Weta presents The Art of The Adventures of Tintin, a new book for Paramount Pictures' motion capture animated film, The Adventures of Tintin (see our story HERE).
The Art of The Adventures of Tintin was created by the actual Weta artists who brought Hergé's Tintin characters to the big screen. From early concept illustrations to final shots from the film and everything in between, this book gives fans a rare glimpse of the creativity that goes into making a film like this a reality. The book also features forewards from Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson. Oscar winners Joe Letteri and Richard Taylor share their insights as well.
The Art of The Adventures of Tintin will be published by HarperCollins Publishers in the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand simultaneously on October 13th in two formats: a 200-page hardcover book and a digital e-book. The e-book will include additional imagery, special audio commentary from the film makers, character animations and extra content.
Those that pre-order the book directly through Weta at wetanz.com ($39.99) will receive, while supplies last, three "parchment scrolls" (printed on semi-transparent paper - pictured below) that together form the map to Red Rackham's Treasure. These come inserted in a folder made of 300 gsm paper printed in the likeness of Tintin's wallet.
