Hi all,

With less than eleven weeks to go until its release, post production is ploughing ahead on Peter Jackson's remake of King Kong.

If you go here: http://www.kongisking.net/kong2005/proddiary/ there are loads of weekly post production diaries that make for quite interesting viewing. Whether you like the idea of a new King Kong movie or not, these diary clips seem to cover most parts of the production. Obviously due to the short running time they don't cover things in great detail but there's enough to whet your appetite. Of personal interest most recently was the colour grading clip (12 weeks to go I think) which showed them using a rather tasty system called Lustre by Discreet to do some major digital re-colouring. By the look and feel it's obviously based on the same code as Inferno and is therefore very expensive!

All the best,

Christian
