The Making of "Master and Commander": The "Far Side of the World"

Author(s): Tom McGregor

Film, TV and Theatre

For the first time, OâÂÂBrian is to be brought to life by Hollywood with a depth of imagination and faithfulness to the spirit of the books matched only in scope by its budget and historical attention to detail. Based on the early novels in the Aubrey â Maturin series, this film will bring the high seas to the silver screen with all the excitement and vivacity of an OâÂÂBrian book, and the illustrated companion to the film will showcase the same high production standards and imagination as the film itself. With unique access to the film set, Tom McGregor will weave together the story of how the world of OâÂÂBrianâÂÂs books â with its seafaring, swashbuckling adventures, highly drawn characterization and elements of romance and intrigue â was brought vividly to life by Peter Weir (director of Dead Poetsâ Society, Greencard, The Truman Show).
