Peter Jackson with his Bafta award for Best Director Who's making the movies?
Peter Jackson is the director and co-writer of the mammoth trilogy of The Lord of the Rings movies.

He persuaded the movie company, New Line Cinema, to film the 210m trilogy in New Zealand.

Jackson's custom-built studio in Wellington, New Zealand, created hundreds of computer-generated special effects at a fraction of Hollywood charges.

Jackson was 12 when he made his first film, about World War II.

He and a couple of friends dug a hole in the garden, and Jackson made holes in the film to simulate gunshots.
