Ep 65: “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”

January 09, 2019

We journey into JRR Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” and discuss:

  • cinematography;
  • adapting a novel;
  • Wes’s favorite edit in the movie;
  • we are joined by Joe Howes, actor, aerial drone filmmaker, VFX artist, WETA Digital programmer, and resident Lord of the Rings expert encyclopaedia;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

There is a dark side in all of us. And for us ‘bad’ people, the bad side dominates. I think there is a great sadness in villains, and I have tried to put that across. We cannot stop ourselves doing what we are doing. – Christopher Lee
