Описание: A unique and personal account of the six-year quest to film 'The Lord of the Rings', together with revealing insights into the award-winning director's life and
films, including the 2005 blockbuster 'King Kong'. Once, Peter Jackson was a name unknown to all but a small band of loyal fans and fellow film-makers. Now he is the newest member
of Hollywood's elite fellowship, with his name on the most successful movie trilogy of all time.
Written with Jackson's full participation, this extensive biography, illustrated with
never-before-seen photos from Jackson's personal collection, tells the inside story of how a New Zealander became Hollywood's hottest property -- from the early cult classics, through
Academy Award -winning success with Kate Winslet's Heavenly Creatures, the abandoned King Kong remake, and the filming of The Lord of the Rings, a project which was
abandoned two years into pre-production, rejected by most of the other studios and then picked up by New Line Cinema in the biggest gamble in film history. Drawing upon interviews
with fifty of Peter Jackson's colleagues and contemporaries, author Brian Sibley paints a portrait of a true auteur, a man gifted with single-minded determination and an artist's vision.
Jackson himself is both revealing and insightful about 'The Lord of the Rings'; through his personal shooting diary, he tells of the highs and lows that could not be disclosed until the
award-winning films were finally completed: from over-zealous script doctors and accountants to the tantrums and frustrations on-set and disastrous early screenings.

most lucrative deals in Hollywood's history.

Описание: From the renowned author of the New York Times best seller The Sibley Guide to Birds, a comprehensive, beautifully illustrated guide to identifying birds in the field. Sibley's Birding Basics is an essential companion for birders of all skill and experience levels. With Sibley as your guide, learn how to interpret what the feathers, the anatomical structure, the sounds of a bird tell you. When you know the clues that show you why there's no such thing as, for example, "just a duck" birding will be more fun, and more meaningful. An essential addition to the Sibley shelf The Sibley Guide to Birds and The Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior are both universally acclaimed as the new standard source of species information. And now David Sibley, America's premier birder and best-known bird artist, turns his attention to the general characteristics that influence the appearance of all birds, unlocking the clues to their identity. In 200 beautifully rendered illustrations and 16 essays, this scientifically precise volume distills the essence of Sibley's own experience and skills, providing a solid introduction to "naming" the birds. Birding Basics reviews how one can get started as a birder--the equipment necessary, where and when to go birding, and perhaps most important, the essential things to look for when birds appear in the field--as well as the basic concepts of bird identification and the variations that can change the appearance of a bird over time or in different settings. Sibley also provides critical information on the aspects of avian life that differ from species to species: feathers (color, arrangement, shape, molt), behavior and habitat, and sounds.
