Visual Effects Supervisor at Weta Digital
Erik came to Wellington in 2002 to work as a compositor on The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
Erik’s first supervisory roles at Weta Digital were on I, Robot and Peter Jackson’s remake of King Kong, where he supervised the jungle sequences, notably Kong’s frenetic battle with three savage ‘V-Rexes’, a sequence that was nominated for a VES award for Compositing in 2005.
His credits as a VFX Supervisor include Avatar, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. He has been very involved with integrating Weta Digital’s cutting-edge performance capture technology into the production workflow, integrating digital performances into physical sets. His more recent work was on Legendary’s action-thriller Spectral, War for the Planet of the Apes, and Rampage.
