I am Joe Letteri, senior visual effects supervisor and Director of the Academy Award-winning Weta Digital studio. You might know my work from LOTR, Avatar, The Hobbit, King Kong or both Planet of the Apes - AMA!
My name's Joe Letteri, and you might recognize my VFX work with Weta Digital from such films as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies... although there are a lot of titles on that list!
I'm looking forward to answering as many of your questions as I can today. Victoria will be assisting me via phone.
Update: Well, I appreciate the questions that everyone's been asking. They show that people are really paying attention to the work that's being done in visual FX, and how they fit and affect the storytelling. So I think that is impressive, and I hope everyone continues to enjoy the work that we do, and hopefully continue to keep it going at this level!
