were already in store when Jackson directed those scenes.
19 According to Daniel Falconer, Middle Earth: From Script to Screen, p. 445: "A scene appeared in earlier versions of the script, in which Gandalf would pursue The Necromancer from Dol Guldur, following the shadowy figure east until he disappeared, a vast army of Orcs was amassing near the Sea of Rhun." The idea that Gandalf goes east actually survived in a brief shot in the third film where Gandalf can be seen riding through a barren landscape. "Later rewrites shifted the location of this revelation to the Weathered Heath", which is en route from Gundabad. The proper appearance of Gundabad itself was not in the script until the 2013 pickups, where Legolas takes Tauriel there. However, the idea that Legolas mother was killed there was present in the scripts from the very beginning. The White Gems intended to set-up Legolas mother appear in the extended cut of the first film, and indeed a statue of hers was used in the set of Mirwood, originally shot in Principal photography. https://youtu.be/LpSRZuqN7Oo?t=607
20 A draft of the screenplay dated 27/11/2011 has Kili and Tauriel kiss in this scene. All the footage on the Lakeshore (with the exception of Legolas telling Tauriel about Bolg, which was an insert) was shot in November and December 2011, during the on-location portion of principal photography. This includes Alfrid's footage.
21 According to Lee Pace, the horse used on-set to ride, was used for the very first time in the scene in which Thranduil rides up to Thorin's rampant. This places that scene earlier in the shoot than the scene in which Thranduil comes astride that Elk to Erebor in the prologue to the first film. A script draft of Gandalf in Thranduil's war tent explaining how the capture of Erebor by Azog in Sauron's name would result in the re-instating of the Kingdom of Angmar. Call-sheets glimpsed in passing during the behind-the-scenes footage on the Barrel sequence, show that scenes such as the Dwarves crushing the bridge into Erebor in preparation for an Elvish siege, Bilbo leaving Erebor (with Bofur's silent help) and war preparations in Dale were shot in day 250 of principal photography.
22 A callsheet glimpsed during behind-the-scenes footage on the barrel sequence dates Thorin rallying the Dwarves to day 251 of the shoot. Originally, they were going to be dressed in elaborate royal armour, but it was so bulky that a decision was made on the set to rid the actors of it. https://youtu.be/nfZCc4-rnWY?t=962 Another prefigured element in this section of the film includes the idea that the Iron-hill Dwarves would ride rams. A ram motif cropped up in the original design for Thorin's regal armour, and images of rams decorate Dain's lineage on the tapestry which Bard finds in the second film. Philippa Boyens, in the audio commentary, also claims that the idea of using the Wereworms existed "from very early on."
23 Its these scenes that Jackson didn't have the ample time to prepare for during the shoot. This would go on to be misquoted by the films' detractors as if to postulate that the storyline on all three films was being improvised, where in fact it wasn't. Jackson had a difficulty specifically with the Battle of the Five Armies, and specifically during principal photography. Therefore, it was decided to postpone dealing with those sequences until pickups. The Ravenhill skirmish and the battle in the streets of Dale were all shot during pickups, while the battle in the open field - which was heavily reliant on CGI - was extentsivelly previsualized at this period - and rendered during post-production on the third film.
24 Tauriel's infatuation with Kili was always intended to end in tragedy. The way in which this came about, and the notion that it would be Bolg who would bring this about, was however concieved in the think-tank meetings leading up to pickups. Ravenhill was always going to feature in the battle, but in earlier drafts (glimpsed here) it was the Elven army that was stationed there.
25 https://www.gamesradar.com/guillermo-del-toro-championed-the-creation-of-she-elf-tauriel-in-the-hobbit-the-desolation-of-smaug/. The films have a "GDL DNA", Jackson told Nathan (p. 833). By comparison, Stephen Sinclair co-wrote the two-script version of The Lord of the Rings, and only maintains a writing credit on The Two Towers. Del Toro is credited on all three Hobbit scripts, suggesting a major influence on the screenplay. The use of magic is probably one, as Jackson doesn't like magic in fantasy films."
26 According to Nathan (p. 334), Del Toro "missed Los Angeles[...and] admitted he had worried about the physical demands of shooting in remote locations." According to an interview, Del Toro doesn't "like little guys and dragons, hairy feet, Hobbits.... I don't like sword and sorcery." While no one interfered with Del Toro's vision (he left because of scheduling), there were doubts about his designs, especially that of Smaug (ibid, p. 834), which indeed seems far inferior to the design chosen by Jackson. Other design ideas that lack the naturalistic feel of the series are a helmet for Thorin that featured horns, a steampunk Erebor and painted skies. Del Toro's casting ideas, such as Doug Jones for Thranduil and Ron Perlman for Beorn or Smaug also seem widely out-of-place. Second-Unit Director Andy Serkis said: "I love Guillermo[...]But to redesign it in such a way that made you feel that there was no continuity? The audience would probably have felt cheated." (Nathan, ibid.)
27 Lily recalls, in watching the third film, that she missed a lot of material which was shot with her character. Jackson is known for listening to audience feedback. For instance, the scene where the company narrowly avoids Smaug and his underside is seen covered in coins, is based on fan-mail, and Legolas' Mumakil stunt in The Return of the King was done after audiences liked his previous stunts. Therefore, it seems likely that Jackson had learned that the public deemed Tauriel and Kili's romance cheesy, and dialed it back slightly.
The idea that a "love triangle" with Legolas was established after the fact stems from Lily misremembering. In an interview with Lily, Jackson and Boyens, she recalls the triangle being inserted in reshoots during 2012. However, for Lily, pickups wouldn't begin until 2013, indicating she's conflating block 3 of principal photography with the pickups. Furthermore, at least one instance of Legolas begruding Kili and Tauriel's connection exists in early script drafts: Legolas was always going to interrupt Tauriel when she and Kili had a moment on the Lakeshore. Indeed, in watching the film, there isn't much of a "triangle" to speak of.
28 Per the commentary "wanted each of the three Hobbit movies to have a personality, a sort-of a story which each of the films is telling, as well as the overarching, larger story.[...] we kind of thought that the first movie is really the story of Bilbo, earning his place." For the second film, Special Effects Supervisor Eric Saindon said: "Pete wanted to play a very film noir look on this one.” The idea for ending the second film in an outright cliffhanger goes way back: the first of the two films was also always going to end in a cliffhanger. As for length, Philippa Boyens said the theatrical cut of the first film "came in within thirty to forty seconds of what we thought it was going to be." In the commentary, thirty minutes into the first film, Jackson estimates the length of the trilogy going forward as "seven [or] eight hours of cinema" which - without the credits - is within minutes of the actual overall length.
Its worth noting that - unlike The Lord of the Rings, which had different editors on each film - here Jabez Olssen edited all three films. During the scoring of The Desolation Smaug, Jackson found "time to work on the third Hobbit movie."
29 In the commentary to AUJ, Jackson observes that: "When you look at all three Hobbit movies, you know, the slightly comedic material is here at the beginning and as the journey goes certainly there's very little comedy in the third movie. " He repeated the same observation in retrospect in Comic-con 2014, ahead of the premiere of the third film. Reorienting the second film of the duology (and the two later films in the trilogy) towards Thorin is not dissimilar to how The Two Towers takes more interest in the Aragorn storyline than in Frodo's, which Jackson foresaw happening back in pre-production on those films.

2019.10.16 21:04 Chen_Geller "Chronicling The Hobbit" or Was the Two-film version really going to be any better?

Much (oh, soooo very much!) has been said of The Hobbit being a trilogy of films. Curiously, people who have been citing the thin volume of the book seem to forget that it was always going to be two films, so the jump to three wasn't that big of a leap. But the real question we need to be asking is: Was the two-film version really going to be any better?
In talking about this subject, there's a school of thought that seems bent on this concept that what they filmed originally was at least servicable, and it was what they did to the story in "reshoots", trying to fill up a trilogy, that ended up derailing the movies. Most people cite such things as Tauriel and her infatuation with Kili, Legolas' involvement, the expanded parts in Laketown, some of the action setpieces, Azog, etcetra as being the result of this restructuring. However, how many of these elements were actually shot after the fact?

How it was shot

The Hobbit trilogy had three periods of photography: Principal photography, which was divided into three "blocks", and began in 21 March 2011 and ended on the 6 July 2012, after 266 days of filming. Two units and ocassionaly a third, "splinter" unit shot the films. Sometimes later in July, a few more days of pickups were done with the main unit to help touch-up on the first film. In May 20, 2013 pickups started with main unit and a splinter unit for ten weeks. CGI-based footage was being created around the clock during production and post-production.
Its important to distinguish pickups from reshoots. All of Sir Peter Jackson's productions are devised in such a way that there's a pickup shoot in the middle of post-production for whatever shots that turn out to be missing during the editing process: they're not intended to change the film, as has been done in other movie productions, but rather to help polish the edit. The two-film Hobbit project was always intended to have a six week pickup shoot in 2013. By extending to three films, they merely expanded it by two more weeks, which is really no longer than the pickups done for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
Contrary to popular opinion, the decision to expand from two film to three was not a studio decision. While shooting, editor Jabez Olssen was creating an assembly live on the set. In looking at that assembly during one of the breaks between the blocks, the filmmakers decided
This doesn't feel quite right as two movies: it didn't structurally even feel quite right, where one finished and the other began, and so we started to - this is Fran [Walsh] and Philippa [Boyens] and myself[...]the three of us just privately started to knock the idea around [...] that maybe we are dealing with three films here, not two. And it wasn't until just before the end of the filming that we had Warner Brothers [executives] came down to New Zealand to visit and we, at that point, we had worked out enough of a structure that we could pitch them, to say: "listen, if we were to make three movies, this is how the first one would finish and the second one would begin."[...]they were shocked. You know, they couldn't quite believe what they were hearing. 1
So, what was it that didn't structurally feel quite right about the two-film version? And if the split to three was largely done editorially, how those that sit with reports that the filmmakers had to "wing it"? Was the production on the films really so lacking in foresight as its detractors say, or not? Lets find out together.
First, in answering the question of what Jackson found the two-film version to be lacking, we need to establish how it was structured. In the early days of sketching the films with co-writer and initial director Guillermo Del Toro, the filmmakers (Jackson, Walsh and Boyens were writing the films) considered several places in which to split the films. At one point, film one was going to contain everything between the beginning of the Quest and the arrival to Erebor. 2 At another point, they considered doing a bridge film between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. These plans, however, never affected the finished script of either the Del Toro or the Jackson version. Both had the Quest itself split across two movies: An Unexpected Journey and There and Back Again, split at the moment where Bard first contacts the Company.

An Unexpected Journey

An Unexpected Journey was always intended (even in Del Toro's time as director) to open with a framing device featuring old Bilbo Baggins (Sir Ian Holm) and Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), and the footage involving those actors was shot in July 2012. 3 The contents of the Erebor prologue were also largely determined during pre-production, although at some point the filmmakers considered flashing back to it when Balin was to relate it in Bag End, instead of placing it at the top of the film. Some of the actual shooting of the prologue, though, took place within the last couple of days of principal photography. 4 By contrast, the scenes that follow, which were set in The Shire and Bag-End were shot early in principal photography, and marked the first appearance of the Dwarves on-set.
Azog was in the film from the get-go. Originally, the Battle of Moria was going to be briefly glimpsed at the tail end of the prologue. Balin would then offer cryptic hints about the battle, which would have served to explain Thror's fate but not really establish that Azog was still alive. Azog would only appear when he attacks the company on the side of the Misty Mountains, and then the full backstory would have been revealed in Beorn's House, just before we learn that Azog is in league with The Necromancer. 5
Radagast and the storyline regarding Dol Guldur was also present from the very beginning, including in Del Toro's version.6 The Morgul Blade and its role in the White Council was also in the original two-film version, as were the High Fells. In the two-film version, Gandalf would have gone to the High Fells after he parts with Galadriel. The storm clouds he sees when he's talking to Radagast are meant to be the same ones that hinder the company at the High Pass, and then he'd regroup with them for Goblin-town and goes with them to Beorn's before leaving directly for Dol Guldur. 7
The Trollshaws sequence, Warg Chase, Rivendell, the White Council, and the Stone Giants were all scripted, shot in principal photography and slated to appear in the two-film version. Two notable additions were Bilbo hanging on the side of the High Pass, requiring a rescue by Thorin, which was shot in the 2012 pickups, and a scene that echoes it later when Bilbo tries to leave and is confronted by Bofur.8
After Goblintown and the confrotation with Gollum - both of which were shot to be pretty much as they are in the finished film - Azog would attack. This scene was also differnt, but only in that - once Azog knocked Thorin down - the Eagles would have swooped in almost instantenously to save him and the company. Another minute and a half of Bilbo and some of the other Dwarves coming to his aid was shot, still in principal photography. Since Bilbo saving Thorin wasn't in the original cut, they didn't originally have a major reconciliation on the Carrock, but footage was shot of Thorin warming somewhat up to Bilbo based on what he said about his home before Azog attacked. 9
This is where things get interesting. Jackson estimates that the setpiece on the slopes of the Misty Mountains was going to be about "two-third of the way" into the first film in the two film version. Instead of climaxing with the first confrontation with Azog, the film would have continued through the Wilderland, Beorn's House (including the Dwarves being introduced to Beorn in pairs), Mirkwood, the Spiders and the Woodland Realm. This section of the film was again, appears in the finished film very much like it would have in the original An Unexpected Journey, although a few inserts of dialogue were added before the entry to Mirkwood in the 2013 pickups. Tauriel was present in this version, as was Legolas, who confiscates Thorin's sword. At one point, the confrontation with Thranduil was going to be different, and include Dwalin and Balin, but otherwise the Woodland Realm setpiece existed very much as it does in The Desolation of Smaug.10
The climax of the film was intended to intercut Gandalf's exploration of Dol Guldur with the Barrel sequence. In Dol Guldur, Gandalf would have found Thrain (not played here by Sir Antony Sher) and conversed with him briefly, but instead of fleeing with Gandalf from Azog and being killed during the confrontation with The Necromancer, Bolg would have killed him, which would then prompt Gandalf (having seen the secret army) to flee, only to be confronted with and defeated by the Necromancer, now revealed as Sauron.11
The Barrel sequence was going to be the action climax of the film. At one point, the sluice gate was going to be at the end of the sequence, so that Kili scoring a poisonous wound would act to highten the stakes, although the shape of the finished sequence, with the sluice gate being at the top of the sequence, seems to have been decided quite early on. Originally, Azog would have appeared here instead of Bolg. Kili's wound and Gandalf's incarceration would act as loose threads going into the next film. 12
Thorin would have reconcilled with Bilbo based on his ingenuity to use the Barrels, and then Bard's silhuette would have appeared over the company, and the film would cut upon that as a cliffhanger. Somewhere in this sequence, the filmmakers were considering to put the montage in which the Thrush reaches Erebor and we cut into the mountain where Smaug awakes. 13

There and Back Again

The second film was intended to begin in medias res with Bard taking the Dwarves across the lake. Tauriel, Legolas and Thranduil interrogating Narzug was meant to recapitulate the Tauriel-Kili subplot. Laketown would have occupied the film's first act, and included all the scenes that feature in the film: the covering of the Dwarves in fish, confrontation with Braga, the Dwarves coming out of Bard's toilet, the Master eating bollocks.14
Thorin was going to leave Kili behind with Fili, Bofur and Oin, while Tauriel would track the Orcs to Bard's House, joined by Legolas. Bard would have gone to place the Black Arrow to the bow, but arrested by Braga, although the sequence was shorter in the two-film cut, as more footage of it was shot in the 2013 pickups.15
Bilbo's conversation with Smaug - in which it was established that Smaug was in league with Sauron - was originally shorter and ended with Smaug becoming enraged and leaving the mountain, trying to kill the Dwarves on the mountainside before they entered the hidden Door for shelter. Smaug then left for Laketown. 16
The scenes with Thorin outside deliberating what he was going to do were done in the 2013 pickups, as was the confrontation between the company and Smaug.17
The conflageration of Laketown would follow. The sequence, including the death of the Master, Bard escaping capture and Bain retrieving the Black Arrow, which was fired off of his shoulder, was shot in principal photography, as well. This was to be intercut with Sauron appearing to Gandalf, looking for the other Elven Rings just as Galadriel arrives to rescue him. The Battle of Dol Guldur ensues, very much as it does in the film. 18
At one point, Gandalf would then - after taking a horse and staff from Radagast - pursue the spirit of The Necromancer East and North, where he would see the second army, that of Gundabad, assemble and then run back to warn the company at Erebor. Instead, in the finished film, Legolas discovers that Bolg hails from Gundabad and takes Tauriel there to discover this, which was shot in the 2013 pickups.19
This happens not before Tauriel and Kili confess their feelings on the Lakeshore. At one point, they were going to kiss in this scene, but at Lilly's advice it was decided to postpone that moment until after Kili's demise.20
Thorin's dragon sickness and the tilting towards war were set to be explored in much the same way that they are in the finished film. Many of the scenes with him negotiating with Bard and later with Thranduil were shot quite early on. Gandalf would arrive at this point, and explain the strategic signifcance of Sauron capturing the mountain. 21
Eventually, Thorin was to snap out of the dragon sickness after a brief confrontation with Dwalin. The original idea was that he would look at a golden cup and see his reflection morph into that of the dragon. This was later replaced with him wandering through the gold and sinking into the coin mounds. However, while working on the third film, Peter Jackson decided to use the aftermath of the confrontation with Smaug, which was added to the end of the Second film, to devise a new way to use this footage in which Thorin sees the Dragon appear in the gold beneath him and imagines sinking in the gold. The scene of a recovered Thorin approaching his comrades and rallying them to a last charge was however shot in principal photography, albeit near the very end. 22
The tactics of the Battle of the Five Armies weren't figured out during principal photography and the script of those scenes wasn't good enough in Peter Jackson's mind. Some elements including fighting in the streets of Dale and the scenes involving Dain were shot in principal photography, but the rest was pushed to the 2013 pickups, and its this material which constituted the bulk of the pickup footage. 23
This included Tauriel's confrontation with Thranduil and her leaving for Ravenhill with Legolas, much of the action in the fields and almost all of the footage on Ravenhill, namely Thorin's climactic fight with Azog, which was shot on the very last day. New additions to the script included the chariot sequence, and Legolas fight with Bolg. Thorin's funeral, however, as well as Bilbo's return to The Shire were filmed in principal photography.24

Assesment

We can now see that the vast majority of footage found in the trilogy was in fact shot for the two-film version anyway. There were also a whole host of deleted scenes, including Tauriel healing one of Bard's daughters on the Lakeshore, more material partaining to Legolas mother, added material in the prologue, more Dol Guldur material (including Gandalf finding a Palantir and peering through it to see Smaug wreaking havoc during the Battle of the Five Armies) and more footage of Beorn. Nevertheless, to say that the supposedly extraneous material on the films was shot solely with the intention of filling up three movies is categorically false.
Indeed, in looking specifically at where the original An Unexpected Journey was supposed to end, one can really understand Sir Peter Jackson's structural issues with it. While the barrel sequence could make a good action climax, the idea of a cliffhanger involving Bard's silhouette is not very enticing. If we compare this to the cliffhanger that's actually present in The Desolation of Smaug, that cliffhanger was the result of the characters actions, whereas in the script to the two-film version, the cliffhanger is added unto the climax, with little setup for Bard's character. The opening of the second film, too, seems not to be very interesting.
Some specific ideas present in the two-film cut seem by far inferior to what's in the three-film cut. Previz for Bilbo's fight with the spiders looks far less enganging than the fight involving the Dwarves, which appears in the finished film. The absence of the scene with Bofur in An Unexpected Journey is shocking, as it turned out to be one of that film's most heartfelt scenes, and Thorin snapping out of his dragon sickness is much better told in The Battle of the Five Armies than it was going to be in There and Back Again.
Furthermore, given the amount of material which they were trying to squeeze into both entries in the two film version, it would have made for even longer and more oddly-paced films. Probably close to Jackson's King Kong where the theatrical cut was three hours and the extended cut was three-and-a-half hours. Surely, some of the subplots which aren't known for their popularity such as Tauriel or Dol Guldur would probably have been cut shorter in the edit, but instead of removing their offending nature, it would have just made them appear all the more haphazard and undercooked.
The claims that the trilogy was without preplanning are fundementally false. While it was more rushed than The Lord of the Rings, most of the trilogy's scenes down to individual beats and lines were scripted in advance. Many scenes which appear in The Battle of the Five Armies, which came out in 2014, were already shot in early 2011. Even some of the scenes that ended up being shot in pickups were at least conceptualized by the filmmakers during the shoot, and almost all of the material shot or rendered during the pickups was already scripted and at least in-part previsualized by the time the filmmakers completed the extended edition of the first film.
Those elements which were not planned sufficiently ahead had mostly to do with the third film, and it was therefore all the more beneficial that the split to three films occured, as it allowed Jackson a whole added year to grapple with those sequences. The Lord of the Rings, its important to note, also had additional sequences after the fact: the original Ent attack on Isengard, for instance, was far less prominent than in the final film.
All in all, given the evidence, it is my view that the decision to move from two films to three, given the circumstances, was the right one. Even if you dislike the trilogy, the evidence does at least seem to suggest that a duology wouldn't have been any better.

Jackson also said this in the commentary to An Unexpected Journey: "before we ever spoke to the studio, Phil[ippa], Fran and I sat down and restructured the story so that we knew in our mind that we would know how to make three standalone films." Another interview on the matter is consistent with these accounts, as well.
2 So according to the commentary on The Desolation of Smaug.
3 According to Jackson's commentary on the first film: "I always thought it would be good to open The Hobbit with the Hobbit character, Bilbo Baggins, that we recognise.[...] We always were developing this idea of having the Bilbo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings period be the way that we enter the story." Del Toro, too, was enthusiastic about having Sir Ian Holm reprise his role.
4 Specifically, the shots of Thorin rallying the Dwarves of Erebor against Smaug at the gates were done in the tenth to last day of shooting. This would mean that by the time they had Thorin facing the Dragon, they already had the concept of him trying to slay him as the climax of the second film. As part of conceptualizing the prologue, Jackson and his co-writers did consider additional pieces like showing the Dwarves becoming lowly toy-makers but "none of that was ever photographed", according to Jackson's commentary on the film. Another concept was the Bree scene, which was eventually shot at the beginning of the 2013 pickups.
5 According to an earlier draft, Bilbo would explain that "Thror led his people to Moria, seeking to reclaim the ancient kingdom of Khazad Dum...but his enemies had got there first" while a brief montage of the fighting is shown. Jackson says in the commentary that they shot a "a much simpler version" of the scene in the Lonelands where Balin flashes back to the battle, intending to reveal the full backstory "in Beorn's House, which is quite a way into the story." They then reshot it in the 2012 pickups so that Balin revealed the entirety of the backstory in one fell swoop. Traces of Azog's backstory remain in the scenes in Beorn's House, as Beorn reflects upon his own grievances with the Orc. Of course, this comes shortly after Azog attacks Thorin on the slopes of the Misty Mountains. Originally, this was going to be the moment where Azog is revealed to be alive: "The audience realizes he's alive the moment Thorin realizes he's alive", Philippa Boyens says in the commentary to the film. This meant that two short scenes featuring Azog, one in Weathertop and one on the trail of the Dwarves leading up to the High Pass, were done in at the end of principal photography. Revealing Azog's backstory in Beorn's House would put it right before the reveal that Azog is subservient to The Necromancer, which was the original intention for the character
6 According to Philippa Boyens on the commentary: "We got into this really early on. I don't know if you remember, Pete[...it was] in LA, I think, we were doing our very first script meeting with Guillermo and we were talking about Dol Guldur, knowing that we wanted to go there."
7 The High Fells sequence existed in the cut of the first film long enough for Howard Shore to actually score it for An Unexpected Journey in 2012. It is unclear whether the scene originally ended with Gandalf stating decisively that Sauron has returned, but it was certainly meant to at least be implicit in the scene.
8 According to Jackson's commentary, "The Stone Giant [which Bilbo and half the company were hanging off of] was in the scene and basically they were now going to go straight into the cave and take shelter, but then we created this scene with Bilbo in jeopardy[...]in pickups.[...]We did a sort of pair [of scenes] it was the hanging off the cliff and then this one is the next beat in the story." However, the final confrontation with Thorin after Goblintown, which those scenes are meant to help set-up, was part of principal photography.
9 According to Jackson's commentary "it was the second time we shot the Carrock. We had filmed this sequence a few months earlier, but with the changes we made [...] we actually reshot this scene on our last day[...] just to really climax the story, the friendship between the two."
10 Jackson says this in the commentary to the first film. Behind the scenes footage dates the first filming of Thranduil's interrogation of Thorin to 7 September 2011.
11 So according to a call sheet dated 4 of June 2011: "Gandalf tries to lead Thrain out. Azog kills Thrain. Sauron appears and attacks Gandalf." The Orc referred to as Azog in the Dol Guldur sequences was actually Bolg, but ended up as a third, unrelated Orc called the Dungeon Keeper. Footage of Thrain leaping unto Gandalf actually appeared in the film's announcement trailer. Thrain's part was recast and expanded in pickups, but remains a rather minor addition to the film.
12 According to Christian Rivers at the Behind the Scenes features of the Barrel Scene: "the sluice gate that used to be sort-of at the end of the chase is now quite early on." Footage of Legolas leaping and balancing over Dwarf heads was shot in June 1st, 2012.
13 According to Philippa Boyens on the commentary to An Unexpected Journey, the montage to Erebor and the dragon's eye was "one of the first things I ever wrote" for the films. In the commentary to the Desolation of Smaug, Jackson discloses the last shot of the first film. The investigation of Narzug is listed as scene 224 of principal photography.
14 ibid. Specifically, according to call-sheets shown in behind-the-scenes footage for the second film, the Dwarves being covered in fish was shot on 6 March 2012. A draft of the script dated 22/08/2011 describes the Master eating testicles, which was shot on August 18. The Dwarves coming out of Bard's toilet was shot by Andy Serkis, who was only present on the Second Unit during Principal Photography. Even the little scene in which Alfrid informs the Master of the prophecy exists far enough back in the writing process to actually be used as the lines for the audition to the role of Alfrid. Tellingly enough, Peter Jackson tells Stephen Fry that they didn't run the rewrite involving the bollocks with the studio before shooting it, which (along with other evidence) would seem to go against the notion that the studio had a hand in creative decisions on these films.
15 The date on the slateboard for the scene of the fight in Bard's House is April 17th, 2012, with both Tauriel and Legolas clearly in the shot. The scene of Tauriel healing Kili was the first thing Evangeline Lilly ever shot for the films. While Legolas was always supposed to go off chasing Orcs, the bulk of his hunting of the Orcs was shot in pickups, as was his fight with Bolg.
16 https://youtu.be/YY07JsxhNTo?t=340 The scenes for the pickups were concieved during block 3 of principal photography. Scripting and previz work began after the first film's release in December 2012. According to an interview with Jackson, most of the material shot in pickups relates to the third film rather than the second, which seems true as the only sequences to be shot entirely in pickups for film two were Legolas' fight with Bolg, the Battle of the Forges and the Bree flashback. Inherent to the nature of pickups was doing certain scenes or shots over when the first attempt didn't sit well in the edit, or was botched. For instance, part of the Dwarves first encounter with Bard was reshot due to rain issues during the original shoot.
17 Smaug's basic design was decided upon in early 2012, but was not yet camera-ready during the first film. In February 2013, Jackson started working on Smaug, asking to remove two of his legs. At one point, he considered having Smaug speak psychically to Bilbo, but an animation study that showed the dragon convincingly lip-synced made him reconsider making the dragon speak. At this point, Jackson started a series of think-tank meetings intended to plot-out and previsualize the confrontation with Smaug. Philippa Boyens suggested using the forges to fight fire with fire, and Alan Lee suggested using molten gold to submerge the dragon. John Howe said the sequence took shape in "I guess about a month." The live action elements were shot in day 38 of the pickups, cocurrent with Cumberbatch recording the additional lines required for these scenes. According to Christian Rivers in the Book Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon, p. 90 "the bare bones of what made it into the film is essentially what we came up with months and months earlier." Actual rendering on Smaug's scenes took place at the very end of post-production, and even some of the earlier scenes in the treasure hoard were not finalized until late October and early November 2013.
18 Call-sheets trace the shooting of the White Council in Dol Guldur to 26 May 2011 (Galadriel banishes Sauron) and 30 May (Sauron interrogates Gandalf and the Dungeon master intends to cut off his ring finger as Galadriel shows up). A lot of the concepts for the CG aspect of the battle were already in store when Jackson directed those scenes.
19 According to Daniel Falconer, Middle Earth: From Script to Screen, p. 445: "A scene appeared in earlier versions of the script, in which Gandalf would pursue The Necromancer from Dol Guldur, following the shadowy figure east until he disappeared, a vast army of Orcs was amassing near the Sea of Rhun." The idea that Gandalf goes east actually survived in a brief shot in the third film where Gandalf can be seen riding through a barren landscape. "Later rewrites shifted the location of this revelation to the Weathered Heath", which is en route from Gundabad. The proper appearance of Gundabad itself was not in the script until the 2013 pickups, where Legolas takes Tauriel there. However, the idea that Legolas mother was killed there was present in the scripts from the very beginning. The White Gems intended to set-up Legolas mother appear in the extended cut of the first film, and indeed a statue of hers was used in the set of Mirwood, originally shot in Principal photography. https://youtu.be/LpSRZuqN7Oo?t=607
20 A draft of the screenplay dated 27/11/2011 has Kili and Tauriel kiss in this scene. All the footage on the Lakeshore (with the exception of Legolas telling Tauriel about Bolg, which was an insert) was shot in November and December 2011, during the on-location portion of principal photography. This includes Alfrid's footage.
21 According to Lee Pace, the horse used on-set to ride, was used for the very first time in the scene in which Thranduil rides up to Thorin's rampant. This places that scene earlier in the shoot than the scene in which Thranduil comes astride that Elk to Erebor in the prologue to the first film. A script draft of Gandalf in Thranduil's war tent explaining how the capture of Erebor by Azog in Sauron's name would result in the re-instating of the Kingdom of Angmar can be seen being read by the dialect coach of the films. Call-sheets glimpsed in passing during the behind-the-scenes footage on the Barrel sequence, show that scenes such as the Dwarves crushing the bridge into Erebor in preparation for an Elvish siege, Bilbo leaving Erebor (with Bofur's silent help) and war preparations in Dale were shot in day 250 of principal photography.
22 A callsheet glimpsed during behind-the-scenes footage on the barrel sequence dates Thorin rallying the Dwarves to day 251 of the shoot. Originally, they were going to be dressed in elaborate royal armour, but it was so bulky that a decision was made on the set to rid the actors of it. https://youtu.be/nfZCc4-rnWY?t=962 Another prefigured element in this section of the film includes the idea that the Iron-hill Dwarves would ride rams. A ram motif cropped up in the original design for Thorin's regal armour, and images of rams decorate Dain's lineage on the tapestry which Bard finds in the second film. Philippa Boyens, in the audio commentary, also claims that the idea of using the Wereworms existed "from very early on."
23 Its these scenes that Jackson didn't have the ample time to prepare for during the shoot. This would go on to be misquoted by the films' detractors as if to postulate that the storyline on all three films was being improvised, where in fact it wasn't. Jackson had a difficulty specifically with the Battle of the Five Armies, and specifically during principal photography. Therefore, it was decided to postpone dealing with those sequences until pickups. The Ravenhill skirmish and the battle in the streets of Dale were all shot during pickups, while the battle in the open field - which was heavily reliant on CGI - was extentsivelly previsualized at this period - and rendered during post-production on the third film.
24 Tauriel's infatuation with Kili was always intended to end in tragedy. The way in which this came about, and the notion that it would be Bolg who would bring this about, was however concieved in the think-tank meetings leading up to pickups. The final confrontation between Thorin and Azog was always intended to be on Ravenhill - a script draft dated to mid-2012, seen in the behind-the-scenes footage of Thorin's Dragon Sickness, does mention Azog's sentry as being stationed on Ravenhill, which required Thorin and Company to storm up that hill.

2019.10.16 15:13 Chen_Geller "Chronicling The Hobbit" or Was the Two-film version really going to be any better?

Much (oh, soooo very much!) has been said of The Hobbit being a trilogy of films. Curiously, people who have been citing the thin volume of the book seem to forget that it was always going to be two films, so the jump to three wasn't that big of a leap. But the real question we need to be asking is: Was the two-film version really going to be any better?
In talking about this subject, there's a school of thought that seems bent on this concept that what they filmed originally was at least servicable, and it was what they did to the story in "reshoots", trying to fill up a trilogy, that ended up derailing the movies. Most people cite such things as Tauriel and her infatuation with Kili, Legolas' involvement, the expanded parts in Laketown, some of the action setpieces, Azog, etcetra as being the result of this restructuring. However, how many of these elements were actually shot after the fact?

How it was shot

The Hobbit trilogy had three periods of photography: Principal photography, which was divided into three "blocks", and began in 21 March 2011 and ended on the 6 July 2012, after 266 days of filming. Two units and ocassionaly a third, "splinter" unit shot the films. Sometimes later in July, a few more days of pickups were done with the main unit to help touch-up on the first film. In May 20, 2013 pickups started with main unit and a splinter unit for ten weeks. CGI-based footage was being created around the clock during production and post-production.
Its important to distinguish pickups from reshoots. All of Sir Peter Jackson's productions are devised in such a way that there's a pickup shoot in the middle of post-production for whatever shots that turn out to be missing during the editing process: they're not intended to change the film, as has been done in other movie productions, but rather to help polish the edit. The two-film Hobbit project was always intended to have a six week pickup shoot in 2013. By extending to three films, they merely expanded it by two more weeks, which is really no longer than the pickups done for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
Contrary to popular opinion, the decision to expand from two film to three was not a studio decision. While shooting, editor Jabez Olssen was creating an assembly live on the set. In looking at that assembly during one of the breaks between the blocks, the filmmakers decided
This doesn't feel quite right as two movies: it didn't structurally even feel quite right, where one finished and the other began, and so we started to - this is Fran [Walsh] and Philippa [Boyens] and myself[...]the three of us just privately started to knock the idea around [...] that maybe we are dealing with three films here, not two. And it wasn't until just before the end of the filming that we had Warner Brothers [executives] came down to New Zealand to visit and we, at that point, we had worked out enough of a structure that we could pitch them, to say: "listen, if we were to make three movies, this is how the first one would finish and the second one would begin."[...]they were shocked. You know, they couldn't quite believe what they were hearing. 1
So, what was it that didn't structurally feel quite right about the two-film version? And if the split to three was largely done editorially, how those that sit with reports that the filmmakers had to "wing it"? Was the production on the films really so lacking in foresight as its detractors say, or not? Lets find out together.
First, in answering the question of what Jackson found the two-film version to be lacking, we need to establish how it was structured. In the early days of sketching the films with co-writer and initial director Guillermo Del Toro, the filmmakers (Jackson, Walsh and Boyens were writing the films) considered several places in which to split the films. At one point, film one was going to contain everything between the beginning of the Quest and the arrival to Erebor. 2 At another point, they considered doing a bridge film between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. These plans, however, never affected the finished script of either the Del Toro or the Jackson version. Both had the Quest itself split across two movies: An Unexpected Journey and There and Back Again, split at the moment where Bard first contacts the Company.

An Unexpected Journey

An Unexpected Journey was always intended (even in Del Toro's time as director) to open with a framing device featuring old Bilbo Baggins (Sir Ian Holm) and Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), and the footage involving those actors was shot in July 2012. 3 The contents of the Erebor prologue were also largely determined during pre-production, although at some point the filmmakers considered flashing back to it when Balin was to relate it in Bag End, instead of placing it at the top of the film. Some of the actual shooting of the prologue, though, took place within the last couple of days of principal photography. 4 By contrast, the scenes that follow, which were set in The Shire and Bag-End were shot early in principal photography, and marked the first appearance of the Dwarves on-set.
Azog was in the film from the get-go. Originally, the Battle of Moria was going to be briefly glimpsed at the tail end of the prologue. Balin would then offer cryptic hints about the battle, which would have served to explain Thror's fate but not really establish that Azog was still alive. Azog would only appear when he attacks the company on the side of the Misty Mountains, and then the full backstory would have been revealed in Beorn's House, just before we learn that Azog is in league with The Necromancer. 5
Radagast and the storyline regarding Dol Guldur was also present from the very beginning, including in Del Toro's version.6 The Morgul Blade and its role in the White Council was also in the original two-film version, as were the High Fells. In the two-film version, Gandalf would have gone to the High Fells after he parts with Galadriel. The storm clouds he sees when he's talking to Radagast are meant to be the same ones that hinder the company at the High Pass, and then he'd regroup with them for Goblin-town and goes with them to Beorn's before leaving directly for Dol Guldur. 7
The Trollshaws sequence, Warg Chase, Rivendell, the White Council, and the Stone Giants were all scripted, shot in principal photography and slated to appear in the two-film version. Two notable additions were Bilbo hanging on the side of the High Pass, requiring a rescue by Thorin, which was shot in the 2012 pickups, and a scene that echoes it later when Bilbo tries to leave and is confronted by Bofur.8
After Goblintown and the confrotation with Gollum - both of which were shot to be pretty much as they are in the finished film - Azog would attack. This scene was also differnt, but only in that - once Azog knocked Thorin down - the Eagles would have swooped in almost instantenously to save him and the company. Another minute and a half of Bilbo and some of the other Dwarves coming to his aid was shot, still in principal photography. Since Bilbo saving Thorin wasn't in the original cut, they didn't originally have a major reconciliation on the Carrock, but footage was shot of Thorin warming somewhat up to Bilbo based on what he said about his home before Azog attacked. 9
This is where things get interesting. Jackson estimates that the setpiece on the slopes of the Misty Mountains was going to be about "two-third of the way" into the first film in the two film version. Instead of climaxing with the first confrontation with Azog, the film would have continued through the Wilderland, Beorn's House (including the Dwarves being introduced to Beorn in pairs), Mirkwood, the Spiders and the Woodland Realm. This section of the film was again, appears in the finished film very much like it would have in the original An Unexpected Journey, although a few inserts of dialogue were added before the entry to Mirkwood in the 2013 pickups. Tauriel was present in this version, as was Legolas, who confiscates Thorin's sword. At one point, the confrontation with Thranduil was going to be different, and include Dwalin and Balin, but otherwise the Woodland Realm setpiece existed very much as it does in The Desolation of Smaug.10
The climax of the film was intended to intercut Gandalf's exploration of Dol Guldur with the Barrel sequence. In Dol Guldur, Gandalf would have found Thrain (not played here by Sir Antony Sher) and conversed with him briefly, but instead of fleeing with Gandalf from Azog and being killed during the confrontation with The Necromancer, Bolg would have killed him, which would then prompt Gandalf (having seen the secret army) to flee, only to be confronted with and defeated by the Necromancer, now revealed as Sauron.11
The Barrel sequence was going to be the action climax of the film. At one point, the sluice gate was going to be at the end of the sequence, so that Kili scoring a poisonous wound would act to highten the stakes, although the shape of the finished sequence, with the sluice gate being at the top of the sequence, seems to have been decided quite early on. Originally, Azog would have appeared here instead of Bolg. Kili's wound and Gandalf's incarceration would act as loose threads going into the next film. 12
Thorin would have reconcilled with Bilbo based on his ingenuity to use the Barrels, and then Bard's silhuette would have appeared over the company, and the film would cut upon that as a cliffhanger. Somewhere in this sequence, the filmmakers were considering to put the montage in which the Thrush reaches Erebor and we cut into the mountain where Smaug awakes. 13

There and Back Again

The second film was intended to begin in medias res with Bard taking the Dwarves across the lake. Tauriel, Legolas and Thranduil interrogating Narzug was meant to recapitulate the Tauriel-Kili subplot. Laketown would have occupied the film's first act, and included all the scenes that feature in the film: the covering of the Dwarves in fish, confrontation with Braga, the Dwarves coming out of Bard's toilet, the Master eating bollocks.14
Thorin was going to leave Kili behind with Fili, Bofur and Oin, while Tauriel would track the Orcs to Bard's House, joined by Legolas. Bard would have gone to place the Black Arrow to the bow, but arrested by Braga, although the sequence was shorter in the two-film cut, as more footage of it was shot in the 2013 pickups.15
Bilbo's conversation with Smaug - in which it was established that Smaug was in league with Sauron - was originally shorter and ended with Smaug becoming enraged and leaving the mountain, trying to kill the Dwarves on the mountainside before they entered the hidden Door for shelter. Smaug then left for Laketown. 16
The scenes with Thorin outside deliberating what he was going to do were done in the 2013 pickups, as was the confrontation between the company and Smaug.17
The conflageration of Laketown would follow. The sequence, including the death of the Master, Bard escaping capture and Bain retrieving the Black Arrow, which was fired off of his shoulder, was shot in principal photography, as well. This was to be intercut with Sauron appearing to Gandalf, looking for the other Elven Rings just as Galadriel arrives to rescue him. The Battle of Dol Guldur ensues, very much as it does in the film. 18
At one point, Gandalf would then - after taking a horse and staff from Radagast - pursue the spirit of The Necromancer East and North, where he would see the second army, that of Gundabad, assemble and then run back to warn the company at Erebor. Instead, in the finished film, Legolas discovers that Bolg hails from Gundabad and takes Tauriel there to discover this, which was shot in the 2013 pickups.19
This happens not before Tauriel and Kili confess their feelings on the Lakeshore. At one point, they were going to kiss in this scene, but at Lilly's advice it was decided to postpone that moment until after Kili's demise.20
Thorin's dragon sickness and the tilting towards war were set to be explored in much the same way that they are in the finished film. Many of the scenes with him negotiating with Bard and later with Thranduil were shot quite early on. Gandalf would arrive at this point, and explain the strategic signifcance of Sauron capturing the mountain. 21
Eventually, Thorin was to snap out of the dragon sickness after a brief confrontation with Dwalin. The original idea was that he would look at a golden cup and see his reflection morph into that of the dragon. This was later replaced with him wandering through the gold and sinking into the coin mounds. However, while working on the third film, Peter Jackson decided to use the aftermath of the confrontation with Smaug, which was added to the end of the Second film, to devise a new way to use this footage in which Thorin sees the Dragon appear in the gold beneath him and imagines sinking in the gold. The scene of a recovered Thorin approaching his comrades and rallying them to a last charge was however shot in principal photography, albeit near the very end. 22
The tactics of the Battle of the Five Armies weren't figured out during principal photography and the script of those scenes wasn't good enough in Peter Jackson's mind. Some elements including fighting in the streets of Dale and the scenes involving Dain were shot in principal photography, but the rest was pushed to the 2013 pickups, and its this material which constituted the bulk of the pickup footage. 23
This included Tauriel's confrontation with Thranduil and her leaving for Ravenhill with Legolas, much of the action in the fields and almost all of the footage on Ravenhill, namely Thorin's climactic fight with Azog, which was shot on the very last day. New additions to the script included the chariot sequence, and Legolas fight with Bolg. Thorin's funeral, however, as well as Bilbo's return to The Shire were filmed in principal photography.24

Assesment

We can now see that the vast majority of footage found in the trilogy was in fact shot for the two-film version anyway. There were also a whole host of deleted scenes, including Tauriel healing one of Bard's daughters on the Lakeshore, more material partaining to Legolas mother, added material in the prologue, more Dol Guldur material (including Gandalf finding a Palantir and peering through it to see Smaug wreaking havoc during the Battle of the Five Armies) and more footage of Beorn. Nevertheless, to say that the supposedly extraneous material on the films was shot solely with the intention of filling up three movies is categorically false.
Indeed, in looking specifically at where the original An Unexpected Journey was supposed to end, one can really understand Sir Peter Jackson's structural issues with it. While the barrel sequence could make a good action climax, the idea of a cliffhanger involving Bard's silhouette is not very enticing. If we compare this to the cliffhanger that's actually present in The Desolation of Smaug, that cliffhanger was the result of the characters actions, whereas in the script to the two-film version, the cliffhanger is added unto the climax, with little setup for Bard's character. The opening of the second film, too, seems not to be very interesting.
Some specific ideas present in the two-film cut seem by far inferior to what's in the three-film cut. Previz for Bilbo's fight with the spiders looks far less enganging than the fight involving the Dwarves, which appears in the finished film. The absence of the scene with Bofur in An Unexpected Journey is shocking, as it turned out to be one of that film's most heartfelt scenes, and Thorin snapping out of his dragon sickness is much better told in The Battle of the Five Armies than it was going to be in There and Back Again.
Furthermore, given the amount of material which they were trying to squeeze into both entries in the two film version, it would have made for even longer and more oddly-paced films. Probably close to Jackson's King Kong where the theatrical cut was three hours and the extended cut was three-and-a-half hours. Surely, some of the subplots which aren't known for their popularity such as Tauriel or Dol Guldur would probably have been cut shorter in the edit, but instead of removing their offending nature, it would have just made them appear all the more haphazard and undercooked.
The claims that the trilogy was without preplanning are fundementally false. While it was more rushed than The Lord of the Rings, most of the trilogy's scenes down to individual beats and lines were scripted in advance. Many scenes which appear in The Battle of the Five Armies, which came out in 2014, were already shot in early 2011. Even some of the scenes that ended up being shot in pickups were at least conceptualized by the filmmakers during the shoot, and almost all of the material shot or rendered during the pickups was already scripted and at least in-part previsualized by the time the filmmakers completed the extended edition of the first film.
Those elements which were not planned sufficiently ahead had mostly to do with the third film, and it was therefore all the more beneficial that the split to three films occured, as it allowed Jackson a whole added year to grapple with those sequences. The Lord of the Rings, its important to note, also had additional sequences after the fact: the original Ent attack on Isengard, for instance, was far less prominent than in the final film.

All in all, given the evidence, it is my view that the decision to move from two films to three, given the circumstances, was the right one. Even if you dislike the trilogy, the evidence does at least seem to suggest that a duology wouldn't have been any better.

1 https://youtu.be/9XDsSr3sGSI?t=670. Jackson also said this in the commentary to An Unexpected Journey: "before we ever spoke to the studio, Phil[ippa], Fran and I sat down and restructured the story so that we knew in our mind that we would know how to make three standalone films." Another interview on the matter is consistent with these accounts, as well.
2 So according to the commentary on The Desolation of Smaug.
3 According to Jackson's commentary on the first film: "I always thought it would be good to open The Hobbit with the Hobbit character, Bilbo Baggins, that we recognise.[...] We always were developing this idea of having the Bilbo Baggins from The Lord of the Rings period be the way that we enter the story." Del Toro, too, was enthusiastic about having Sir Ian Holm reprise his role.
4 Specifically, the shots of Thorin rallying the Dwarves of Erebor against Smaug at the gates were done in the tenth to last day of shooting. This would mean that by the time they had Thorin facing the Dragon, they already had the concept of him trying to slay him as the climax of the second film. As part of conceptualizing the prologue, Jackson and his co-writers did consider additional pieces like showing the Dwarves becoming lowly toy-makers but "none of that was ever photographed", according to Jackson's commentary on the film. Another concept was the Bree scene, which was eventually shot at the beginning of the 2013 pickups.
5 According to an earlier draft, Bilbo would explain that "Thror led his people to Moria, seeking to reclaim the ancient kingdom of Khazad Dum...but his enemies had got there first" while a brief montage of the fighting is shown. Jackson says in the commentary that they shot a "a much simpler version" of the scene in the Lonelands where Balin flashes back to the battle, intending to reveal the full backstory "in Beorn's House, which is quite a way into the story." They then reshot it in the 2012 pickups so that Balin revealed the entirety of the backstory in one fell swoop. Traces of Azog's backstory remain in the scenes in Beorn's House, as Beorn reflects upon his own grievances with the Orc. Of course, this comes shortly after Azog attacks Thorin on the slopes of the Misty Mountains. Originally, this was going to be the moment where Azog is revealed to be alive: "The audience realizes he's alive the moment Thorin realizes he's alive", Philippa Boyens says in the commentary to the film. This meant that two short scenes featuring Azog, one in Weathertop and one on the trail of the Dwarves leading up to the High Pass, were done in at the end of principal photography. Revealing Azog's backstory in Beorn's House would put it right before the reveal that Azog is subservient to The Necromancer, which was the original intention for the character
6 According to Philippa Boyens on the commentary: "We got into this really early on. I don't know if you remember, Pete[...it was] in LA, I think, we were doing our very first script meeting with Guillermo and we were talking about Dol Guldur, knowing that we wanted to go there."
7 The High Fells sequence existed in the cut of the first film long enough for Howard Shore to actually score it for An Unexpected Journey in 2012. It is unclear whether the scene originally ended with Gandalf stating decisively that Sauron has returned, but it was certainly meant to at least be implicit in the scene.
8 According to Jackson's commentary, "The Stone Giant [which Bilbo and half the company were hanging off of] was in the scene and basically they were now going to go straight into the cave and take shelter, but then we created this scene with Bilbo in jeopardy[...]in pickups.[...]We did a sort of pair [of scenes] it was the hanging off the cliff and then this one is the next beat in the story." However, the final confrontation with Thorin after Goblintown, which those scenes are meant to help set-up, was part of principal photography.
9 According to Jackson's commentary "it was the second time we shot the Carrock. We had filmed this sequence a few months earlier, but with the changes we made [...] we actually reshot this scene on our last day[...] just to really climax the story, the friendship between the two."
10 Jackson says this in the commentary to the first film. Behind the scenes footage dates the first filming of Thranduil's interrogation of Thorin to 7 September 2011.
11 So according to a call sheet dated 4 of June 2011: "Gandalf tries to lead Thrain out. Azog kills Thrain. Sauron appears and attacks Gandalf." The Orc referred to as Azog in the Dol Guldur sequences was actually Bolg, but ended up as a third, unrelated Orc called the Dungeon Keeper. Footage of Thrain leaping unto Gandalf actually appeared in the film's announcement trailer. Thrain's part was recast and expanded in pickups, but remains a rather minor addition to the film.
12 According to Christian Rivers at the Behind the Scenes features of the Barrel Scene: "the sluice gate that used to be sort-of at the end of the chase is now quite early on." Footage of Legolas leaping and balancing over Dwarf heads was shot in June 1st, 2012.
13 According to Philippa Boyens on the commentary to An Unexpected Journey, the montage to Erebor and the dragon's eye was "one of the first things I ever wrote" for the films. In the commentary to the Desolation of Smaug, Jackson discloses the last shot of the first film. The investigation of Narzug is listed as scene 224 of principal photography.
14 ibid. Specifically, according to call-sheets shown in behind-the-scenes footage for the second film, the Dwarves being covered in fish was shot on 6 March 2012. A draft of the script dated 22/08/2011 describes the Master eating testicles, which was shot on August 18. The Dwarves coming out of Bard's toilet was shot by Andy Serkis, who was only present on the Second Unit during Principal Photography. Even the little scene in which Alfrid informs the Master of the prophecy exists far enough back in the writing process to actually be used as the lines for the audition to the role of Alfrid. Tellingly enough, Peter Jackson tells Stephen Fry that they didn't run the rewrite involving the bollocks with the studio before shooting it, which (along with other evidence) would seem to go against the notion that the studio had a hand in creative decisions on these films.
15 The date on the slateboard for the scene of the fight in Bard's House is April 17th, 2012, with both Tauriel and Legolas clearly in the shot. The scene of Tauriel healing Kili was the first thing Evangeline Lilly ever shot for the films. While Legolas was always supposed to go off chasing Orcs, the bulk of his hunting of the Orcs was shot in pickups, as was his fight with Bolg.
16 https://youtu.be/YY07JsxhNTo?t=340 The scenes for the pickups were concieved during block 3 of principal photography. Scripting and previz work began after the first film's release in December 2012. According to an interview with Jackson, most of the material shot in pickups relates to the third film rather than the second, which seems true as the only sequences to be shot entirely in pickups for film two were Legolas' fight with Bolg, the Battle of the Forges and the Bree flashback. Inherent to the nature of pickups was doing certain scenes or shots over when the first attempt didn't sit well in the edit, or was botched. For instance, part of the Dwarves first encounter with Bard was reshot due to rain issues during the original shoot.
17 Smaug's basic design was decided upon in early 2012, but was not yet camera-ready during the first film. In February 2013, Jackson started working on Smaug, asking to remove two of his legs. At one point, he considered having Smaug speak psychically to Bilbo, but an animation study that showed the dragon convincingly lip-synced made him reconsider making the dragon speak. At this point, Jackson started a series of think-tank meetings intended to plot-out and previsualize the confrontation with Smaug. Philippa Boyens suggested using the forges to fight fire with fire, and Alan Lee suggested using molten gold to submerge the dragon. John Howe said the sequence took shape in "I guess about a month." The live action elements were shot in day 38 of the pickups, cocurrent with Cumberbatch recording the additional lines required for these scenes. According to Christian Rivers in the Book Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon, p. 90 "the bare bones of what made it into the film is essentially what we came up with months and months earlier." Actual rendering on Smaug's scenes took place at the very end of post-production, and even some of the earlier scenes in the treasure hoard were not finalized until late October and early November 2013.
18 Call-sheets trace the shooting of the White Council in Dol Guldur to 26 May 2011 (Galadriel banishes Sauron) and 30 May (Sauron interrogates Gandalf and the Dungeon master intends to cut off his ring finger as Galadriel shows up). A lot of the concepts for the CG aspect of the battle were already in store when Jackson directed those scenes.
19 According to Daniel Falconer, Middle Earth: From Script to Screen, p. 445: "A scene appeared in earlier versions of the script, in which Gandalf would pursue The Necromancer from Dol Guldur, following the shadowy figure east until he disappeared, a vast army of Orcs was amassing near the Sea of Rhun." The idea that Gandalf goes east actually survived in a brief shot in the third film where Gandalf can be seen riding through a barren landscape. "Later rewrites shifted the location of this revelation to the Weathered Heath", which is en route from Gundabad. The proper appearance of Gundabad itself was not in the script until the 2013 pickups, where Legolas takes Tauriel there. However, the idea that Legolas mother was killed there was present in the scripts from the very beginning. The White Gems intended to set-up Legolas mother appear in the extended cut of the first film, and indeed a statue of hers was used in the set of Mirwood, originally shot in Principal photography. https://youtu.be/LpSRZuqN7Oo?t=607
20 A draft of the screenplay dated 27/11/2011 has Kili and Tauriel kiss in this scene. All the footage on the Lakeshore (with the exception of Legolas telling Tauriel about Bolg, which was an insert) was shot in November and December 2011, during the on-location portion of principal photography. This includes Alfrid's footage.
21 According to Lee Pace, the horse used on-set to ride, was used for the very first time in the scene in which Thranduil rides up to Thorin's rampant. This places that scene earlier in the shoot than the scene in which Thranduil comes astride that Elk to Erebor in the prologue to the first film. A script draft of Gandalf in Thranduil's war tent explaining how the capture of Erebor by Azog in Sauron's name would result in the re-instating of the Kingdom of Angmar can be seen being read by the dialect coach of the films. Call-sheets glimpsed in passing during the behind-the-scenes footage on the Barrel sequence, show that scenes such as the Dwarves crushing the bridge into Erebor in preparation for an Elvish siege, Bilbo leaving Erebor (with Bofur's silent help) and war preparations in Dale were shot in day 250 of principal photography.
22 A callsheet glimpsed during behind-the-scenes footage on the barrel sequence dates Thorin rallying the Dwarves to day 251 of the shoot. Originally, they were going to be dressed in elaborate royal armour, but it was so bulky that a decision was made on the set to rid the actors of it. https://youtu.be/nfZCc4-rnWY?t=962 Another prefigured element in this section of the film includes the idea that the Iron-hill Dwarves would ride rams. A ram motif cropped up in the original design for Thorin's regal armour, and images of rams decorate Dain's lineage on the tapestry which Bard finds in the second film. Philippa Boyens, in the audio commentary, also claims that the idea of using the Wereworms existed "from very early on."
23 Its these scenes that Jackson didn't have the ample time to prepare for during the shoot. This would go on to be misquoted by the films' detractors as if to postulate that the storyline on all three films was being improvised, where in fact it wasn't. Jackson had a difficulty specifically with the Battle of the Five Armies, and specifically during principal photography. Therefore, it was decided to postpone dealing with those sequences until pickups. The Ravenhill skirmish and the battle in the streets of Dale were all shot during pickups, while the battle in the open field - which was heavily reliant on CGI - was extentsivelly previsualized at this period - and rendered during post-production on the third film.
24 Tauriel's infatuation with Kili was always intended to end in tragedy. The way in which this came about, and the notion that it would be Bolg who would bring this about, was however concieved in the think-tank meetings leading up to pickups. The final confrontation between Thorin and Azog was always intended to be on Ravenhill - a script draft dated to mid-2012, seen in the behind-the-scenes footage of Thorin's Dragon Sickness, does mention Azog's sentry as being stationed on Ravenhill, which required Thorin and Company to storm up that hill.

2019.06.17 20:29 mrtoddw Sarasota 18-30 year old's Starter Guide v1.0

Congratulations on your choice (possibly poor choice /sarcasm) to pick Sarasota to start your new life. The purpose of this guide is to navigate those not used to Florida and the Sarasota area to activities and locations you’ll most likely want to enjoy living here. Sarasota and Florida, in general, are seen as a retirement area, so activities for younger people don’t get the same market share exposure. This guide is intended to be open-ended and allow for other users to comment below with their additions and thoughts. This guide is not intended to be an exhaustive guide but a list of places and things you’ll want to find in our area. Feel free to skip portions that don’t apply to yourself. As with absolutely ANYTHING, (Your Mileage May Vary).

Key


Open Late = Open past 10 pm. 🌙
Historic to Sarasota or Florida 🏛️
Significant Cultural Relevance 🤝
Great for Sightseeing 📸
Gator pond nearby. Exercise caution. 🐊
Emergency Information ⛑️

Housing

If you’re fresh out of your parent's house moving here for either school or just because you threw a dart at a map, likely you’ll need somewhere to live. Budgets may vary wildly depending upon how much you’ll be making and how many roommates you’ll be willing to live with. To make this guide the most available, I’ll make listings here to find rentals under $1,300/month. Realize, the more you pay in rent, the more availability opens up.

If you’re moving here alone and don’t know anyone:

Housing tips:

The housing market here has a lot of "invisible lines" that will greatly affect cost and availability. Very generally, everything West of 41 is extra pricey, and Lakewood Ranch is kinda like Stepford Wives but good for families.

Food

At some point, you’re going to get hungry. The cost of living is rather low here and food being some of the lowest prices in the country. I’ll split this into two parts, restaurants and grocery stores. Since food tastes are broad, this is only a sampling of cuisine types. The Amish are down here and their cooking is divine.

Seafood tips:
You're almost always better off ordering fresh catch from the blackboard. A little knowledge of local fish can go a long way in helping you to avoid frozen crap shipped here from. Halfway around the world (which is, surprisingly, the majority of seafood sold even here). Some of the most popular and delicious local catches that you might not be familiar with are Pompano, Cobia, Hogfish and Tripletail.

Restaurant tips:
Visit the most popular places after 8pm. Baby boomers tend to be done with dinner by 7pm generally. St. Armands really cranks up after 8pm, same with Siesta Key.

The food here in Sarasota suffers greatly from the terrible feedback of old people whose tastes aren't compatible with anything bold, creative or spicy. Their complaints slowly turn the food at a lot of places here toward bland, over-salted denture fodder. This is especially true for ethnic restaurants, which are, on average, far superior just up the road in Bradenton where demographics are different.

Marijuana

Florida has medical marijuana. If you are over the age of 18 with a qualifying condition and medical history along with residency, you can get a recommendation for medical marijuana. If you’re here temporarily, you’re out of luck. Residency, all that’s required to prove is change your ID or a bill showing your new address.
What is a qualifying condition?
Also qualifies:

Go see a doctor or even a specialty doctor that only does recommendations. Get a recommendation. Pay the fees, buy the weed. It literally is that easy.

Outdoor tips:
Soak up as much time there as you can in May and October when the weather is nice but the Snowbirds are still away.

Notes about the Amish: 🏛️🤝The Amish have established a snowbird community in Sarasota. Pinecraft is the original vacation community established by the Amish since at least the mid-70s. Many Amish owned businesses are listed here. The Amish have always benefited very positively to the Sarasota community and are very culturally significant to the area.
Pinecraft: https://www.visitsarasota.com/article/pinecraft-amish-snowbird-community-sarasota
Discussion about the Amish: https://www.reddit.com/sarasota/comments/b5r5oo/lets_talk_amish/

Pinecraft is a place where Amish actually live. It's not a museum nor are they cosplaying. The Amish are very friendly and I've never had an issue asking anyone questions about the Amish lifestyle. It's not a place to go like a museum but it's important to know it's there.

Weather

Sarasota is a humid subtropic climate. (Hong Kong is similar) We have two major seasons, a wet and a dry season. We technically have all four seasons. Due to both where we sit on the line of latitude 27.34 °N, the longest day is 13:52:03 (Jun 22nd) and the shortest is 10:25:01 (Dec 22nd) and the lack of trees that lose leaves during the fall, you'd be hard pressed to notice it was fall or winter down here. The average weather is 82° and sunny.

June - Sept is the hottest part of the year. It's on average 95°, near 100% humidity 24/7 during this time of the year. The sun going down doesn't reduce the temperature. Staying out of the sun from 11 am until 4 pm is vital during this time. If you see someone outside past 11 am, they're either a tourist or someone who has to work. The Farmers Market is a ghost town by 10:45 am.

Hurricanes🌀:



We have hurricane season from June - November every year. The chances a hurricane will hit Florida during the hurricane season is essentially 100%. Preparing every year as if you will contend with a direct strike category 3 hurricane is a wise idea. There are essentials to staying alive and safe during this season. We are trying to compile the best list of shelters and evacuation routes as possible. We will link to official sources along with posting the information here.

https://ags3.scgov.net/knowyourlevel/

The most important part of hurricane preparedness is knowing if you should evacuate or shelter in place. The safest advice would be, if you don't feel you will be safe in your home during a hurricane, evacuate. The last thing you want is to be stuck on Interstate 75 when it makes landfall. You'll have at LEAST 3 days notice that a hurricane is coming. If where you're living falls in flood zones: A & B, evacuation as part of your hurricane preparedness. We would advise you to seek shelter with friends and family inland. If you moved here by yourself and don't know anyone, hurricane shelters are available. Keep in mind, hurricane shelters are LAST RESORT. Don't show up to a shelter until it's been announced it's been opened as well.

Newspapers

The biggest problem with newspapers and reading them is you don't know who they're owned by. There are four major newspapers in the area. Two newspapers are locally owned and two are out of state-owned. Three of the newspapers are owned by corporations and only one, Bradenton Times is owned by a private, local individual.

The difference is that Nazis never told the public that they planned kill Jews and others (mentally handicapped, physically handicapped, Catholic priests, Jehovahs witnesses, homosexuals, etc.)
Nazis seized power in 1933. Their message was one of nationalism, but they never said they wanted to murder people.
When the Allies liberated the Concentration camps, they made German citizens walk through the camps, and also watch film. The Germans were shocked. Even people living right next to the camps did not know that such horror was going on inside.
There is no reason that abortion should be legal. Standing by idly, and allowing others to murder is a very serious wrong. That is what Democrats do.
Nazis had to do their murdering in secret. Democrats have convinced people that mass murder, out it in the open, is acceptable.
The Democratic Party has accomplished evil that the Nazis never could.

"Euthanasia" Main article: Nazi euthanasia and the Catholic Church
The Blessed Clemens August Graf von Galen, Bishop of Münster spoke out against euthanasia in Nazi Germany.[96] From 1934, forced sterilisation of the hereditarily diseased had commenced in Germany. Based on eugenic theories, it proposed to cleanse the German nation of "unhealthy breeding stock" and was taken a step further in 1939, when the regime commenced its "euthanasia". This was the first of the regime's infamous series of mass extermination programs, which saw the Nazis attempt to eliminate "life unworthy of life" from Europe: first the handicapped, then Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, and others deemed "subnormal". Ultimately, the Jews suffered most in numerical terms, while Gypsies suffered the greatest proportional loss.
While the Nazi Final Solution liquidation of the Jews took place primarily on Polish territory, the murder of invalids took place on German soil, and involved interference in Catholic (and Protestant) welfare institutions. Awareness of the murderous programme therefore became widespread, and the Church leaders who opposed it – chiefly the Catholic Bishop of Münster, Clemens August von Galen and Dr Theophil Wurm, the Protestant Bishop of Württemberg – were therefore able to rouse widespread public opposition.[97] The intervention led to, in the words of Evans, "the strongest, most explicit and most widespread protest movement against any policy since the beginning of the Third Reich."[98]
From 1939, the regime began its program of euthanasia, under which those deemed "racially unfit" were to be "euthanased".[90] Hitler's order for the T4 Euthanasia Program was dated 1 September, the day Germany invaded Poland. The senile, the mentally handicapped and mentally ill, epileptics, cripples, children with Down's Syndrome and people with similar afflictions were all were to be killed.[91] The program ultimately involved the systematic murder of more than 70,000 people.[90] Among those murdered, a cousin of the young Joseph Ratzinger, future Pope Benedict XVI.[99]
The Papacy and German bishops had already protested against the Nazi sterilization of the "racially unfit". Catholic protests against the escalation of this policy into "euthanasia" began in the summer of 1940. Despite Nazi efforts to transfer hospitals to state control, large numbers of handicapped people were still under the care of the Churches. Caritas was the chief organisation running such care services for the Catholic Church. After Protestant welfare activists took a stand at the Bethel Hospital in August von Galen's diocese, Galen wrote to Bertram in July 1940 urging the Church take up a moral position. Bertram urged caution. Archbishop Conrad Groeber of Freiburg wrote to the head of the Reich Chancellery, and offered to pay all costs being incurred by the state for the "care of mentally people intended for death". Caritas directors sought urgent direction from the bishops, and the Fulda Bishops Conference sent a protest letter to the Reich Chancellery on 11 August, then sent Bishop Heinrich Wienken of Caritas to discuss the matter. Wienken cited the commandment "thous shalt not kill" to officials and warned them to halt the program or face public protest from the Church. Wienken subsequently wavered, fearing a firm line might jeopardise his efforts to have Catholic priests released from Dachau, but was urged to stand firm by Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber. The government refused to give a written undertaking to halt the program, and the Vatican declared on 2 December that the policy was contrary to natural and positive Divine law: "The direct killing of an innocent person because of mental or physical defects is not allowed".[100]
Bishop von Galen had the decree printed in his newspaper on 9 March 1941. Subsequent arrests of priests and seizure of Jesuit properties by the Gestapo in his home city of Munster, convinced Galen that the caution advised by his superior had become pointless. On 6, 13 and 20 July 1941, Galen spoke against the seizure of properties, and expulsions of nuns, monks and religious and criticised the euthanasia programme. In an attempt to cow Galen, the police raided his sister's convent, and detained her in the cellar. She escaped the confinement, and Galen, who had also received news of the imminent removal of further patients, launched his most audacious challenge on the regime in a 3 August sermon. As word of the program spread, protest grew, until finally, Bishop August von Galen delivered his famous 1941 sermons denouncing the program as "murder". He declared the murders to be illegal, and said that he had formally accused those responsible for murders in his diocese in a letter to the public prosecutor. The policy opened the way to the murder of all "unproductive people", like old horses or cows, including invalid war veterans: "Who can trust his doctor anymore?", he asked.
On 3 August 1941, in one of his series of denunciations, Galen declared:
"Thou shalt not kill." God engraved this commandment on the souls of men long before any penal code ... God has engraved these commandments in our hearts ... They are the unchangeable and fundamental truths of our social life ... Where in Germany and where, here, is obedience to the precepts of God? ... As for the first commandment, "Thou shalt not have strange gods before me," instead of the One, True, Eternal God, men have created at the dictates of their whim, their own gods to adore: Nature, the State, the Nation, or the Race.[101]
He declared, wrote Evans, that Catholics must "avoid those who blasphemed, attacked their religion, or brought about the death of innocent men and women. Otherwise they would become involved in their guilt".[102] Galen said that it was the duty of Christians to resist the taking of human life, even if it meant losing their own lives.[103] Thousands of copies of the sermons were circulated across Germany.
"The sensation created by the sermons", wrote Evans, "was enormous".[98] Kershaw characterised Von Galen's 1941 "open attack" on the government's euthanasia program as a "vigorous denunciation of Nazi inhumanity and barbarism".[72] According to Gill, "Galen used his condemnation of this appalling policy to draw wider conclusions about the nature of the Nazi state."[91] Galen had the sermons read in parish churches. The British broadcast excerpts over the BBC German service, dropped leaflets over Germany, and distributed the sermons in occupied countries.[98]
There were demonstrations across Catholic Germany – Hitler himself faced angry demonstrators at Nuremberg, the only time he was confronted with such resistance by ordinary Germans.[99] The regime did not halt the murders, but took the program underground.[13] Bishop Antonius Hilfrich of Limburg wrote to the Justice Minister, denouncing the murders. Bishop Albert Stohr of Mainz condemned the taking of life from the pulpit. Some of the priests who distributed the sermons were among those arrested and sent to the concentration camps amid the public reaction to the sermons.[98] The regional Nazi leader, and Hitler's deputy Martin Bormann called for Galen to be hanged, but Hitler and Goebbels urged a delay in retribution till war's end.[104] With the programme now public knowledge, nurses and staff (particularly in Catholics institutions), now increasingly seeking to obstruct implementation of the policy, Hitler ordered a halt to the killing of adults (though maintained the easier to conceal murder of children).[105] Following the war, Pope Pius XII hailed von Galen a hero and promoted him to Cardinal.[106]
In 1943, Pius issued the Mystici corporis Christi encyclical, in which he condemned the practice of killing the disabled. He stated his "profound grief at the murder of the deformed, the insane, and those suffering from hereditary disease ... as though they were a useless burden to Society", in condemnation of the ongoing Nazi euthanasia program. The Encyclical was followed, on 26 September 1943, by an open condemnation by the German Bishops which, from every German pulpit, denounced the killing of "innocent and defenceless mentally handicapped, incurably infirm and fatally wounded, innocent hostages, and disarmed prisoners of war and criminal offenders, people of a foreign race or descent".[107]
