The Hobbit Filming at 48fps

Lord of the Rings

An anonymous reader writes “Peter Jackson has announced via his Facebook page that The Hobbit is being shot at 48 frames per second, ameliorating the ’3D headaches’ that many viewers have complained of in the last few boom-years for the format. Film has been shot and projected at 24fps since the 1920s, with the exception of Douglas Trumbull’s 60fps ‘ShowScan’ format, used for the Universal Back To The Future ride, amongst others. Jackson himself predicts that the widespread adoption of 48fps workflow could not only improve the 3D but also the general cinematic experience, though it may earn itself some backward-looking critics. But until digital principal photography completely usurps celluloid, this may be good news for Kodak, who now have even more reason to lament the death of Stanley Kubrick.”
