How the barrel scene was created for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Perhaps the most memorable scene in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was when Bilbo and the dwarves escape Thranduil's Mirkwood kingdom in empty wine barrels. Well today I found a video by Wired which looks at some of the things that went into creating that scene. I didn't think there was much CGI in the scene so it's amazing to see how much of it there actually was. It's also amazing to see how much of the scene wasn't CGI as Peter Jackson spent a lot of time filming in the white water rapids of New Zealand. This is definitely a feature that you'll want to check out. The video is below.
