About Weta Digital
Weta Digital is a world leading visual effects company based in Wellington, New Zealand. We provide a full suite of digital production services for feature films and high end commercials, from concept design to cutting edge 3D animation.
Weta was formed in 1993 by a group of young New Zealand filmmakers including Peter Jackson, Richard Taylor and Jamie Selkirk. It later split into two specialised halves - Weta Digital (digital effects) and Weta Workshop (physical effects).
One of our first projects was to provide visual effects for Peter Jackson’s film Heavenly Creatures. We went on to work digital magic on Peter’s blockbuster movies The Lord of the Rings trilogy and King Kong.
We also work with other Hollywood directors, providing digital effects for box office hits like I, Robot, X-Men: The Last Stand, and The Water Horse.
Weta Digital has been nominated for five visual effects Oscars® and won four.
Our reputation for creativity and delivery keeps us in high demand with some of the world’s leading film studios.
