Creating a fantasy world in a live action movie so believable is a Herculean task. The worst part is transforming a single story into three films without losing its soul and continuity. The seventeen Oscars vouch how perfect was Peter Jackson’s take on JRR Tolkien’s epic.
While watching the LOTR series (I watched the trilogy in a single go including the making of it), I was fascinated by his method of working. He is truly a perfectionist, never leaves a stone unturned. His attention to detail and shooting a single scene for multiple times from different angles to get more options for the cutting table was something I never have experienced before.
The idea of making this small tribute came from a footage I saw in the making part of LOTR. Jackson was famous for wearing shorts and going barefoot under most circumstances, especially during film shoots with a macabre sense of humor, and a general playfulness.
