Special Effects: They Shall Not Grow Old

12/12/2019; 41 minutes

Advances in film restoration technology, the challenges of matching black and white footage with shades of military khaki, and the depth of Peter Jackson's passion for all things World War I arise in this conversation about They Shall Not Grow Old (2018) between assistant editor Elliot Travers and Ross Melnick (Film and Media Studies, UCSB). Travers describes the convoluted path the film took from its initial conception as a 30-minute museum commission for England's Imperial War Museum to an internationally-distributed feature-length film. Recorded on 11/20/2019. (#35411)
