Behind the Scenes of The Hobbit Post-Production

Readying a film for theatrical release is a lengthy process that involves completing special and visual effects, editing scenes together, and even creating sequences from scratch—so it’s no surprise that the process often goes down to the wire. With The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Peter Jackson and his crew are taking that to the extreme: If all goes according to plan, this first installment of a planned trilogy will be finished a mere two days before its premiere. In the video below, Jackson takes audiences behind the scenes of the post-production process. It looks stressful.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters December 14.
