01:52:23,378 --> 01:52:28,691
You have the sensation you're looking
1 00s and 1 00s of feet into the air.

101
01:52:36,978 --> 01:52:43,053
Now with Orthanc, we wanted to capture
the original painting of Alan Lee.

102
01:52:43,218 --> 01:52:48,167
He illustrated very much the feeling
that this was a tower...

103
01:52:48,338 --> 01:52:51,569
...that had been chipped
out of black obsidian.

104
01:52:51,738 --> 01:52:54,855
The way we captured
the look of black obsidian...

105
01:52:55,018 --> 01:52:58,772
...was by carving it
out of microcrystalline wax.

106
01:52:59,018 --> 01:53:01,930
We carved every element,
then assembled it...

107
01:53:02,138 --> 01:53:06,097
...using hot waxes to melt
all the elements together.

108
01:53:06,298 --> 01:53:10,086
And then we took a massive silicon
mold, a huge matrix mold...

109
01:53:10,258 --> 01:53:16,333
...of this whole structure and then
replicated it in encapsulating resin.

110
01:53:16,498 --> 01:53:20,491
lt's designed so that you can
come up to it really close.

111
01:53:20,658 --> 01:53:23,092
Now, we get into
hyperdetailing here.

112
01:53:23,298 --> 01:53:28,213
We were gonna do a shot of the stairs
with Christopher Lee walking down it.

113
01:53:28,378 --> 01:53:31,529
Every step was carved
with great precision...

114
01:53:31,738 --> 01:53:34,571
...and every little edge
was sharpened...

115
01:53:34,738 --> 01:53:39,937
...so when we get in that microscopic
magnification, it would still stand up.

116
01:53:40,138 --> 01:53:41,366
My old friend.

117
01:53:42,498 --> 01:53:45,331
Sweeping in on Orthanc
with Gandalf on the tower...

118
01:53:45,538 --> 01:53:50,168
...that lasts over a minute long,
which is another special effects rule:

119
01:53:50,338 --> 01:53:54,536
Keep the shot short so people
don't know that they're fake.

120
01:53:54,698 --> 01:53:58,532
Our miniatures were so big and
impressive that they stood up...

121
01:53:58,698 --> 01:54:01,132
...to a minute-long shot,
no problem.

122
01:54:01,298 --> 01:54:06,656
lt's built at 35th scale to sit in
amongst this huge miniature we built...

123
01:54:06,818 --> 01:54:08,809
...the size of a rugby field.

124
01:54:08,978 --> 01:54:12,937
The Ring of lsengard was 60 feet
in diameter. lt's 35th scale.

125
01:54:13,138 --> 01:54:16,414
lf you multiply that,
it's almost a mile in diameter.

126
01:54:16,578 --> 01:54:20,696
So it's representing something
that's absolutely enormous.

127
01:54:20,898 --> 01:54:25,369
The Ring and the tower are miniatures
and the sky is a matte painting.

128
01:54:25,538 --> 01:54:29,690
That's one of our classic hybrid
shots where it reads. You say:

129
01:54:29,858 --> 01:54:33,168
''Wow! Look at that!''
But it's built out of pieces.

130
01:54:33,378 --> 01:54:35,494
You put things together
to make it work.

131
01:54:35,658 --> 01:54:41,369
Twenty-four mineshafts were built
into the surface of the miniature.

132
01:54:41,538 --> 01:54:46,293
There was over 1 000 pieces of
individually modeled architecture...

133
01:54:46,458 --> 01:54:48,528
...that made up the componentry...

134
01:54:48,698 --> 01:54:51,974
...of the mine workings
throughout this miniature.

135
01:54:52,138 --> 01:54:56,256
They were just urethane pits
we had carved out of this foam...

136
01:54:56,458 --> 01:54:59,530
...and put stuff in there.
Then it's come to life.

137
01:54:59,738 --> 01:55:03,936
lt's moving and it's smoking
and it's seething with life.

138
01:55:04,098 --> 01:55:06,487
That was brilliant.

139
01:55:08,058 --> 01:55:12,893
The crow-hole shot, where the
crows come and report to Saruman...

140
01:55:13,058 --> 01:55:15,811
...we needed a hole for them
to dive into...

141
01:55:15,978 --> 01:55:18,776
...a first cavern for them
to fly through...

142
01:55:18,938 --> 01:55:21,247
...a second cavern
and another cavern...

143
01:55:21,458 --> 01:55:25,053
...which would be the live-action plate
at the end.

144
01:55:25,258 --> 01:55:29,251
So this is one continuous shot,
shot in five separate pieces.

145
01:55:29,458 --> 01:55:31,210
We had a week and a half.

146
01:55:31,378 --> 01:55:35,496
But it was a treat. lt's very exciting,
and Peter just said:

147
01:55:35,658 --> 01:55:39,651
''Make it cool. Make it look like an
ant farm.'' That's what we did.

148
01:55:48,498 --> 01:55:52,457
John Howe's illustration strongly
inspired the Argonaths.

149
01:55:52,658 --> 01:55:56,856
He played a great part in the art
direction of these characters.

150
01:55:57,058 --> 01:55:59,413
lt's funny standing amongst them.

151
01:55:59,578 --> 01:56:03,776
Since you're not at the eye height
of the Hobbits in the boats...

152
01:56:03,938 --> 01:56:05,929
...it looks very miniature-like.

153
01:56:06,138 --> 01:56:11,292
But when it's lit by Alex Funke
and his team on the miniatures stage...

154
01:56:11,498 --> 01:56:14,376
...and the correct digital
surroundings...

155
01:56:14,778 --> 01:56:20,330
...tall Grandia sitting amongst the falls,
the sky and landscape placed in...

156
01:56:20,498 --> 01:56:23,251
...a miniature like this
can come to life.

157
01:56:23,418 --> 01:56:26,728
l love the Argonaths.
They were at 1 /60 scale.

158
01:56:26,898 --> 01:56:29,048
They stand about eight feet tall...

159
01:56:29,218 --> 01:56:34,133
...and they were sculpted out of
urethane foam, which is a rigid foam.

160
01:56:34,298 --> 01:56:38,291
There you are. lnstant aging.

161
01:56:38,778 --> 01:56:42,248
This is a top-secret process,
developed over a million years...

162
01:56:42,418 --> 01:56:46,297
...by cavemen and model-makers alike.

163
01:56:47,818 --> 01:56:51,333
l won't knock that front piece off--
l need to think about that.

164
01:56:51,498 --> 01:56:57,050
l've got to knock a piece off the nose,
and l know the wrong bit will fall off.

165
01:56:57,218 --> 01:57:00,688
l'm gonna make Alan Lee
knock the piece off the nose.

166
01:57:00,858 --> 01:57:05,807
The trick with a scale model is not
to overdo it. You've got to be subtle.

167
01:57:05,978 --> 01:57:10,130
You can't go whacking into things
and getting too carried away.

168
01:57:10,418 --> 01:57:15,617
The concept behind them is that they're
carved out of the river's cliff faces.

169
01:57:15,818 --> 01:57:20,812
But we theorize that probably there
wasn't the necessary rock...

170
01:57:20,978 --> 01:57:23,128
...to carve the whole figure.

171
01:57:23,298 --> 01:57:28,691
So, what we're saying is that they were
able to carve to about this level...

172
01:57:29,098 --> 01:57:34,047
...but then had to construct
this massive quarry to mine the rock...

173
01:57:34,218 --> 01:57:39,372
...lifting with massive lifting
equipment up onto the upper surfaces...

174
01:57:39,538 --> 01:57:43,497
...of these huge, 300-foot tall
sculptures...

175
01:57:43,818 --> 01:57:49,211
...to place in place these huge granite
blocks into which they could carve...

176
01:57:49,418 --> 01:57:52,967
...and create the final look
of the characters.

177
01:57:53,138 --> 01:57:56,210
How they did it? l don't know.
Would've been great scaffolding.

178
01:57:56,378 --> 01:57:58,608
lt would've been great
to do a retro model...

179
01:57:58,778 --> 01:58:01,451
...to show the construction
of the Argonaths.

180
01:58:01,618 --> 01:58:05,133
l think it would eclipse the pyramids.
But anyway....

181
01:58:05,298 --> 01:58:09,769
We had to think it through and make
it look like that's what they did.

182
01:58:22,738 --> 01:58:25,855
We had Alan Lee drawings.
They were fantastic.

183
01:58:26,018 --> 01:58:30,216
There were lots of sketches
showing different areas of it.

184
01:58:30,418 --> 01:58:34,730
lt was like a city that had fallen
down into the volcanic pit.

185
01:58:34,938 --> 01:58:41,286
This miniature particularly was
very complex and very large to build.

186
01:58:41,458 --> 01:58:46,054
lt came apart in eight or nine pieces
so we could get them out...

187
01:58:46,258 --> 01:58:49,375
...and down the road
to the shooting stage.

188
01:58:49,538 --> 01:58:55,886
The camera had to be able to film
within two inches of the surface.

189
01:58:56,058 --> 01:59:00,688
So therefore, the whole miniature had
to be done at macrodetail.

190
01:59:00,858 --> 01:59:03,816
The Khazad-dûm stair scene
where they run...

191
01:59:03,978 --> 01:59:07,015
...and have to jump over the hole
in the stairs...

192
01:59:07,178 --> 01:59:12,093
...they are miniature environments
that l use shot after shot after shot.

193
01:59:12,258 --> 01:59:17,935
lt's a three-minute section that is
filmed continuously inside this model.

194
01:59:18,098 --> 01:59:22,171
Virtually no set was built.
There's a tiny piece...

195
01:59:22,338 --> 01:59:23,896
...for a few close-ups.

196
01:59:24,058 --> 01:59:27,653
The rest was shot against blue screens
using the miniature as the background.

197
01:59:27,858 --> 01:59:32,409
Here we are in the great hall of Moria,
one of the Dwarves' strongholds.

198
01:59:32,578 --> 01:59:36,491
lt lies between the stairs of Khazad-dûm
and the bridge of Khazad-dûm.

199
01:59:36,658 --> 01:59:38,250
Come on!
