“The Hobbit could not have been made without Mistika”
Under Peter Jackson’s direction, “The Hobbit” trilogy was produced using Mistika’s leading innovative technology in Stereo 3D at 48fps, in the world-first HFR production.
With all the rushes through to the colour grade and final deliverables completed on Mistika, SGO values its customers’ feedback on it, which is ever-evolving, as is the SGO team’s on-going development.
Mistika now forms the nucleus of many post company’s 2D and Stereo 3D infrastructures, placing Mistika firmly at the very heart of key productions.
About The Hobbit: The three films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, who gets caught up in an heroic pursuit to repossess the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was conquered by the dragon Smaug. The wizard Gandalf the Grey, approaches Bilbo, where he finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey takes them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with fairy-tale creatures, Goblins, Orcs, deadly Wargs, Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain, but first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets Gollum, who changes his life forever. On the shores of an underground lake with Gollum, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprises him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities. A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo does not fully comprehend.
Trilogy Release Dates: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be officially released on 14th December 2012, with the second film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, releasing on 13th December 2013, with the third The Hobbit: There and Back Again due for release 18th July 2014.
