Sex, Drugs and Soft Toys - The Making of Meet the Feebles

Television (Full Length) – 1989

That’ll do Richard — good vomit work!
– Jackson on set
I just think that movie-making is an extension of childhood fantasies. As a kid I was always playing with wooden bricks and creating castles and matchbox toys and creating little stories in my head ... and I don’t think I’ve grown out of that phase ...
– Jackson
I never wanted to be a director. That was not my ambition for some time ... I just wanted to be a special effects man in movies ...
– Jackson
One of my favourite quotes is from Alfred Hitchcock. He says, ‘I don’t mind films that are slices of life ... I make slices of cake’.
– Peter Jackson on his inspiration
You go inside the store where we keep them all [the puppets] and although they’re all lifeless and stuck on hooks or on poles, you actually know them all, and you almost expect them to turn and talk to you. And you know each of their characteristics and their personalities, it’s really weird ... we call it ‘Feebleitis’
– Jackson on falling in love with his characters
