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.

Paul Middleditch has actually made feature films and they are actually good. Where do these people come from Lynchy?
