Peter Jackson - From Prince of Splatter to Lord Of The Rings HC
This fascinating look at the now-celebrated director tells of the inspiration that led to the making of the three world-famous Lord Of The Rings films and the six other films that preceded them. In this unauthorized biography, Ian Pryor traces the journey of a young movie fanatic, from Sunday afternoons spent fooling around with a camera, through low-budget cult movies, to control of the most ambitious film project ever, on probably what is the best-loved fantasy novel ever written.
This in-depth biography explores the many talents of the young Peter Jackson and the making of Bad Taste, Meet the Feebles, Braindead, Heavenly Creatures, Forgotten Silver, The Frighteners, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Pryor looks at the story behind the Rings, explaining how Jackson got the rights and funding to make three films rather than collapsing the story into just one or two films. He also includes interviews and other behind-the-scenes material from the making of those landmark films. In addition to looking at the director's past achievements, the author also considers Jackson's remake of King Kong, as well as other possible future endeavors.
From cast of zombies, traumatized puppets, and murderous teenagers to deal-making in Hollywood, this book is about following one's vision wherever they might lead.
