It turns out that the film shot after J.R.R.Tolkien’s novel could not do without a Russian’s participation. In caption, one can see the name of Sergei Neshupov, computer graphics specialist from the city of Vladivostok. Six months before the shooting, he sent his work to the international competition devoted to the future screen version of the novel, to be more precise, that was a created by him advertising head-piece of Maritime TV company OTV-Prim. Soon he flew to New Zealand. The Russian artist still modestly holds back what was his contribution to the film, though he says he has already an offer from Hollywood.
