I’m on the mailing list list of the American Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, NY, and they just sent me a message that contains the following:
“On Thursday, February 28 at 7:00 p.m., the Museum is especially pleased to present a Pinewood Dialogue with one of the key creative figures behind THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Coming all the way from New Zealand, Visual Effects Supervisor Jim Rygiel will present behind-the-scenes footage, and discuss the creation of the remarkable epic, and the upcoming films in the trilogy.
Rygiel is one of the pioneers of digital visual effects in film, with credits including STARSHIP TROOPERS, THE LAST STARFIGHTER, GHOST, ALIEN III, SPECIES, OUTBREAK, BATMAN RETURNS, and 102 DALMATIONS. Special thanks to New Line Cinema for making this program possible. (Tickets: $20 public, $14 for Museum members).
