Last Day at Tippett + King Kong

Wait? What? yes... today marks my last day at Tippett Studio... :( (for now). After 2 and 1/2 years working at one hell of an amazing studio, I'll be packing my bags and heading down to Skull Island (New Zealand) to help complete work on "King Kong" for Weta Digital!?!

I have completed my work on Disney's "The Shaggy Dog" and the timing worked out for me to take on this opportunity to visit New Zealand and work on King Kong for a couple of months. Tippett was awarded a dozen more shots, so the show has been extended, I'll be looking forward to see how the new shots turn out.

I plan to return to Tippett once my Weta gig is up in the second week of November. So after some travels I should be back in December sometime. I'll be flying out on Wednesday, August 31rst and arrive in Wellington, New Zealand on Friday, September 2nd about 8am NZ local time. So my first day at Weta will be on September 5th. I'm crazy excited to get over there and work my a$$ off. It's going to be crazy, but one hell of a ride!
