Cameras in Narnia


There are a thousand stories in the land of Narnia - how Andrew Adamson brought The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe to the big screen is one of them.

How do you turn a book into a movie? How did the moviemaker capture the magic of Narnia? How did they bring its mystical beasts and creatures to life? What special skills do you need on a movie set? Ian Brodie, author of The Lord of the Rings Location Guidebook has gone behind the cameras to find the answers.

Using stills from the movie, his own photographs and interviews with key cast and crew, he describes the journey from book to screen, explaining how modern technology enabled director Andrew Adamson and his tem to bring the ageless children's classic to breathtaking life.

If you love movies and want to find out more about how they are made, then come behind the Cameras in Narnia and see for yourself.
