'''Peter Robert Jackson''' (born October 31, 1961) is a New Zealand director, producer and screenwriter, best known for his hugely successful ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' film trilogy, adapted from [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings the book of the same name]]. The final movie of the trilogy, ''The Return of the King'', won 11 Academy Awards at the 2004 ceremony to honour films of the previous year, including Best Picture and Best Director. This made him only the fourth person to win Oscars for directing, producing and screenwriting in the same year (joining Creator/BillyWilder, Creator/FrancisFordCoppola, and Creator/JamesLBrooks; this group would be joined four years later by Creator/TheCoenBrothers).

* CreatorCouple: His wife Fran Walsh has been a co-writer and co-producer on all his films, with the exception of ''Bad Taste'', and provided the voice of the Nazgul in ''Lord of the Rings''.
* DescendedCreator: In ''Bad Taste'' he's one of the primary characters, Derek, since he'd run out of people to help and figured that he knew he'd show up to film.
* Determinator: Goodness gracious, yes. In addition to being a largely self-taught film-maker, the efforts he goes through for some of his films are astounding.[[note]](Multiple obstacles for ''Bad Taste'', shooting in secrecy for ''Meet the Feebles'', ''Braindead'' and ''King Kong'' crashing and burning once each, to say nothing of the difficulties he had with ''The Lord of the Rings''.)[[/note]]
* DoingItForTheArt: Rather than money, he's very motivated by projects that he finds interesting.

Jackson is known for his macabre sense of humor, his attention to detail, his dedication to the job and his general playful attitude. He is also a noted perfectionist, demanding numerous takes of almost every scene. His work often features multiple camera angles and shots, as well as zooming closeups on characters' faces. He is known for enthusiastically using computer enhancement technology and digital special effects. He also likes to have [[CreatorCameo cameos]] in his films, and others too; for example, he made an uncredited appearance in ''Film/HotFuzz'' as a knife-wielding Santa Claus.

* BadassBeard: To the point where when he shaved it to play a gunner in ''King Kong'' he was so unrecognizable that his family shelved his idea of keeping it off for a little while.
* CreatorCameo: Usually in all of his films, bar ''Bad Taste''.



* DescendedCreator: In ''Bad Taste'' he's one of the primary characters, Derek, since he'd run out of people to help and figured that he knew he'd show up to film.
* Determinator: Goodness gracious, yes. In addition to being a largely self-taught film-maker, the efforts he goes through for some of his films are astounding.[[note]](Multiple obstacles for ''Bad Taste'', shooting in secrecy for ''Meet the Feebles'', ''Braindead'' and ''King Kong'' crashing and burning once each, to say nothing of the difficulties he had with ''The Lord of the Rings''.)[[/note]]
* DoingItForTheArt: Rather than money, he's very motivated by projects that he finds interesting.
* GenreBlind: In one occasion (to be fair, this was in the 1980's) he failed to see why a Japanese distributor would be interested in ''Film/MeetTheFeebles''.



* OneOfUs: He's a fan of ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' and wanted to do a movie based on it, but it never got off the ground.

to:

* OneOfUs: NiceGuy: As quoted by friend and fellow ''Bad Taste'' star Mike Minett; "The rest of us were into sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll, but [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Peter was just this nice, adorable guy who loved his mum and dad and was really into making movies]]."

Prior to his work on the trilogy, he already had a cult following for his splatter comedies[[note]]a "splatter comedy" is pretty much a slapstick comedy meets a gross-out dark comedy[[/note]]. In 1994, he received his first Oscar nomination for screenwriting for ''Film/HeavenlyCreatures'', based on the 1954 Parker-Hulme murder, committed by two teenage girls in Christchurch, New Zealand. His first big budget movie was ''Film/TheFrighteners'', starring Creator/MichaelJFox. Unfortunately, the movie wasn't commercially successful. In 2005, he [[Film/KingKong2005 finally fulfilled his dream to remake]] the 1933 classic ''Film/{{King Kong|1933}}''.

* {{Gorn}}: ''Bad Taste'' and ''Braindead'' are practically dripping with blood and guts.
