Wētā Workshop's Richard Taylor demonstrates techniques that his team of artists use to create the rocky landscapes of scale model bigatures like the one on display at Wētā Workshop Unleashed. Adam tries his hand at some foam polystyrene carving and marvels at the castings of real rock that Wētā Workshop has long used since the fabrication of bigatures for Lord of the Rings!
