TRON: Uprising - Elijah Wood
Elijah Wood talking about 'The Hobbit' at the Los Angeles TRON: Uprising press conference

We are at the Disney/Toon Studios in Grendale, Los Angeles at a press event a few days ago (May 12, 2012)… Elijah Wood was doing an interview with Judy Sloane about Disney XD’s TRON: Uprising, which will be in a separate feature later, when she asked him about The Hobbit, and here’s what he said…

We should explain that Judy was recording the event and doing the interview herself and has done an amazing job. However the video was rather jerky. With modern technology we have reframed the shot of Elijah and kept him fixed in shot and let the framing move around! You just have to see it, it gives it an interesting feel! We have reprocessed the video and now the jerky bits just result in slight blurring of the picture and the picture quality is much improved. Isn’t technology amazing!
