The activities in this guide put students in
the directors chair. They encourage the same sort of creativity
and ingenuity that Peter Jackson and his team used in making The
Lord of the Rings.
- How do you make chain mail that looks like the real thing but doesn't weigh a ton?
- How do you make big look small and small look big?
- How do you make new stuff look worn and torn?
Let your students unlock behind-the-scenes secrets - and try out their own ideas!
