Producer's Journal

November 28

Filming proceeds apace on the Isengard scenes, Weathertop is coming along, and our computer department is hard at work with the special effects. I'm really pleased with our Uruk-Hai actors - naturals for the part. Bill the Pony is holding things up slightly - we can't start filming with him until the representative from the SPCP arrives to make sure everything done in a suitably safe manner.

The Uruk-Hai have been cast! The auditions wowed us - these actors really get into the part, not even needing any makeup to terrify. They are truly horrific - the smell, the dead color of their flesh - utterly believable as a ruined and terrible species. There should be plenty of screams when these villains come on screen!
