'The Hobbit' at 48 FPS Looks Spectacular and Invites the Audience to Linger

Publish date:

Russ Fischer of SlashFilm speaks out in favor of The Hobbit's high frame rate and Peter Jackson's gutsiness. He writes, "Consider the challenge of using a technology such as HFR in a setting where there are so many possible shortcuts to reveal. Every character in the film features heavy makeup or prosthetics. Many wear outlandish beards; all are draped in wardrobe manufactured from whole cloth, leather and metal. They wield weapons that can’t look real, because they often aren’t. Every part of every frame is full of raw-built materials, but I don’t see something that looks 'fake.' I see a deep display of craft, of which and prop and costume departments would be jealous."
