Team Bombur!

Weta Digital has released a new video showing the animation process for Bombur’s awesome bouncing barrel sequence from ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.’

Weta Digital presents a peek inside the world of the animation team as they work out how to solve one of the most complicated shots in Peter Jackson’s film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. As part of an epic seven-minute action sequence, Bombur’s bouncing barrel shot required an elaborate approach. See how our animators suited up and used their own performances as part of the animation process.
