Biography

Early life

Born on 31 October 1961 in Pukerua Bay, a coastal town near Wellington New Zealand, Jackson was an only child to Bill and Joan Jackson, both immigrants from England. As a child, Jackson was a keen film fan, growing up on Ray Harryhausen films as well finding inspiration in the television series Thunderbirds and Monty Python's Flying Circus. After a family friend gave the Jacksons a Super 8 cine-camera with Peter in mind, he began making short films with his friends. Jackson has long cited King Kong as his favourite film, and around the age of nine he attempted to remake it using his own stop-motion models.[3] is the 304th day of the year (305th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Jackson has had no formal training in film-making, and claims to have been turned down for a job with the National Film Unit, the government body which produced publicity and tourist films about New Zealand. As a teenager Jackson discovered the work of author J. R. R. Tolkien, after watching The Lord of the Rings(1978), the part-adaptation of Tolkien's fantasy trilogy. He then decided to go read Tolkien's books, in order to learn more about Tolkien's world and characters. [4] After leaving school Jackson began working as a photoengraver at a newspaper company in Wellington, where he met some of the people who would work with him on his first feature film. Shooting was normally done in the weekends since Jackson was working full-time. One of these early weekend films was to grow into his first feature film, Bad Taste, a movie about aliens that come to earth with the desire of turning humans into food. He created extensive special effects for the film, including one infamous alien vomit drinking scene utilising some muesli mixed with green food colouring. Tolkien redirects here. ...

Bad Taste is a low-budget 1987 cult film, one of the first directed by Peter Jackson, in which aliens invade the fictional New Zealand village of Kaihoro (population 78) in order to harvest human beings for their intergalactic fast food franchise but are repelled by a four-man paramilitary...


Low-budget splatter

Over four years (from 1983 to 1987) the horror comedy Bad Taste grew in haphazard fashion into a 90-minute feature, with many of his friends acting and working on it for free. The film was finally completed with a late injection of finance from Government body the New Zealand Film Commission, after NZFC executive director Jim Booth became convinced of Jackson's talent (Booth would later leave the Commission to become Jackson's longtime producer.) In May 1987 Bad Taste was unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival, where rights to the film quickly sold to twelve countries. Bad Taste is a low-budget 1987 cult film, one of the first directed by Peter Jackson, in which aliens invade the fictional New Zealand village of Kaihoro (population 78) in order to harvest human beings for their intergalactic fast food franchise but are repelled by a four-man paramilitary...

The Cannes Film Festival (French: le Festival de Cannes), founded in 1939, is one of the worlds oldest, most influential and prestigious film festivals. ...


Around this time Jackson began working on writing multiple movie scripts, in various collaborative groupings with playwright Stephen Sinclair, writer Fran Walsh and writer/actor Danny Mulheron. Walsh would later become his partner, and mother of his son Billy and his daughter Katie. Some of the scripts, including a Nightmare Elm Street sequel, were never made; two became his next films. Fran Walsh and her husband Peter Jackson Frances Walsh MNZM is an Academy Award-winning screenwriter and film producer and also a musician. ...


Jackson's second feature film turned out to be Meet the Feebles (1989). A warped musical comedy starring Muppet-style puppets, Feebles was originally planned as a short film for television, but was rapidly expanded into a full-length script after unexpected enthusiasm from Japanese investors. Feebles marked Jackson's first collaboration with special effects team Richard Taylor and Tania Rodger, who would subsequently work on all Jackson's movies. In some ways Meet the Feebles is in keeping with Jackson's other movies from this period - Feebles features gross-out humour (in this case including the use of vomit and other bodily secretions) and extensive special effects.

Jackson's next project was the comedy Braindead (1992) (released in North America as Dead Alive), now seen as a landmark in splatter movies. Originally planned as a Spanish co-production, the film reversed the usual zombie plot - rather than keeping the zombies out of his place of refuge, the hero attempts to keep them inside, while maintaining a facade of normality.

'Arthouse'

Released in 1994, Heavenly Creatures marked a major change for Jackson in terms of both style and tone. The film is based on real life events: namely the Parker-Hulme murder in which two teenage girls in 1950s Christchurch became close friends, some say lovers, and later murdered the mother of one of the girls. Based on his previous filmography, many New Zealanders were apprehensive about how Jackson would treat his subject matter. Most commentators felt that Jackson and his co-writer Fran Walsh had dealt with the events sensitively. The film's growing fame coincided with the New Zealand media tracking down the real-life Juliet Hulme, where she now wrote murder mysteries in Scotland under the name Anne Perry. This turn of events saw the expression of some contrasting views between Jackson, Walsh and Hulme in interviews, about the film's fidelity to what had occured (although Hulme admitted she had not seen the film, and had no desire to.) Heavenly Creatures received considerable critical acclaim, including an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay and making top ten of the year lists in Time, The Guardian, The Sydney Morning Herald, and The New Zealand Herald.

The following year, in collaboration with Wellington filmmaker Costa Botes, Jackson co-directed the 'mockumentary', Forgotten Silver (1995). This ambitious made for television piece claimed to tell the story of New Zealand film pioneer Colin McKenzie who had supposedly invented colour film and 'talkies', and attempted an epic film of Salome before dying tragically and being forgotten by the world. The film was screened on New Zealand television as if it were fact. Many people were outraged at discovering Colin McKenzie had never existed. The number of people who believed the increasingly improbable story is testimony to Jackson and Botes' skill at playing on New Zealand's national myth of a nation of innovators and forgotten trail-blazers.[5] Costa Botes is a writer, director, and cinematographer. ...

In the meantime, Jackson and Walsh welcomed their children, Billy (1995) and Katie (1996) into the world.


Breaking into Hollywood, growth of Weta

The success of Heavenly Creatures led to Jackson's first big budget Hollywood movie The Frighteners (1996), starring Michael J. Fox. Thanks partly to support from American producer Robert Zemeckis, Jackson was given permission to make this part comedy, part horror movie entirely in New Zealand, even though the story is set in the United States. This period was a key one of change for both Jackson and Weta, the special effects company with which he is often associated. Weta, initiated by Jackson and key collaborators, grew rapidly during this period to incorporate both digital effects (the company was born from the one man and a computer contributions of George Port to Heavenly Creatures) and physical effects, make-up and costumes (the later three areas normally commanded by Jackson collaborator Richard Taylor).

The Frighteners was regarded as a commercial failure. Though the film has always had its defenders, some critics expressed disappointment that it displayed little of the anarchistic humor of Jackson's early movies and that the script felt underdeveloped. Soon after Jackson's remake of King Kong was shelved by Universal Studios (partly because Mighty Joe Young, another giant gorilla movie, had already gone into production). When pre-production was halted, Jackson and Walsh began work on another big budget fantasy, a film of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.

Jackson's mother Joan died 3 days before the release of the first movie in the trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring. There was a special showing of the film after her funeral.[6]


Following The Return of the King, Jackson lost a large amount of weight (over 50 lb/22.5 kg) to the point of being unrecognizable to some fans. In the British Daily Telegraph he attributed his weight loss to his diet. He said, "I just got tired of being overweight and unfit, so I changed my diet from hamburgers to yogurt and muesli and it seems to work."[7] This article concerns the British newspaper. ...

King Kong

Main article: King Kong (2005 film)

Universal Studios now returned to the fray, signing Peter Jackson for a second time to remake the 1933 classic King Kong — the film that inspired him to become a film director as a boy.[8] He was reportedly being paid a fee of US$20 million upfront, the highest salary ever paid to a film director in advance of production, against a 20 percent take of the box-office rentals (the portion of the price of the ticket that goes to the film distributor, in this case Universal). The film was released on December 14, 2005, and grossed around US$550 million worldwide.

Jackson had talked of producing films for others as early as 1995, but a number of factors slowed developments in this regard, including the failure of Jack Brown Genius (1995). After Jackson became a force in Hollywood, he was set to produce a $128 million movie version of the sci-fi video game Halo, but the project went on hold when fiscal backers withdrew their support.[11][12] Additionally, Jackson will produce a remake of The Dam Busters in 2008, to be directed by longtime Weta designer Christian Rivers. [13] Jackson has also earned the rights to a film adaptation of the fantasy novel series Temeraire, a novel about dragons being used in combat in the Napoleonic Wars and the story of a dragon named Temeraire and his captain, Will Laurence, during that time period, written by Naomi Novik. It remains to be seen if he will direct it.[14] Also he will produce District 9, a sci-fi project which Neill Blomkamp will direct, likely after the adaptions for Halo has finally been completed.

The Hobbit

Jackson's involvement in the making of a film version of The Hobbit, along with another possible The Lord of the Rings prequel, has a long and chequered history. In November 2006, a letter from Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh mentioned that due to an ongoing legal dispute between Wingnut Films (Jackson's production company) and New Line Cinema, they would likely not be directing the film.[16] However, in response, MGM spokesman Jeff Pryor stated that "we still believe this matter of Peter Jackson directing The Hobbit is far from closed." ( MGM owns the distribution rights to The Hobbit film). New Line Cinema's head, Robert Shaye said that the studio "will never make any movie with New Line Cinema again while I'm still working for the company."[17] An online boycott of New Line Cinema was begun in the hopes of compelling New Line Cinema to renegotiate with Peter Jackson.[18] For the planned live action film, see The Lord of the Rings film trilogy#Prequels. ... Categories: Possible copyright violations ...


Shaye's comments marked the first time a New Line executive had commented publicly on the franchise since Jackson announced that he was pulled out of the project. In August 2007 though Shaye was trying to repair his working relationship with Jackson, and confirmed that company insiders had been in talks with Jackson's reps. "I really respect and admire Peter and would love for him to be creatively involved in some way in The Hobbit," Shaye said."[19] On December 18, 2007, it was announced that Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema had reached agreement to make two prequels, one based on The Hobbit which will be released in 2011 and 2012.

Style

Jackson is well known for an attention to detail, a habit of shooting scenes from many angles, a macabre sense of humour and a general playfulness, the later to the point where The Lord of the Rings conceptual designer Alan Lee jokingly remarked "the film is almost incidental really".[26] Image File history File links Emblem-important. ...

Unlike some other film directors, Jackson has remained in his native country to make films. This has been the genesis of several production and support companies. Most of Jackson's assets are found on the Miramar Peninsula in his home town of Wellington, and much of his filming occurs in and around the city.

Jackson was a noted perfectionist on the Lord of the Rings shoot where he demanded numerous takes of scenes, requesting additional takes by repeatedly saying, "one more for luck".[27]. Jackson is also renowned within the New Zealand film industry for his insistence on "coverage" — shooting a scene from as many angles as possible, giving him more options to choose from in the editing process.[citation needed] A trademark, perhaps, of his roots in do-it-yourself filmmaking, Jackson has been known to spend days shooting a single scene. This is evident in his work where even scenes featuring simple conversations often feature a wide array of multiple camera angles and shot-sizes as well as zooming closeups on characters' faces. One of his most common visual trademarks is shooting close-ups of actors with wide-angle lenses.[citation needed]


Awards

Jackson won three Academy Awards for The Return of the King, including the Academy Award for Best Director. The Academy Award for Directing is one of the awards given to people working in the motion picture industry by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences; the awards are voted on by other people within the industry. ...
