The Two Towers

Well, I've FINALLY finished watching all the extras on my Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers extended dvd. After watching all the behind the scenes footage, I've decided that working on that movie must have been the best job ever, whether you were an actor or a stunt person or a cameraman. Some of the most interesting stuff (aside from all the awesome Gollum special effects) was watching thow he sound designers recorded and created every little sound detail for the movie. I never knew that every footstep, rustling jacket or sword clash had to be recorded separately and mixed in later. The best part was seeing how the sound of a cheese grater being swung around on a string was manipulated into being the sound for the tail of the winged Nazgul. Some people have entirely too much fun with their jobs.
