Making Of Gollum, The Goblin King and Azog - The Hobbit By Weta Digital
With Peter Jackson's first installment of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' garnering three FX related Oscar nominations for visuals, New Zealand's famous WETA workshop just recently released a few featurettes explaining how they advanced the visuals to an all new level.
The videos showcase how they improved the tech for Gollum, allowing Andy Serkis' amazing character acting to come through even further, Azog the white warg rider and the memorable Goblin King. If you happen to have an iPad, WETA also just recently released an 85 page iBook for free related to the making of the film.
