Charles Tait joined Weta Digital in 2000 as a Senior Compositor on The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. In 2004, he was promoted to Compositing Supervisor and spent a year designing the look of King Kong’s rampage through New York in King Kong. Now, he has over 50 credits to his name, including Avatar, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Adventures of Tintin (during which he became Head of Compositing), and Prometheus. Charles transitioned into a Visual Effects Supervisor role on The Hobbit trilogy and worked on Deadpool, Avengers: Infinity War, Alita: Battle Angel, Game of Thrones, and, most recently, Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
I recently had the chance to speak to Charlie about Weta Digital’s work on the Disney+ series and how they brought Sam Wilson’s high-flying action scenes to life.
