The Australian newspaper The Age has posted an article about the production of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and what the future may hold for Peter Jackson's filmmaking empire. It mentions that ILM animator Paul Griffin recently moved to New Zealand betting on the future potential and projects of Weta Digital.
Paul Griffin has worked on such projects as the Star Wars prequels and Jurassic Park 3.
The article draws several parallels to what Lucas accomplished in Northern California and tells of some of the tribulations and controversy about the filmmaking industry in New Zealand. You can read the article here:
Thanks to dr. CGI for the heads up.
