Internal Control Photography Legolas Part 1
Featured here is a set of turn around shots used for control art purposes.
Such photography and reference materials were sent from New Line Cinema, and taken in New Zealand during the production stage of the film.
The actors (or sometimes stand-ins), would be directed to pose in many ways, in order to get as much detail on their likeness a possible.
The artists working in or with Toy Biz would then use these to create the action figure turn around / control art. This reference material would also be used by sculptors and management to ensure quality.
