That could very well be it Liberty Hoffman. I must confess that I've only watched the film once (all the way through from start to finish) and that I'm now in the habit of putting the DVD in my player and skipping through it to watch my favourite scenes. I'll watch that scene again though. It will probably look different the second time around as I always find I notice details that I didn't notice before.

Hm...I always assumed that originally in that scene Glozelle lied to Miraz saying that no one had died. When Miraz replies with "How do you explain your injuries?" Glozelle realizes that he has been caught lying, so he must admit that three of his men died.

Miraz says how many men did you lose and then his eyes flick towards the three men standing behind Glozelle. Glozelle then looks back at them and back at Miraz and says three taking his sword back from Miraz. He then turns as Miraz rides away towards the three men raising his sword.

Miraz told him to kill the three men for not guarding the supplies. He was threatening him saying either them or you. That is what happened in that scene.

my mom was thinking that Miraz saying, "How do you explain your inguries" was him basically telling Glozelle to kill his men.....

Hey, I do have a question about LWW: In the waterfall scene, where the Pevensies have to cross the river: the wolves come, they get stuck out in the middle, the waterfall breaks, and they all get washed away. Everyone knows that. Here's the question: when the Pevensies get out of the river, the current is flowing to the right. That means they never crossed the river. Right or wrong?
Logic behind this: (if facing the waterfall straight on, current coming toward you) the Pevensies come in from the left. That means facing on the left of the waterfall (where the Pevensies came in at), the current of the river would be going right. And when the Pevensies get out of the water, the current is still going right. That means, they never crossed.
Am I wrong, or did I just see it wrong? Sorry, I know it's sounds complicated. I can't explain things well...
Thanks!

I think the river is flowing to the left. They sort of show the beavers pushing them over to the side and it seems to be across the river and not back to the bank they were on.

I think they come out on the correct side. They cross to the right hand side if your facing the waterfall, and after they get on shore they are on the righthand side. This is still facing the waterfall, since that is the way it flows, and its also supported from the fact that Lucy walks toward them, (and presumably toward the waterfall)

Would there be another movie after Prince Caspian? I really enjoy both Narnia and Prince Caspian.

Yes. They are making the third book into a film as we speak. It is called The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Can anyone explain to me what "Pick-ups" are? As in "They are currently filming pick-ups..." I've never followed a movie before VDT and while I have seen/heard the word before in interviews, etc, I don't exactly know what it means. I assume that it is some kind of short, individual shot for the movie?

And you'd be right :)

Here is what the wikipedia entry has to say:

A pick-up is a term used in filmmaking to refer to small, relatively minor shots filmed or recorded after the fact to augment footage already shot. When entire scenes are redone, it is referred to as a re-shoot.

Thanks, Icarus, for helping me out. :)

So do they just shoot green-screen and add the background digitally after or do they actually have small-scale sets for shooting these pick-ups in? What I mean is, if they have to film a pick-up for a scene in, say, Coriakin's house, would they actually have a set for that there? That could be kind of... well, a lot of additional work, at least!

Adeona asks:

It depends. Sometimes, after seeing footage of a completed scene, the production team might decide that a few close-up shots are required, sometimes a director might decide that additional dialogue must be added, filmed and inserted. Sometimes previous sets are available as a backdrop, sometimes they need to be remade; sometimes a generic sky will suffice as a background, and sometimes digital trickery must be employed.
If you look at some of “The Lord of the Rings” documentaries available on the DVDs you’ll see good accounts of how Peter Jackson used old sets, new sets or green screens to do pick-ups, particularly for the extended versions.

Sometimes, of course, pick-ups don’t fit as neatly as they might. In in the extended version of “The Return of the King”, for instance, it is particularly noticeable that Eowyn’s hair is quite disordered as she fights but suddenly neat when she is with the dying Theoden, and Legolas has brown eyes in some added scenes because Orlando Bloom forgot to wear his blue contacts.

4 symbols on the thrones at Cair Paravel?

Postby lullaby2rocknroll » Feb 06, 2010 10:08 pm

In the movie The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, there are symbols on the four thrones at Cair Paravel. Susan's symbol is the magic horn, Peter's symbol is a sword (I believe, correct me if I'm wrong), and Lucy's symbol is the flask of fireflower juice. These are the gifts that Father Christmas gave them earlier in the movie. But since Edmund was not present on this occassion, he did not receive a gift. I can't figure out what his symbol is in the movie, although I have tried more than once to identify it... my guess would be a bow and arrow based on the shape of the carving on his throne, although that seems more befitting of Susan. I was just wondering if anyone knows... what is the symbol on Edmund's throne?

In case you were want to see the symbols yourself, this scene occurs at 02:06:05 on the DVD.
