HarperCollins 234914 Australia 2006 0732279623 / 9780732279622 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition A unique and personal account of the six-year quest to film the Lord of the Rings, with revealing insights into the award-winning director's life and films, including the forthcoming King Kong. this authorised biography of Peter Jackson tells the inside story of how a New Zealander became Hollywood's hottest property - from early schlock horror and puppet films, through Oscar-winning success with Heavenly Creatures, an abandoned King Kong remake, to the making of the Lord of the Rings - ditched two years into pre-production, rejected by most studios, then picked up by New Line Cinema in the biggest gamble in film history. Jackson tells how he managed to achieve the almost impossible: filming three movies back-to-back with a cast of thousands. He reveals the highs and lows, from over-zealous script doctors and accountants to on-set tantrums and disastrous early screenings. this illustrated book also gives a unique insight into the filming of King Kong, Jackson's lifelong dream project, for which he finally secured one of the most lucrative deals for any film director ever. 578 pages.

HarperCollins 234223 Great Britain 2002 0007135637 / 9780007135639 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Very Good Condition Alan Lee, the beloved illustrator of many of Houghton Mifflin's Tolkien editions, and a talented team of other artists, including the renowned Tolkien illustrator John Howe, have spent more than three years creating the sets, props, creatures, and locations that truly bring Tolkien's Middle-earth to life. Hobbiton, Rivendell, and Minas Tirith are no longer designations on the map. Literally hundreds of designers and craftspeople have been painstakingly adding authentic cultural details to each of more than 48,000 separate objects shown in The Fellowship of the Ring, from armour to props to architecture. All this and more is shown in Gary Russell's lavishly illustrated book. Russell spent time on the set in New Zealand, conducting interviews with director Peter Jackson, special effects guru Richard Taylor, art directors Paul Lasainne, Dan Hennah, and Chris Hennah, costumer Ngila Dickson, and Alan Lee and John Howe. Featuring everything from pencil sketches to the finished objects, his book gives detailed descriptions of why and how this groundbreaking film looks as exciting as it does. The millions of fans dazzled by the results will find here everything they want to know about the genesis and evolution of the movie's incredible look. 193 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
