Hello, everyone! During the production of The Hobbit trilogy, Peter Jackson and Company have been kind enough to put together a series of production diaries. These diaries cover various aspects of the films' production, beginning with pre-production and design work and the start of filming and moving on into post-production.

As of January 2013, nine diaries have been released, all covering primarily the production and release of An Unexpected Journey, the first film. These have been a lot of fun to watch, and hopefully there will be many more!

The Hobbit Production Diary #1 - Early pre-production and the lead-up to filming.
The Hobbit Production Diary #2 - Completion of the first block of filming and some location scouting.
The Hobbit Production Diary #3 - The cast and crew reminisce about the first block of filming.
The Hobbit Production Diary #4 - Designing the films for--and filming them in--3D and 48 FPS.
The Hobbit Production Diary #5 - The logistics of filming on location, and the return to Hobbiton.
The Hobbit Production Diary #6 - More location filming as the production crisscrosses New Zealand.
The Hobbit Production Diary #7 - Filming at the studio in Wellington.
The Hobbit Production Diary #8 - The Hobbit goes to Comic-Con, and the final days of filming.
The Hobbit Production Diary #9 - Post-production and the mad rush to complete An Unexpected Journey.

Thanks, this is a good idea.

Great to see Christopher Lee at the very end of the 3rd Diary video.

Someone please tell me; Is this like the commentaries on the LotR DVD's?
If so, I'll pass []

I kinda forgot to keep up with these, sorry about that. [] But I've gone ahead and added links to all nine production diaries released thus far (the ninth covering post-production for AUJ). Enjoy!

I think this question needs to be asked again. []

It really doesn't, if you understand the source from which it came.

The diaries are more of a glimpse at what went into making the movies, with a camera following Jackson and Company around. Not commentaries.
