SPOILER Week 1, Days 2-3: Beren's Adventures on the LOTR Blue Screen Set - Company of the Ring: Tol Galen

Beren, webmaster of Company of the Ring: Tol Galen, landed himself a six-week job working on the blue screen unit during the final phase of Lord of the Rings principle photography.

Here is an excerpt of his report about Days Two and Three on the job:

"This one was Frodo and Sam heading underground, part of the scene had been filmed already and these two characters had to be added in. They walked through the entrance and had a path to walk to enter some tunnels. They had to be shrunk down to fit in with the rest of it hence them being filmed on a separate pass. After a quick rehearsal this was filmed in a few takes and that was it for the day. We were meant to do a Sam underwater shot but that didn't happen on this day."
