The N to Z of Film: Export Quality: Peter Jackson
This episode was recorded at NZ’s famous Avalon Studios – thanks to Richard & Tim for making that happen!
Peter Jackson had his start making smaller splatter, gross-out comedies like Bad Taste and the puppet filled Meet the Feebles. He garnered critical acclaim with the Oscar nominated Heavenly Creatures and soon found himself making the gigantic box office smash Lord of the Rings films.
In this episode we discuss his last New Zealand film Heavenly Creatures and his first Hollywood film, the Michael J Fox starring The Frighteners.
