42 VIDEO SYMPHONY December 2009 • Post 1 This month, director Peter Jackson talks to Post about making Paramount's The Lovely Bones, a film adaptation of the best-selling book by Alice Sebold. The feature tells the story of murdered girl and her family's struggle to find her killer. Visual effects for the film include the surre- al purgatory Susie finds herself in after the murder. Post production took place in New Zealand at Park Road in Wellington, with nearby Weta Digital handing as many as 500 VFX shots. For more on Jackson's filmmaking process, turn to page 20.
