LEAGUECAST – Bonus NYCC Interview: NICK KELLER & PAUL TOBIN Of Weta Workshop


Greetings, Leaguers! As promised in episode #45 of the LeagueCast, here’s supplemental podcast #1, featuring an interview with Weta Workshop conceptual artists Nick Keller and Paul Tobin, conducted inside the Weta booth on the NYCC show floor. These two amazing artists designed weapons, armor, and creatures for Avatar and The Hobbit films, including the famous sword Orchrist! The guys answer questions about what some of their favorite designs are, how heartbroken they get if Peter Jackson doesn’t pick their favorite pieces for the films, and get into some interesting details about Guillermo Del Toro’s scrapped version of Middle Earth, and lots more!

Adam Moreau is a television advertising salesman by day and a geek by night (some would argue he's still a geek during the day). Growing up, he developed his love for film through trips to the movies, his local video store, hours of HBO, and further viewings of horrible copies of those same video store movies. These days, he watches more movies and TV than he has time for. In fact, he's probably watching something right now. He is married, has two kids, and is raising them in the ways of the Force.
