Okay, here's one that I find interesting (hopefully you will too):

Prior to The Fellowship of the Rings, most movies had only parts or certain scenes digitally graded (adjusting colors, contrast etc. using computers). According to Peter Jackson (and he should know!), what percentage of Fellowship was adjusted digitally?

Well, two of you are very close and equally close so I'm going to have to require the exact percentage.

Sorry paavo and wilwarin...not that obvious I guess

Lindir's got the right idea...think, would Peter Jackson say "47.23% of the movie was digitally graded"? No! Also, check out the extras on the FotR DVD EE for the answer.

Phew!! symestreem got it. I think it's pretty remarkable that they went over 70% of the movie, tweaking and adjusting it. For any of you who work on computers, especially with Photoshop or something, you can just imagine how much work that is! Just another example of how awesome PJ and the gang were!

Over to you symestreem!

I'll say:
-gave him a spiky nose
-thickened one eyelid to make his face lopsided
-gave him slightly clouded contact lenses
-painted his face white with a bluish tinge
-air-brushed veins onto his face
-shaved his eyebrows
-gave him "weeping pustules"
-gave him dandruff and a greasy, patchy wig of straggly hair (not on his face but what the heck)

According to Ngila Dickson, Costume Designer, how many meters of cloth did each Black Rider costume take to make?
