Aaron Sims Company worked closely with Weta to create the final looks seen in both Apes films. ASC designed all of the main and ancillary ape characters from the ground up for the first film, 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. We sculpted a bust for Caesar as well, to ensure a hyper-realistic feel.  In Dawn, ASC worked on aging the apes and creating the apes’ ceremonial look, which includes face paint and other ornamentation taken from nature.
