The older kids in your household are probably dreaming of when they can roam the globe and may have even put real plans on hold for trips and exchanges in the face of COVID-19. But if you’ve got secondary school students with a penchant for travel, and fantasy or sci-fi, SFX and a whole lot of fun, then you can bring the world to them: we’re joining the San Diego Comic-Con@Home this year! Wēta Workshops’ virtual Comic-Con booth will have a whole lineup of interesting activities, chats and giveaways. Things kick off on July 19, so keep an eye on this page for more details of the live stream event, and subscribe to the official Comic-Con International YouTube channel as well. Costumes are strongly encouraged.
We strongly encourage you to get snap-happy while you’re at Wētā Workshop Unleashed! There is so much to see, touch and hear that even the spongiest of brains can’t absorb all of the creative energy completely.
Capturing your favourite sights on camera means taking some of our [beautiful] insanity home with you. Stay tuned for a thorough checklist over the next little while, but in the meantime, here are a handful of must-have shots for you and the kids to grab!
Whether you stay in or bundle up and head out, you and the kids will be more than entertained these July school holidays with this list. We look forward to seeing you in person or online, and if you make anything especially quirky and artsy this break, throw a photo of it up on Instagram with the hashtag #wētāworkshopunleashed and tag us!
Join a guided tour for your chance to discover how incredible, imaginary worlds are brought to life through physical effects and movie-making magic.
Create your own movie-effects magic under the guidance of Weta Workshop’s experienced event technicians.
Worked up an appetite following both our tours? Add a three-course meal at the Art Deco setting of the Roxy Cinema or a Kiwi lunch at Karaka Café on the waterfront.
