Weta Workshop Surprise!
Think Tank is quite fond of the work and mindset at Weta. We’re one of a few schools who teach their Mari 3D texturing software. We also have multiple sculpts of theirs on display throughout our facility. It’s safe to say we love everything they do. So you can bet we were over the moon when they sent us a batch of swag and goodies that included a custom book, t-shirt and necklaces. Just look at how ecstatic the second semester students are about it!
