MOTAT's digital team sat down for a chat with Weta Digital’s Visual Effects Supervisor, Guy Williams, to learn more about how they made it happen and what future generations need to get involved in the VFX industry.
Weta Digital has been around since 1993 and already had high-end tech that they could build on. Guy says, “We built on the existing Weta systems that had. We definitely developed a lot just for the film, but we were lucky enough to have 20 years of rich history that we could pull from.”
Guy says their experience in film making and visual effects in the five years before Gemini Man was produced, helped them understand how much work they had ahead to create Junior, and gave them the confidence they could achieve this in just 12 months.
