Video: Hobbit stars reveal how they'll spend their summer vacation

Peter Jackson has released his second production video from the set of The Hobbit, but it's not the work diary we've seen in the first production video: This one is a more intimate look at the Hobbit Whisperer and his crew.

The production video gives us a roundup of Jackson's peeps and how they're spending their much-needed break during the shoots of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again. (Best line, via Conan Stevens, who plays Azog the Orc: "I'm looking forward to getting on the drink. I'm not going to get a bad reputation, because they already know what I'm like.")

But while most of the crew are visiting family or relaxing on a beach, PJ is hard at work. Instead of sleeping in late, he's working on different aspects of production, preproduction and post-production, all at the same time.

We also get to see Andy Serkis in action, not just as Gollum but as a second-unit director in his own right. We figure that now there are no more Gollum-related projects left, Serkis is expanding his career options.
