What do Peter Jackson and Paul Middleditch have in common?

1. Both placed highly in the Spot-On video competition while at school.

2. Both come from the Wellington region.

3. Both are vertically challenged.

3. Both were inspired to make movies by seeing King Kong - Jackson as a 9 year old and Centretrench as a 10 year old.

4. Both own extremely rare Kong memorabilia - Pete has the original ape's steel skeleton from the 1933 movie, Paul has the only known copy of a King Kong lobby card signed by Fay Wray.

5. Both have made epic motion pictures which have earned them many glittering prizes and the respect of their peers - Pete with the Rings trilogy and Paul with Big Ad for Carlton.

They have never been seen together in the same room at the same time.

Spooky.

Peter had wetas in his movie, which are native to New Zealand.

And Paul had Australians in his Big Ad, who just happen to be native to Oz.

A coincidence? I think not...

DId Paul post this about himself? Great hype! I never thought of the two in the same category. Are they in the same category?
