CANBERRA – Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson is to produce a new sound and light show on World War I aviation for the Australian War Memorial. Jackson, who won three Academy Awards for the film trilogy, will produce a 10-minute big-screen extravaganza to help visitors experience the risks, action and drama of First World War aerial battles. “It is very exciting for the memorial to have Peter Jackson involved in the creation of the multimedia for Over the Front,” assistant director for public programs Helen Withnell said. Presented on a large screen – measuring 21m by 3.5m – a 6:1 aspect ratio – the 10-minute sound and light show will be screened each hour. Peter Jackson to produce short WW1 film
