Lord of the Rings: Ten Years Gone

I have noted quite a bit of recent traffic to this site is coming from folks looking for information about the making of the Rings trilogy. No doubt this is motivated by the Hobbit films.

It’s been approximately a decade since I ended my work on documenting the making of Lord of the Rings. It was the longest and most complicated production I have ever undertaken, and it completely changed my professional focus since. So, no small thing for me!

I briefly summarized my experience about this on the Lord of the Rings page on this site. Hopefully this provides useful information for the curious.

This is a topic that is largely in the past for me. I’m obviously more interested in engaging with people who are interested in my current work, but I understand the continuing fascination anyone might have with the creation of what we all knew at the time was a unique and special production.
(I mean the Rings Trilogy, not my documentaries).

Therefore, I’m happy to address any questions readers might have. I think the statute of limitations has by now well and truly run out on the confidentiality agreement we all signed on commencing work with LOTR.
