Peter Jackson: A Film Maker's Journey

$15.00

The Authorised Biography by Brian Sibley

In this authorised biography the boy from Wellington's Pukerua Bay reveals how he beat Hollywood at its own game. It is a story of passion, single-minded determination, and above all, an artistic vision and a sense of dramatic scale.
Through Jackson's eyes and own words, as well as re-tellings and memories of friends, family and associates, we are shown how the director's early life - with its obsessively pursued hobbies and first childhood attempts at film-making - were effectively one big audition for The Lord of the Rings and King Kong.
The book explores the Academy Award winning success of Heavenly Creatures, the first abandoned King Kong re-make, tehn the triumphant filming of The Lord of the Rings - a project that was abandoned two years into pre-production, rejected by most studios and then picked up by New Line Cinema in the biggest gamble in film history. It takes us through the filming of Jackson's boyhood dream, King Kong, and on to his new project, The Lovely Bones.
The story of Peter Jackson will inspire everyone who admires creativity and courage, who loves movies or is proud that a clever film maker from a small country can show the giants of the movie world that vision and passion can succeed.

Brian Shibley, the man Peter Jackson chose to work iwth on this biography, is a writer and broadcaster with a life long interest in fantasy books and cinema. His fascination with J.R.R. Tolkien led to his critically acclaimed BBC radio dramatisaation of The Lord of the Rings. He is the author of The Lord of the Rings Official Movie Guide and The Lord of the Rings: The Making of The Movie Trilogy.
