Report: “Peter Jackson to Make 3D First World War Film Restoring Unseen Archive Footage”
Archive testimonies of First World War soldiers will be restored with the latest digital technology and turned into a new 3D film by Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, marking the centenary of the Armistice.
Archival footage from from the Imperial War Museum archives, much of it never seen before, will be hand-coloured and set alongside audio from the BBC vaults, to tell a “squaddies’ story” of the War.
