Will writes: I was in parliment today (NZ) and during parlimently questions Jim Anderton (minister of economic development) mentioned LOTR’s winning 5 BAFTA’s. He also went on to mention something about WETA‘s Richard Taylor doing some kind of workshop in Christchurch.

He mentioned it would be open to the public and for those who miss it, it will be broadcast on TV

I did a bit more investigation and found out all I could about what WETA is doing in Christchurch.

It is to do with business development and innovation. And will include a public forum entitled “Lord of the Rings – the Innovation Story”. The following is a summary of when and where this takes place.
