Wellington’s double-Oscar winning special effects whiz Richard Taylor will receive an honorary Doctor of Literature degree from Victoria University. Mr Taylor is the co-founder of Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, one of the most successful special effects studios in the world which produced the award-winning effects for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. Victoria University vice-chancellor Stuart McCutcheon said Mr Taylor had overcome many hurdles to become an internationally recognised leader in design and was a worthy recipient of an honorary doctorate.
