Tolkien Gateway

Grant Major

Grant Major (1955) was the production designer for The Lord of the Rings (film series). He oversaw the creation of sets such as Rivendell, Hobbiton, Moria, and others. Realism and detail were a must in transforming Middle-earth to the screen, without Major's perfectionism the films would have been greatly different.
