Peter Jackson New Zealand Filmmaker Peter Jackson Director Peter Jackson Peter Jackson with his Oscar Award


The most honest form of film-making is to make a film for yourself. The worst type is dictated by demographics or what is hip or what kids are into. Kong isn't driven by that. No way would a studio think this is the year that people want to see a big gorilla movie. I've come to realize that, as much as anything, I am making this for the 9-year-old Peter.

No film has captivated my imagination more than King Kong. I'm making movies today because I saw this film when I was 9 years old. It has been my sustained dream to reinterpret this classic story for a new age.

What I don't like are pompous, pretentious movies.

New Zealand is not a small country but a large village.

To get an Oscar would be an incredible moment in my career, there is no doubt about that. But the 'Lord of the Rings' films are not made for Oscars, they are made for the audience.

As a child Peter Jackson used to commandeer his mother's kitchen to cook up gore and viscera for his homemade 8-mm movies, and in his many features he has never lost this childlike glee in the sheer joy of making movies. He started his career making outrageous no-budget horror films, but The Lord of the Rings trilogy put him at the top of the Hollywood film-making fraternity.

He began experimenting with his parents' Super 8 camera, and his early filmography includes a Second World War piece entitled “The Dwarf Patrol,” a James Bond spoof, “Coldfinger” - with Jackson himself playing 007 - and “Revenge of the Gravewalker”, a wide-screen zombie epic.

His parents were Joan (nee: Ruck), a factory worker and housewife, and William (Bill) Jackson, a wages clerk who immigrated from England. Both of his parents died during production of “The Lord of the Rings”.

He left school at the age of 17 and started working on a Wellington newspaper.

For his first movie, “Bad Taste” (1987), he did all the special effects, the make-up effects and built exact replicas of the weapons.

Jackson had no formal training in film-making, but learned about editing, special effects and make-up largely through his own trial and error.

He always writes his scripts with his real-life partner Fran Walsh.

Well known on-set for insisting on lots of coverage (filming the scene from many different angles), his attention to detail, and being a bit of a perfectionist, especially on the "Lord of the Rings" films, where he would spend days shooting a single scene.

Owner of production companies WingNut Films, Weta Limited and Three Foot Six.

Collects models of airplanes from World War One.

During filming of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), he used the same pair of shoes and only two T-shirts.

He likes 1960s music his favorites are The Beatles.

In 1998, he bought the New Zealand based film company National Film Unit.

Has been referred to by Fran Walsh as being a hobbit himself, due to his physical stature, his tendency to go barefoot, and the fact that he is swarthy (in Walsh's words, "furry").

Lost 70 lbs. during the production of King Kong (2005).

No longer needs glasses after undergoing eye surgery during the making of King Kong (2005).

Is a fan of "Doctor Who" (1963) .

Made a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2002.

He was awarded Knight Companion of the Order of New Zealand for his services to the film industry in the 2010 Queen's New Years Honours List.

He contributed to the defense fund for the West Memphis Three.

He purchased a church in the Wellington suburb of Seatoun for about $10 million, saving it from demolition.

He has donated NZ$500,000 to stem cell research.

Jackson's eldest son, Billy (born 1995), has made cameo appearances in every one of his father's films since his birth.
