The Making of ‘Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War’ – Weta Workshop [Video]

September 19th, 2017 No comments

I have posted many photos of this exhibit from our recent trip to New Zealand and we found this “making of” video from when the exhibit originally opened in 2015. It gives some great insight into the creation of both the story and the exhibit itself and provides some sense of scale for the sculptures I have posted here.

The Making of 'Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War'

To mark the World War I centenary, Te Papa has joined forces with Weta Workshop to take you back to Gallipoli. Experience the triumphs and countless tragedies of this 8-month campaign through the eyes and words of the ordinary New Zealanders who were there.
