Hobbits, superheroes put magic in NZ film industry - Article Photos 6/6

In this Nov. 14,2012 photo, Weta Digital director Joe Letteri stands in the offices of the company's Wellington studios in New Zealand. Weta Digital is the centerpiece of a filmmaking empire that Peter Jackson and close collaborators have built in his New Zealand hometown, realizing his dream of bringing a slice of Hollywood to Wellington. It’s a one-stop shop for making major movies - not only his own, but other blockbusters like “Avatar” and “The Avengers” and hoped-for blockbusters like next year’s “Man of Steel.” (AP Photo/Nick Perry)
