With his legendary portrayal of Gollum in the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, Serkis raised motion-capture acting to a completely new level. A computer-animated character filled with so much life had never been seen before. He went on to use his talent for playing unusual characters when he embodied Caesar in the PLANET OF THE APES remake. For his latest project, Serkis went behind the camera to direct the film BREATHE. We look forward to an exciting ZFF Masters session.
