King Kong: Peter Jackson's Production Diaries [DVD] [Import]
The King Kong - Peter Jackson's Production Diaries is an impressive set geared directly toward fans, collectors, and those interested in the film-making process. In all likelihood Peter Jackson and co. are going to release a King Kong set bulging with extras, so why buy the "extras" now? Fair question. However, if you're aching with anticipation for a major glimpse into the 6-month production process of this modern day extravaganza, the King Kong - Peter Jackson's Production Diaries is an absolute "must have." Housed in a sturdy, faux clip board complete with a 52-page production memoir and art prints, this two DVD set opens up a three and a half hour window into what goes on in the making of a major blockbuster film. The bulk of the footage consists of the 54 "production diaries" (which can be sorted and viewed by production date or production location) culled from the "Kong is King" website. These hand held video diaries are candid peeks into the complex, humorous, detailed and involved world of the movie making process. There are a lot of Peter Jackson interviews, but over the six month time frame you eventually hear from every single person involved in the film--actors, the WETA team, animal trainers, assistant camera people, lighting technician, set crews, miniatures, make-up, etc. It is safe to say that not a stone is left unturned in revealing what goes on behind the scenes on a major motion picture set. Extremely careful not to give anything away, the King Kong - Peter Jackson's Production Diaries, though heavy in the production process, is very light on showing the final product. Nothing is revealed to ruin the movie experience. Well, almost nothing. One bonus video diary is "The Making of a Shot - The T-Rex Fight." In this 16 minutes diary you get to witness what goes on in creating the chilling "T-Rex Fight" from conception to special effects construction to the final jaw-dropping product. It is amazing to see two years of work unfold before your very eyes in two and a half minutes. --Rob Bracco
The Production Diaries are just what their name implies: Short segments made every few days throughout the production of Peter Jackson's 2005 remake of King Kong. They cover all the good stuff, the plotting, writing, planning, filming, and fiendishly challenging special effects. They're just what I wanted to round out the whole King Kong experience.
The package is an awkward size and shape but the clipboard had contains the DVD's happens to be just the right size to sit on the shelf next to the DVD'd and Blu-rays of the King Kong movies. The main box, designed to resemble a steamer trunk, sits on a different shelf with other odd-shaped movie memorabilia. You can find an unboxing video on YouTube that shows you all the extra goodies including the package, so I won't try to catalog it all here.
