Peter Jackson

An audience of experts marveled at clip screening for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug at the IBC Awards. Peter Jackson stunned the audience at the 2013 International Broadcasting Convention Awards, when he presented a clip from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) in 3D and 48 frames per second rate.

Having received the IBC award and the recently accepted International Honor of Excellence, Jackson is officially recognized as a rare, vital, and historically important contributor to the technicality in film alongside great film-makers like James Cameron and David Attenborough. The Academy Award winning director received the award for the boldness of his vision in establishing the 48 frames per second rate in his Hobbit films and of course for his past cinematic triumphs.

The success of the preview of the second installment in The Hobbit trilogy was positive for two other reasons. Firstly, it was a great improvement over the preview for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which received mixed reviews at best. Secondly, it seems we are about to see another visual masterpiece from Jackson. The cast will be backed up by the talents of Orlando Bloom as Legolas and Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug so The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has better chances than its predecessor to come close to the greatness of The Lord of the Rings.

There has been a lot of criticism regarding the 48 frames per second technology and those who weren’t able to get used to it attacked Jackson’s first Hobbit film with their reviews. It was something Jackson was totally prepared for and was the price he was willing to pay in order for people to be introduced to a cinematic innovation. Now, one year later, with the preview of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug arrived, it seems that Peter Jackson’s newest contribution to the art of film has finally been appreciated in full. Jackson has always fought battles in the greatest moments of his directing career. He went through major development struggles for The Hobbit. The establishment of the 48 frames-per-second rate is yet another difficult fight from which he emerges victorious. Apparently, this is the difficult path of a genius working in the movie industry.
