Behind the Scenes of The Hobbit's Special Effects´╗┐

Weta Digital (Peter Jackson's special effects company) yesterday released a great video showing some glimpses of what filming looked like versus what the final film resulted in.  Pretty stuninng shots... I especially like the first scene that shows what Ian McKellen had to endure as he acted "with" the dwarves.

I've also included some screenshots of my favorite moments from the video below...
