Scott is getting ready for TubaChristmas Los Angeles, coming December 16th! With performances also happening all over the country. But he's also here to talk about the Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which will be playing in six different formats across the country, including 3D HFR (High Frame Rate). But the best will be in theaters that have Dolby Atmos.
Shot at 48 frames per second (known as high frame rate - HFR), Peter Jackson's Tolkein epic "The Hobbit: An Unexpected journey comes to theaters next week. Jackson shot at 48p in order to create the sharpest possible image to help the audience get immersed into the story. There's been some resistance because people say it doesn't look "film like," (or shot at 24 fps). But Scott says it'll look fabulous. Detailed. Crisp and clear. But the problem is, it starts looking less like film and more like video.
