On the Trail of the Uruk-hai

Back to Scene-by-Scene contents

<< The Banishment of Éomer

Peter: [On the Trail of the Uruk-hai] Barrie Osborne, our producer, was actually the second unit director that shot a lot of these chase scenes. He spent a few days with the big, you know, Uruk crowd down on the South Island in a helicopter doing some of this stuff. And then I did little inserts like this [screen cap], so anything where we’re close on the actors would be me, and then anything wide like this shot here [screen cap] would be the second unit – it’s sort of how we broke up the responsibilities in some of these scenes.

Fran: [Legolas: “They runs as if the very whips…”] Yes, good old Orlando. He managed to get that…

Philippa: Terrible line off the page.

Fran: He did. He crowbarred it up! [Philippa and Peter laugh] “They run as if the very whips of their masters were behind them.”

Peter: All with a broken rib, too.

Fran: And – yeah – on the move. It was quite a hard piece of ADR.

Philippa: He’s a great actor, that young boy.
