1999 LOTR CONCEPTS
The first concept work done on film for the LOTR trilogy, created for promotional purposes before the main shoot started. These used elements shot on film and scanned at a local print house (Weta’s scanner was 8 bit and comparatively lores at that time.) The comps were all done in EDDIE, one of, if not THE, first node-based compositing package created by Animal Logic. And even though I love the latest NUKE, EDDIE still had a better node view. (icons that visually represent their function; isn’t that the whole idea, FOUNDRY?)
