See behind the scenes at WETA as they make monkey magic.
The below player will be giving you a vantage point into the FX kitchens where the digital simians for Rupert Wyatt's Rise of the Planet of the Apes are being cooked up.
If you're early, come back at 2.18 PDT, or 10.18 PM here in the UK. Tell your friends.
If you want an early preview of just a few seconds, there is a certain little something we posted yesterday…
From the official press release:
WETA Digital, the industry-leading and Academy Award® winning visual effects house behind the wizardry of films such as Avatar, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and District 9, will host a live streaming event, for RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. On April 13, at 2:30PM PDT, from WETA's headquarters in Wellington, New Zealand, WETA's Joe Letteri and Dan Lemmon will give viewers an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at their work on the film, a reality-based cautionary tale that blends science fiction and science-fact.
We've got something happening at 18 minutes past the hour, not 30. It isn't clear what yet, but I'll definitely be watching.
UPDATE: We were told that this would begin at 9.18 in the UK. It did not. Somebody doing the PR made a booboo. Looks like it will be 10.18.
