PREMIUM – One Week at Weta Workshop, Part 6

A full week of work comes together as we go on set to shoot the short film! Half the team heads to Weta Workshop for early morning creature makeup, while the production crew and Adam go on location to begin filming. There’s lot of problem-solving in the moment to get all of our shots, and both Peter Jackson and Richard Taylor visit the set to lend some advice.

  1. That final day looked like a hell of a lot of fun. great end to a great series. Thanks, Tested and Weta!

  2. What a fun to watch… the whole series is what a “Making of” to movie-making should look like.

    Many thanks for all the parts already shown from this series and – hopefully – to those still to come!

    Edit: forgot to ask… does Weta / Tested sell replicas of the daggers used on screen?

  3. It’s great to see what goes on behind the scenes even for a short film, but how often has Adam practiced dropping “When I was in that short film with Peter Jackson” into conversation?

  4. Astounding series. All of it. Am I gushing?
    Is this too much praise?

    Too much praise, not enough praise!

  5. Wasn’t that shot in Paradise? At least the same general area, where the Hobbits encountered the black riders for the first time? It looks so familiar.

    Oh btw: you’re getting quite a bit of money from us, when you’re making short movies with world famous effect shops, big movie cameras and equally famous directors. 😉

    rascaldi 🙂

  6. There’s something delightful about the way in which Peter and Richard show up on set and then immediately start doing the jobs that they’ll be doing in their cameos, even when they aren’t being filmed. There’s no reason why Peter has to be helping with directing, or Richard has to be pumping blood when they aren’t shooting coverage on them, but they both do it anyway because they obviously love doing it.
