A Few Updates from Weta

Posted May 22, 2009 11:20 am by fantasia_kitty

We have a few interesting tidbits from the Weta Workshop front. The first is that the The Crafting Of Narnia won Kids Choice award at the NZ Post Book awards for children and young adults! On behalf of NarniaWeb, congratulations to everyone involved with the book. It’s a very well deserved award.
The other bit of news is that they’ve released a new podcast interview Richard Taylor and stuntman Shane Rangi. A good bit of the podcast discusses Shane’s work on Narnia. I haven’t had a chance to listen to the podcast yet, but according to H.M. Swanwhite who wrote in, the interview [with Shane] starts at about 17 minutes and is over an hour long. Check it out here.
UPDATE: I’ve now had a chance to listen to the podcast and it is excellent. The first 20 minutes or so is the interview with Richard Taylor about all of the happenings at Weta right now. The other part of the podcast is an hour long interview with Shane Rangi (who played Otmin and Asterius) and it is fantastic. Definitely well worth listening to if you have the time.
