It was great to see a big bunch of Wellington-based Weta digital artists getting nominated today – for their work on Avatar – in the prestigious Visual Effects Society Awards in the US. The nominations are here.
Weta had nine nominations, more than any other effects house working on the movie. Weta Digital was also the only effects house to be mentioned by director James Cameron in his Golden Globe best picture acceptance speech last week.
It’s been a privilege working with Weta’s digital artists over the past 12 months and fantastic to see them getting recognised for their groundbreaking work.
