Air New Zealand has hired the effects crew from the Lord of the Rings to produce its 'An Unexpected Briefing' film. The short safety guide reinterprets the way airlines deliver security instructions with a fresh interest in cinematography, satire and humor.
This type of production is one that would catch the attention of flyers. Advisories are typically known for being dry and to the point, leading many to disregard the critical information. WETA's production captivates audiences by contrast, enthralling viewers with this major motion picture take on in-flight protection.
Adding to the drama of An Unexpected Briefing is its stacked star cast. J.R.R. Tolkien's great grandson stars in the clips alongside Peter Jackson. The actors take on classic Lord of the Rings characteristics with hobbit-like costumes.
