Writers reveal their Lord of the Rings on-set secrets
Brian Sibley and Jude Fisher, authors of official guides to the Lord of the Rings films, are to share their experiences of the blockbuster trilogy at the Science Museum in London.
The two authors will talk to film fans in the museum lecture theatre at 2pm on Saturday 8 November. A book signing will follow the event at 3pm in the Science Museum’s Ottakar’s bookshop.
The talk is just one of a series of events at the museum to accompany The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy – The Exhibition.
Hundreds of props from the movies including models, armoury and costumes are on display alongside interactive computer demonstrations of the cutting-edge technology used to bring the story to life.
The family exhibition has opened before the final instalment of the film trilogy and the Science Museum is its only European host. Visitors also have a chance to see the first two films of the trilogy at the Science Museum’s cinema.
Jude and Brian will share their experiences on the set of the three movies and of working with the cast and crew to create their books which include The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy (Sibley) and The Official Illustrated Movie Companion (Fisher).
The event is free, but tickets must be pre-booked on 020 7942 4739. (Maximum 2 per person.)
