King Kong/LOR Talent for Elements Festival

One of the creative talents behind the King Kong Christmas blockbuster, and the Lord of the Rings movies will outline his work at a special presentation at the Porirua Festival of the Elements on Waitangi Day.

Titahi Bay’s own Daniel Reeve has become internationally known for his calligraphy and cartography work in films including all three of the LOTR movies, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, King Kong and Van Helsing.

Daniel has also done artwork for the games of Risk and Monopoly for Hasbro, maps of Middle-earth and tengwar lettered trading cards for Decipher, titles and menus for Extended Edition DVDs, and maps for a computer game by Electronic Arts.

People attending the Festival of the Elements will have the opportunity to see some of Daniel’s work firsthand, and to hear him speak about his work.

His presentation at the Festival will include displays of some of the maps, calligraphy and other work he’s done for the movies.

Daniel Reeve also recently worked collaboratively with Te Papa and the National Archives, producing a replica of the Treaty of Waitangi. The replica will be on show at the Festival as part of a special Te Papa roadshow presentation, TREATY 2U.

Dan says he is looking forward to the Festival in Porirua.

“I’m appearing at the Festival of the Elements because I like to share what I do with others, and I’d like to give something back to the community,” Dan says.

“I have a whole lot of stuff to show people at the Festival, and I’ll be happy to answer questions,” Dan says.

Details about February's Festival Programme are available on the official Festival of the Elements website at www.elementsfestival.co.nz

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
