At the O'Reilly Open Source Convention, July 7-11,
2003, in Portland:


Tales From the Two Towers
Milton Ngan, Weta Digital Ltd

Track: Keynote
Date: Friday, July 11
Time: 12:15pm - 1:00pm
Location: Oregon Ballroom 

At last year's OSCon, Ngan gave an overview of the 
challenges he faced producing the visual effects for
"The Fellowship of the Ring" and the challenges Weta
Digital faced by choosing to use open source
technology. This year, Ngan shows even more of the
challenges involved with making "The Two Towers," from
the creation of Gollum to how he managed the terabytes
of storage used on the film. He also gives a bit more
insight into the growth of Weta from the 20-30 person
facility it was at the end of "The Frighteners" in
to the 300-400 person facility it became at the peak
of 2002.
