Fran, assisted by VFX are department coordinator Hansah Bianchin, chose fares fom the films that represented moments in which each of the characters look the way we would wish to remember them, and I used these as the basis for pencil renditions. ‘Then Jean-Paul Leonard, of Company Wide Shut, who was responsible for the design work on the DVD menus forall three films, and had taken on the task of designing the end credit sequence, carefully composed the images and text and created the clegiac and beautiful look of our final departure from Middle arth ‘Alan Lee ‘May 2004 ry FEATURING 500 OF THE BEST WORKS OF ART FROM PETER JACKSON’S THE LORD OF THE RINGS URE AL el Rie Ce ee ia CR eM eme end paintings, Gary Russell presents the very finest works of art that inspired Peter Jackson, SDE he cee ee Ieee a Sen) Ce cr SS ee Re UR ep om re Co Peer en CeCe Rec I mC eS
