(above middle ) King Magni, ruler of the dwarves. I had the good fortune of lighting him in one of the few close up shots in the film. All that hair and beard required quite a bit of digital grooming.

Despite a somewhat lukewarm response to the film by critics and the box office I had great fun working on the show, and the visual effects are still stunning to behold.

This art book covers a very comprehensive making of the film, and I especially like the concept art pieces for the fantasy settings, all which are appropriately epic. Recommended.

truly was a gorgeous film to behold. outstanding cgi. storywise i thought there was some editing issues towards the end. in general i feel like theres a longer cut that should make the movie better. very nice concept art here
