      'LORD OF THE RINGS' FX NEWS UPDATED

      In a follow-up to an earlier story, the OneRing.net Web site reported
      more
      details about the special-effects worked farmed out for the first of
      Peter
      Jackson's three upcoming Lord of the Rings films. New Zealand effects
      house
      WETA Digital reportedly subcontracted some work to other FX shops.

      Citing an anonymous source, the site reported that only nine of the
      film's
      estimated 500 FX shots have been farmed out: six to Los Angeles-based
      Digital Domain and three to Australia's Animal Logic. The reason: WETA
      was
      originally signed to produce all 337 FX shots for the first movie, The
      Fellowship of the Ring. But as the film was shot and cut, 150 more shots
      were added to the WETA slate, and WETA found itself at maximum capacity,
      the
      site reported.
