"Hobbit" Filming Wraps

Filming on the final installment of Peter Jackson's "Hobbit" films drew to a close this past Friday, and the director, who has kept fans updated via Facebook statuses and YouTube videos throughout the filmmaking process, found the time to post numerous updates and behind the scenes photos during the last day of filming:

"Ever since starting these blogs, there's been something I thought I'd like to try one day (as well as answering the other 19 questions I owe you!)—blogging throughout a shoot day in real time," he wrote. "Try to give you all a feeling for what we deal with on an average day."

"A 20 hour day…15 years of Tolkien…771 days of shooting…And we arrive home exhausted, to a house full of teenagers! It's going to be a long night!"

"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" will be in theatres December 13, 2013; the final instalment, "The Hobbit: There and Back Again," will be released in December 17, 2014.
