Перевод субтитров Offshorepublic (2012) [offshorepublic.blogspot.com] Most of the stuff I like today is the same thing I used to love when I was a kid. My collections which started when I was 7 or 8 years old are still going. As you can see, these are a few of the kits in my own collection that I've put together. One of my hobbies is collecting high-quality resin kits. from famous movies. And I've got hundreds of them. These are the ones that I've managed to get painted. And there's a lot more in boxes that I haven't yet. I n five years working on Lord of the Rings, one of my dreams. has been to be involved closely with the production of great collectible items. from the film, based on the designs of Weta and Richard Taylor and his gang. The coolest thing about these model kits is that they capture a frozen moment. These collectibles capture a piece of memory. permanently encapsulated. in resin or Polystone, from a film. As a collector myself, I really had the desire. to try and create high-quality Polystone statuettes. So that they would capture both the flavor and essence of the character. of the actor, but also show the detail, and hopefully artistic beauty. of the craft that went into the costuming, armour and weapons. Usually, collectibles based on movies are sort of made by licensees. They're made by toy manufacturers who do this for a living. All they do is make toys, and they buy the licenses from various film studios. We wanted to do something that I don't think has been done before.

which is to have the model collectible figures. made by the same artists that actually worked on the movie. I really love the idea that through Weta, we could take our favorite moments. from these epic films and present them as beautiful pieces of sculpture. So Gollum is sculpted by the person that sculpted Gollum for the film. And the characters are based on what was done in the workshop. and it's almost like the final collectible figure is the final version. of that character and sculpted by the Weta crew for posterity's sake. Viggo, look at the detail in the fingers. Look at the lines in the hands. I worked with Christopher Lee one day, and he waved to me. That's exactly what the bottom of his hand looks like. When we first presented the idea to the cast of Lord of the Rings. that we wanted to produce our own line of collectibles here at Weta. this was before we had even had the good fortune of meeting Sideshow. we were overwhelmed by their enthusiasm. Go Weta. Go Weta. Across the other side of the world at exactly the same time. Sideshow, already being an established merchandising company. was looking for an opportunity to gain a piece. .of the Lord of the Rings merchandising pie. Our effort at Sideshow has been to find a partner. that could help us to achieve a level of authenticity. that would allow us to bring to market figure collectibles. that would be of the highest quality.

but also highly representative of what you see on film. And through a mutual friend, Gino Acevedo. who works with me here at Weta, we forged a relationship. Now, Gino Acevedo is a personal friend of mine. and was the supervisor of the makeup effects on the film. And during a holiday in the U.S., a short break from the film. I invited him over to our studio and we discussed the possibility. of what it would be like to partner with Weta in the making of this product. Greg got ahold of me. I said, "Richard Taylor wants to do the same thing. You guys gotta get together. " The fact that we partnered with Weta. and Weta was creating the figure collectibles simultaneous. with the last months of the shooting of the film. allowed them to invite some of the actors and actresses. into their studio to critique their work. but also to support and encourage them about poses. and certain looks or expressions that they were trying to achieve. or thought were more iconic for what their character represented. Slightly forward, but not completely. Kind of. We could go on set, discuss the certain pose. The actors would pose for us so we could get a whole array of photographs. And then even cooler than that. a number of the actors would return to Weta and sit for us. sit for their actual sculptures, so we could sculpt from life.

Well, I think what I should do is, I should do a few poses for you. Sir Ian McKellen was incredibly generous with his assistance. and help in us getting his pieces correct. And it was just a wonderful opportunity. that afforded us to become closer even still. .to the amazing people that have made the talent on Lord of the Rings. So the task was set to the sculptors that work here at Weta Workshop. to bring these creations to life. through very, very fine sculpting from life. and really deliver to the collector a piece that is not a xerox. but rather is a fine-art sculpture of the actor that played the part in the film. Good work. Cool. Thank you, it's been cool. You can imagine, being effects workshop technicians, we don't get out much. So to have the actors responding so warmly. to the pieces we had done was truly fantastic. How's it going? Going good. Yeah. Almost there. When people went to The Two Towers, what surprised them most was Gollum. He took a lot of people by surprise. And so that felt like a natural to be a character. .that's included in The Two Towers Special Edition video. We couldn't make up our mind whether we wanted to have Gollum or Smeagol. Because, obviously, he has this dual personality. So we've come up with this concept of releasing Smeagol in the box set. but giving people an opportunity to also collect Gollum if they so wish. And the two of them are designed as bookends. so you can actually have Gollum on one side, Smeagol on the other. Basically sitting on the same rock, holding the same fish. but in two very distinctive poses, which represent each character. And so Gollum/Smeagol just felt right for this collectibles box. so we sculpted a first sculpture. Jamie Beswarick sculpted it. It was very, very carefully art-directed by Peter. Because Peter had a very, very specific and strong vision. of the piece that he loved from the film. that he thought we should best represent. We wanted to have a character that represented Gollum from the books. and didn't just represent a scene that we'd created for the movie. We wanted it to be Gollum as we all know him. We thought about where in the movie should our pose come from. Should it represent, you know, which particular piece of the film? And I think the scene where he's got the fish by the pool. he's about to get lured into captivity. The Forbidden Pool, it's called. I thought that one. captured the Gollum from the book almost more successfully than any other. To catch a fish So juicy sweet He's just at his happiest, really. He's been freed, and it's just the moment of slight suspicion. as Frodo's asking him to come with him. Smeagol. Master is here. So the moment that we've tried to capture with this sculpture. is that moment where Smeagol first hears his master's voice. And he's got the fish, he was about to take a bite. and then his attention's caught. Come, Smeagol. Trust master. Come. We must go now? Smeagol, you must trust master. Follow me. Come on. Come, Smeagol.

Nice Smeagol. That's it. Come on. That was one of the first fully skinned and rendered and lit Gollum shots. funnily enough, that everybody went crazy about when they saw it. I just remember going down to animation and had a look. and everybody was going, "That is it. We've at last cracked it. " It was quite late in the process. Precious. Our design process starts with drawing. Illustration. Conceptual design. As soon as we have the essence of what we're trying to achieve. it then goes straight to sculpting. We call them "three-dimensional maquettes. " They're little sketches in Plasticine that will suggest in 3-D. the essence of what the sculpture will ultimately try and capture. Once we've got that working, we then go to the final sculpt. I n the beginning, it was quite tricky figuring out who would get to do which piece. because everyone was keen on certain pieces. But due to the goodwill of everyone that was working at the Weta Workshop. they ultimately bargained with each other. till everyone was happy with the pieces they were doing. The Weta Workshop is an amazing facility. and Richard Taylor is like the father figure for everybody. The whole place is a big family. We live together like a family here. We fight like a family. But it's great, and the amount of talent that's here in the workshop is incredible. Yeah, what you're voting on here is whether you like. Once the sculpture's finished, and we have all had a group discussion. about whether we consider it ready to mold. because at that point, everyone gets involved. Everyone's allowed to critique on each other's sculptures. Yeah. That one works really well. It's brilliant. We then take it to the molding shop. Jason Docherty, our workshop supervisor. then supervises the very, very careful task of molding it. A bad mold can destroy a beautiful sculpture. So a perfect mold has to be made. As much care as is put into the sculpture is put into the mold.

It then goes through to Pietro Marson's workshop. where he does all of the urethane castings. He produces the masters out of the silicone mold. He uses a two-part, non-expanding urethane. And with that material, using a vacuum chamber. to make sure we get no air bubbles. we start to produce the original masters. Then it goes through to David Tremont's department. He does all the finished cleanup work on the pieces. and makes sure that they have no seams or no final little bubbles. He primes them with a gray primer. then three of them are sent up to Gino's room. Gino Acevedo is our senior prosthetic supervisor. but Gino also designs all the color schemes of the creatures we do at Weta. While I was trying to come up with a paint scheme, we had conversations about. following the books and the story. about where Gollum was living in the caves and stuff. So we thought, "He should be very pale since he doesn't get out in the sun much. " And in the skin, he would have a lot of rashes and things, Peter wanted. Because Peter wanted him to be scratching every now and then. And then with the fish, we've added some things. like a very high gloss to the fish so it looks nice and wet. And the same with his eyes. So from all that, all that gets transferred. into the little collectible we have here that's gonna be out on the D VD. David, meanwhile, continues to make the mold masters back in his workshop. He probably will make 60 in all. These are the master copies that multiple molds will be taken from. to allow us to replicate such a massive number of pieces. Every piece is hand-painted. They've got an amazing team at the factories. They've got people with paintbrushes and airbrushes. sitting there, very delicately painting little details on the pieces. It was amazing. I think it's excellent. The actors, being so different ultimately, reacted in such a different way. from the most outrageous responses to what we had sculpted for them. to the most complimentary and beautiful comments. Look at that. Gorgeous on the neck. Right in there. I love it. I was around when the sculpt of Brad Dourif came on set. because it was actually Brad's last day on our shoot. He was about to leave. I think he'd just about finished his last shot. and was getting changed and gonna say goodbye to get on his airplane. and the Weta folk had just finished sculpting the bust of Wormtongue. and they rushed it onto the set so he could have a look. It's a beautiful sculpt. It's exactly like him. He was very happy with it. Really beautiful. Wonderful work. Thank you very much. For instance, like with the Aragorn figure. Viggo would come in here. and he would show me the areas on his hand where he had cuts and scars. and where he had Orc blood splattered onto his face as you can see here. Even the fine details. Even the mud splatters and stuff that's on his cloak. He would tell me the colors of mud that were on there. and the areas that it was splattered on. Even on the sword. At one time, I had too much blood on there. and he goes, "No, that's too much. Take some off. " And it was just fantastic to be able to have the cast come here. to give all the specifics on everything and all the fine details. I think people like Sir Ian McKellen really appreciated that Jamie Beswarick. in the sculptures he was doing of Ian, was spending hours, days, weeks. pondering and finessing tiny moments within the face of Ian. And Ian really seemed to appreciate. that we cared so much about creating a perfect sculpture of him. And Ian played a huge part. in the art direction of his particular character and look in the piece. Handled with dignity, a Dwarf will last for 1200 years. John Rhys-Davies, who plays Gimli, got to know him very, very well. Myself and Dominie Till were the makeup artists who did John's makeup. and John's makeup in the film took four and a half hours to do each day. And he loved every minute of it. And Bill Hunt, who sculpted this piece, just captured the perfect look of Gimli. And we had plenty of reference, of course, with all the photos. We've got all the prosthetics and everything here. The other huge advantage to doing these collectibles. is that you can't get any better reference than the real stuff. Christopher Lee immediately wanted one. It was so nice. We did a bronze of Christopher's Saruman incanting over the palantir. We had done one for ourselves, and he very kindly signed the base. but was adamant that he had to have one on his mantelpiece. He'd said to me at one stage, "Son, many people have tried to capture my likeness. and sent me models of myself, and I've never wanted one of them. but your one I'll be happy to have on the mantelpiece. " And I thought that was really lovely. What a compliment. They are completely addictive, and I have only got a very small collection. much to my wife's happiness. I've got the Gandalf bust, I've got the little Frody. The Ringwraith on the steed is my favorite. Also, I've got that beautiful plaque. of the Ringwraith looking over and the four Hobbits underneath. I think that's one of Pete's favorites. He really adores that one. The collectibles have afforded us the opportunity to present this detail. this culture, for closer inspection. and for the true fans of the films and of the books. to better appreciate how we were wishing to represent. such a rich array of cultures that Tolkien wrote of. It would be interesting to know, really, where the concept of 3-D collectibles. for the film industry came from. I've seen very old pieces from, say, the Charlie Chaplin merchandising.

where obviously some entrepreneurial artist. was creating three-dimensional effigies of these characters. either through porcelain or fired clay. and then ultimately into Bakelite and plastic. It really has become almost as much a culture as movie-watching. as people that have seen the films. want to continue on and own a little special part. Richard Taylor and Peter Jackson. are two of the largest figure-collectible fans in the Southern Hemisphere. My particular passion is to collect what used to be called "garage kits. " These were mostly resin models sculpted by enthusiasts. and then poured out of silicone molds in garages all over the world. Richard's got a few more painted than I have. Mine are sitting there. Some are made.

Some have got primer on them. Some are painted, and a lot aren't. A lot of them are just sitting there in boxes waiting for the day that I retire. Which, who knows, could be, like, five, six months away. To me, they're beautiful pieces of art. I actually even have them in my will for my son. I think of them in such a special way. It's an interesting situation where there's been a shift in the last two or three years. from kits that you buy unpainted, where you have to glue them up yourself. and fill out the seams and finish them and then paint them. to ones that are pre-cast, pre-painted. There's people that love model-making. There's people that like collecting them. and having them on their shelf as a souvenir of the film. The 3-D collectibles created by Sideshow/Weta are a celebration. of the broad spectrum of characters originally created by Tolkien. and the amazing work created by Weta Workshop for the film. We had a range of figures. Six scale figures, standing about 12 inches tall. that would be the actors or the creatures, the Orcs, the Uruk-hai. in their full armour with their weapons.

in poses that represented their moods from the film. Certain scenes from the film. Then we'd create a range of busts. The busts would be like classical Roman busts. painted to better study the detail and the culture. of the costuming of these characters. We did a series of plaques, ranging from small, round, medallion-like plaques. that captured little moments in bronze from the film. We also created environments. taking beautiful sets and locations from the film. and sculpted these in fine detail. Over and above that, we also thought people would enjoy collecting plaques. that showed all of the weapons of Middle-earth. So we created a set that represented these things. And then on top of all of this, we thought it would be neat to do very limited edition. special pieces of some of the more outrageous creatures of Middle-earth. When all is said and done, Sideshow/Weta Collectibles. will have produced nearly 200 different items based upon Peter Jackson's trilogy. I n the process, we believe we have managed to create a really rich. and beautiful array of collectibles that any fan can now enjoy. and find a piece that suits their particular memories of the film. Prior to the release of The Fellowship of the Ring. and the release of the Sideshow/Weta Collectibles. Helen Clark, prime minister of New Zealand. was invited to Weta Workshop to review the line and to give it her blessing. All right. Launching the collectibles. They are totally unique because the same artists who worked on the conceptions. and worked from conceptual drawings through sculptures. through seeing it worked up into what you see in the film. are the same people producing these works of art. And so they are completely authentic. When you're creating any sculptural piece, ultimately, what you're trying to do. is touch the viewer emotionally by the intention within the sculpture. Because they are moments of time. They are moments of time. Absolutely. Caught exactly like the Gollum one, you know. The Gollum collectible is going to be a favorite. I think that he's a really cool figure.
