Even if you haven’t heard of Weta Workshop before, you’ve probably heard of the movies they have worked on: Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Mad Max, Avatar, and Godzilla to name a few, but their filmography includes dozens more.
Jake Downing from Weta visited the Stellar Travel office in Bellevue, Washington. He brought a few props to share, including a prosthetic dwarf arm and an orc mask from The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.
Weta Workshop is an award-winning design studio and prop making facility. They can create anything from creature suits and makeup effects to custom vehicles and weapons. Their partner companies include Weta Digital (for computer-generated visual effects) and Park Road Post Production (for grading and sound effects).
If you’re a fan of Middle Earth, or if you’re just a movie buff who loves to go behind the scenes, you can visit Weta firsthand at their Wellington, New Zealand studios.
While the studios are open for tours 364 days a year, your Stellar Travel advisor can arrange an exclusive, VIP experience giving you private access to areas normally closed to the public. Options include a hands-on sculpting workshop with a Weta technician or the chance to record your own sound effects and take home your custom movie. You might even get to hold one of Weta’s five Oscars.
