Why we choose Wellington

Weta Founders talk about why they choose to live and run their companies in Wellington, New Zealand, and why Wellington is a great place for innovative digital and creative companies.

“Wellington is arguably one of the most creative and dynamic cities in the world. It attracts amazing people from across the world who just want to hang out, do cool stuff and make their mark in the entertainment industry.”

When Weta founders Sir Richard Taylor and Tania Rogers moved from the country to Wellington over 25 years ago, they thought that Wellington was the biggest city in the world.

Since then, they've traveled 'a bit' more and realise that even though we're [Wellington] a fairly small place in the world, we're delivering so far above the scale of the population and that it's a neat place to live and work.

Working with you every step of the way.
