Movie Minute: The Hobbit

If you are a huge elaborate fantasy buff or just an avid movie fan, chances are you have your eyes set on Peter Jackson’s new film – the Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The Hobbit is an exploration of the adventures of Bilbo Baggins before he gets possesion of “the ring” and the stories of the friends he meets along the way. Some friends like Gandalf you will already know, others will be new unless you have read the books. Besides looking like another fantastically epic cinematic master piece from director Jackson, this film also to be ground breaking in another real way as it is shot in a new format – the Hobbit will be viewed and shown in theaters at 48 frames per second, that is twice the standard of 24 frames per second for anyone who does not know. This is the first film to be shot and shown at this higher frame rate as new technologies in digital videography have finally made the higher frame rate a possibility. So what’s so great about this higher frame rate you may ask, well the answer lies in the motion of the video. At the higher frame rate, motion or movement of the characters on the movie screen will appear more fluid and smooth – there will be less blur on the screen. Watching a movie at the higher frame rate will indeed take some getting used to as our eyes will have to compensate and  adjust – Peter Jackson thinks that this is the way of the future for movies and is very excited about the new experience brings to the audience – we think it will add a new dimension to the cinematic experience.

The Hobbit hits theaters on December 14th.
