Far over the Misty Mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old …
The pines were roaring on the heights,
The wind was moaning in the night,
The fire was red, it flaming spread,
The trees like torches blazed with light.
“I did a lot of Fili concepts. Given he was a young, handsome Dwarf, we couldn’t do much to change his face. We looked at all kinds of variations of hair and beard, plaits and decoration, very intricate to begin with but becoming simpler as we went along.”
- Gus Hunter, Weta Workshop Designer, on Fili’s hair and make-up
