The Making of a Spectacle

University essay from Lunds universitet/Filmvetenskap

Abstract: New Zealand director Peter Jackson’s film style is primarily focused on a technical level. Special effects and progressive filmmaking are some of Jackson’s main characteristics. His trial and error methods have enabled him to be independent and inventive, resulting in unconventional techniques and original technology. Much of the research made on Jackson and The Lord of the Rings treat subjects like adaptation, special effects, or the franchise. What is lacking in the spectra of study is a technical film style analysis. By examining specific elements such as the camerawork, lighting, editing, special effects, and behind-the-scenes, this essay distinguishes Jackson’s film style on a technical basis with an aesthetic emphasis, discussing and giving examples on both the superior and inferior features of his different attributes.
