Be sure to check out the comprehensive Lord of the Rings coverage in the upcoming Spring issue of Cinefex, due out on March 25.

Culled from some forty in-depth interviews with key contributors — including director Peter Jackson — the story features detailed information on production design, makeups, costumes, props, model and miniature work, plus the cutting-edge digital effects responsible for so many of the film’s memorable images. Accompanying the spread are more than sixty color photos ranging from behind-the-scenes shots to never-before-published effects clips.
