Author Signing – Middle Earth: From Script To Screen

Unity Books is hosting an author signing with Daniel Falconer, Weta Workshop designer and author of ‘Middle Earth: From Script to Screen – Building the World of The Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit’.

Middle-Earth: From Script to Screen tells the complete story of how J. R. R. Tolkien’s magical world was brought to life on the big screen in the record-breaking film trilogies The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy and The Hobbit Motion Picture Trilogy. Drawing on resources, stories, and content from the archives of the companies and individuals behind the films, the book reveals: how the worlds were built, brick by brick and pixel by pixel, how environments were extended digitally or imagined entirely as computer generated spaces, how the multiple shooting units functioned, how cast members and characters interacted with their environments.

Where: Unity Books, 57 Willis St, Wellington.

When: Saturday, December 2nd from 1 – 2 pm
