Gary Russell

From Tolkien Gateway

Gary Russell (September 18, 1963) is a freelance writer and former child actor (of "Famous Five" fame), who has worked as a writer for franchises as Marvel and Dr. Who. He wrote several books relating to Peter Jackson's movies.


To me, it starts with the conceptual art, the earliest sketches and drawings done back in 1996/7. Then it goes on through the Weta stuff, with paintings, maquettes and everything right up to the commencement of filming - and beyond. I deliberately wanted to avoid focussing on the actual finished film itself as Brian Sibley's book covered that so well.
