“Richard Taylor and Weta Workshop's approach to fantasy is holistic and immersive. They believe that only by understanding the world, the cultures in it, and the characters within the context of those cultures, can you begin to design the individual pieces which will go before the camera. Avatar is all the richer for this approach. I look forward to the next time I work with Richard and his crew, so I can see what their fertile minds will devise."
James Cameron, Director: Avatar (2009)
Weta Workshop has been fortunate to work with some of the finest filmmakers of our time.
We designed Tintin and his world with Steven Spielberg. We went to Pandora with James Cameron. And we helped Neill Blomkamp and Gareth Edwards create their latest feature films.
To top it all off, we've been on two incredible journeys to Middle-earth with our good friend and co-founder Peter Jackson.
