December 7, 2012, 2:59 pmThe latest Peter Jackson film opens next week and people are getting really excited. Not only because The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be a great story and tribute to Tolkien, but because it's filmed at 48 frames per second. Don't know what that is? I didn't either. Currently, movies are shot at 24 frames per second. So this new format is double that. Rudyard Coltman, the owner of Cinetopia, tells me the format is a lot more clear and lifelike. He used an example of a demonstration he saw once of a horse running. He says in 24 frames per second, the horse's mane and tail just looked like a blob. But in 48 frames per second, he says you can see every single hair follicle. He eventually expects all movies to be filmed in this manner.
