There was a huge thunderstorm over Berlin this morning, between 12:00 and 5:00 am. So I grabbed my 7D, my tripod and my Macbook and took some photographs of the Lightnings that showed up in front of my living room window. The results are the following 8 Pictures:

So yesterday we went to the world premiere of Iron Sky at Berlinale 2012. The screening took place in the Friedrichstadtpalast. We arrived at around 5:30. Half an hour before the screening began. The main hall was crowded with many many people who wanted to see the movie. After we sat down, we had to wait some minutes. Then cast and crew arrived (they stood only 2.5 meters away from me ) and the movie started after a short speech of Timo Vuorensola (director of Iron Sky). View full article »
Watch it now on Peter Jacksons Facebook site.

Peter Jackson shoots The Hobbit at 48 frames per second.
Here’s what he said:
”We are indeed shooting at the higher frame rate. The key thing to understand is that this process requires both shooting and projecting at 48 fps, rather than the usual 24 fps… So the result looks like normal speed, but the image has hugely enhanced clarity and smoothness.
Looking at 24 frames every second may seem ok… but there is often quite a lot of blur in each frame, during fast movements, and if the camera is moving around quickly, the image can judder or strobe. Shooting and projecting at 48 fps does a lot to get rid of these issues. It looks much more lifelike, and it is much easier to watch, especially in 3-D.”
It’s out! Andy Serkis who fabulous played Gollum in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the rings trilogy will serve as Second Unit Director in the production of The Hobbit. Andy Serkis will also be reprising his role as Gollum in the current production by Peter Jackson.
“I think I understand Peter’s sensibility and we have a common history of understanding Middle Earth,” Serkis told The Hollywood Reporter. “A lot of the crew from The Lord of the Rings was returning to work on The Hobbit. There is really a sense of Peter wanting people around him who totally understand the material and the work ethic.”
