THE LORD OF THE RINGS
Motion Picture Trilogy - The Exhibition is running at the Science Museum. Hundreds of props from the movies including models, armory and costumes will be on display alongside interactive computer demonstrations of the cutting-edge technology used to bring the story to life. Visitors will also have a chance to see the first two films of the trilogy at the Science Museum's cinema.
The exhibition includes:
* Demonstrations of special effects, including the combining of 'real' and 'digital' action and CGI (computer-generated-image technology).
* A scaling interactive explaining one way that the films managed to make characters seem different heights, which allows visitors to become Hobbit sized in a scene from THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING.
* A display on the prosthetics, which transformed actors, including Hobbit hands and feet.
* Weapons belonging to Arwen, Gandalf, Frodo, and Aragorn.
* Outfits including Arwen's riding costume, Galadriel's stunning dress and Gandalf's robes.
