Weta Videos: How To Make A Goblin King, Orcish Defiler Or Wide-Eyed Gollum

When we ran ILM’s behind the scenes promo for The Avengers, I wished for something comparable from Weta Digital. What we have here, I believe, is something better.

These clips, found at The LA Times, might not be dance floor fillers in the way ILM’s was, but there’s good info in the audio here as well as the video. Particularly the bits about herpes and Gollum’s pupil dilation and “uncomfortable spasms.”

Weta also contributed to The Avengers and Prometheus, meaning they have three films up for the Oscar. Even when you consider vote splitting, I think they’re pretty much assured a win – and, for my money, it’s The Hobbit that deserves it.
