The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power – Exclusive Behind The Scenes (2022)
If you have seen the new title reveal for the upcoming Lord of the Rings series, you might have assumed it was all cgi. This behind the scene look from IGN shows its actually a real life practical effect! Will the series carry through a reliance on practical effects?
Take a behind-the-scenes look of how Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power title reveal video was made.
The title sequence of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power was not a CGI creation but rather achieved practically at a foundry using molten metals, reclaimed redwood, sparkler dust, argon pours, liquid hydrogen and more. Multiple pours of molten metal were shot with the Phantom Flex 4K camera until the creators got the exact effect they were looking for. The series will premiere on September 2, 2022, on Prime Video.
