Lord of the Rings Film Locations & Weta Workshop

We start with a short picturesque drive through the heart of Wellington City - Along the Waterfront, past Te Papa National Museum and through Oriental & Evans Bay to 'Wellywood' the home of Weta Studios. Weta Studios - The Weta Workshop Experience offers a peek into the magic of Weta and the many films they have worked on. Visitors are given an insight into the movies Weta is best known for, as well as given an insight to processes, creative and innovative thinking that goes on within the walls of our facilities, told by members of the talented crew from the workshop floor, using the props, models and weapons they helped make for the movies. Exclusive video clips are displayed throughout the tour, as well as descriptive boards, describing the process used for different disciplines, such as Armour & Costumes, Weapons & Props, Creatures & Make-up FX, Miniatures & Models, Conceptual Art and Merchandise. The Exhibition space will also reveal the history of Weta Workshop and what we have been busy with over the past 20 years.
