NBC News: Peter Jackson explains from his native New Zealand why he decided to make the prequel to his Academy Award-winning Lord of the Rings triliogy, and shares some of his filming techniques in advance of its world premiere.
Just a day before the world premiere of the highly anticipated film version of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic, Jackson talked to NBC News’ Ann Curry from his native Wellington, New Zealand where he made the film. Jackson took Rock Center behind the scenes of his visual effects company, Weta Digital, and also provided rare access to his movie studio, revealing secrets of the innovative moviemaking that's come to define his films. When Jackson talked to Curry in his first network television profile, he was still tinkering in the edit room despite the film’s premiere being hours away.
“I could happily work on ‘The Hobbit’ for another six months because you’re always thinking of things that you want to do and things to improve it,” Jackson said. “Because it’s never perfect and so, we just simply take every available minute, second, up until the time that the film has to be taken away from us.”
