SPEECH
Rygiel: I just want to say thank you to J.R.R. Tolkien who wrote it, Peter Jackson who directed it. New Line who supported it. My wife and family, Teresa, Sarah and Jackson, who supported me and the amazing artists at Weta Digital in New Zealand. Here it is.

Taylor: We wanted to weave a tapestry of heightened reality with the special effects on LORD OF THE RINGS and a tribute has to go to Alex Funke, DOP of the miniatures department, Carla Fry who was there with us from the beginning. The wonderful people at the Weta workshop, Mary Machlachlan, John Baster, Jay Docherty and all of my good friends back at home. And especially my partner Tania. I send my love to you.
