World class visionaries

Weta Digital is to provide special effects for upcoming Hollywood blockbuster Avatar. Directed by James Cameron, the US$200 million sci-fi epic will be almost entirely made up of computer generated action. Cameron used George Lucas’ Industrial Light and Magic for visual effects in his previous films Titanic, The Abyss and Terminator 2, but has switched to Weta Digital on the strength of its award-winning performance capture animation. “Weta have proven themselves a leader in visionary effects,” says Cameron. “Along with their world-class capability comes a genuine passion to blaze new trails.”
