Sir Richard Taylor is the co-founder of the world renowned WETA Workshop. His credits to date include five Oscars, four BAFTAs and a raft of other international entertainment awards. Sir Richard has a long history of working with China, which extends from model making, to film and TV productions, to designing major location based experiences.

In this podcast, you will hear about Sir Richard’s fascinating China journey, from the seminal childhood moment that acted as a catalyst for his love of sculpture, to the partnership that kick-started his engagement with China. Sir Richard has not only been a driving force behind a raft of creative endeavours, but has also played an unique role in bridging two cultures and two peoples.
