Behind the 'Ring' movie trilogy

Author: JT Smith

From a Film & Video article on the making of The Lord of the Rings film trilogy: "The first film, The Fellowship of the Ring, was scheduled to be delivered to New Line Cinema, Oct. 1 for a Dec. 19 release date. The Two Towers is scheduled for a December 2002 release, and the finale, The Return of the King will come out in December 2003.

By the end of the third film, a renderfarm of 192 SGI 1200 and 1100 series dual processor Linux servers will have chugged away 24 hours per day, seven days a week processing frames for several years."
