Peter Jackson: A Film-maker's Journey
Peter Jackson: A Film-maker's Journey
by Brian Sibley
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you believe anything is possible..., 30 May 2008
This is a wonderful insight into the life of Peter Jackson. I picked the book up and couldn't put it down. Each chapter is filled with intriguing stories about how Jackson single-handedly (with help and support from parents and friends) forged himself a film career. The behind-the-scenes stories feel like you're getting a sneaky glimpse into the glamorous (but mostly unglamorous!) film industry. The book leaves you feeling you were there on the sets of his films. So much so that I went back and watched all of his early splatter films again with a new knowledge about how they were made and how much effort was put in (especially on Braindead). On the negative, it seems that nobody proof-read the book as there are quite a few grammatical errors. Nevertheless, this comes highly recommended.
