Last Thursday the Wellington team headed out to Miramar for the famous Weta Cave Workshop tour. After being greeted by a trio of trolls and browsing the gift shop, we entered the top secret place that is the workshop itself! Our tour guide explained how the whole process goes from a concept to a tangible design, how they perfectly paint something only to have to scratch it all up to make it look worn and the painstaking method of making chain maille. We held a variety of “guns” including those from District 9 and we were let in on some trade stories and inside jokes. It was an eye-opening experience into the amount of work that goes into making these films! After the tour, it was a short walk down the road to The Larder where we had a delicious 3-course meal for our farewell dinner. There were a range of choices available with something to suit everyone’s taste buds.
