In this shot I worked on a lot of buildings, roughly 20 city blocks while working at Weta Digital for the movie King Kong.

Please note, I worked on some of the buildings here, not the whole scene.

forgot to post this with the rest :)

What kinda resarch did you and other people do at weta to make it look THIS accurate exacly? Because it looks just like a picture from the 30s.

There was a lot of research done to make it as authentic as possible, I beleive we had people working full time working on this.
Going through archives & finding old photo's, maps etc.

You work at Weta?! I want to. It's a tough choice between workshop or digital for me.
3DnuTTa's avatar
I worked at Weta, I work for myself now :)

Ah. Was it as cool as they make it look in the behind the scenes videos?
3DnuTTa's avatar
Yeah it was a great place to work, could be long hours some times tho ;)
eviolinist's avatar
Yeah, I can imagine. Were you in the workshop at all? Did you by chance have any interaction with Richard Taylor?
3DnuTTa's avatar
Yeah I have been into Workshop, the tour is a lot of fun, but you have to work at Weta to go on it ;)
Have talked to Richard Taylor on a couple of occasions, he is very polite and approachable. Great guy!
eviolinist's avatar
Aww. :( He always seems like that in the videos. Love his accent. OK, how about Peter Jackson? Then I'll be done grilling you with questions. :)
3DnuTTa's avatar
Well, I never had the chance to talk to him.
I saw him on the odd occasion, but he was so busy.
