ABOUT THE BOOK: We Make Our Own Destiny: Behind the Scenes of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time immerses readers in the filmmaking process, recounting the saga that began with Jordan Mechner’s video game and culminated in a production of monumental proportions. Every grain of sand in the hourglass is examined—from horsemanship training to set construction to ostrich racing to the art of parkour. Detailed cast biographies reveal the personalities underneath the charismatic characters, and fascinating sidebars divulge insider information about crucial props and weapons, feathered and furry co-stars, and the lethal Hassansins, each of whom specializes in a different brand of death-dealing. Abundantly distributed throughout the narrative is gorgeous photography shot on location that showcases the awe-inspiring landscapes and meticulously constructed sets that coalesced to create the world of ancient Persia.Also featured within are several spreads of photography by Jerry Bruckheimer, whose unique perspective provides a window into the realm behind the camera. A Foreword written by Bruckheimer and an Afterword written by Jake Gyllenhaal provide ideal book-ends for the spellbinding tale, and quotes from the entire cast and crew are liberally woven into every chapter".
