RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

ANDY SERKIS (Caesar) has been working in the film, television and theater industries for over twenty years as an actor, filmmaker, director and pioneer of performance capture. Probably most well known for his performance as Gollum in the acclaimed The Lord of the Rings trilogy and as Kong in King Kong, Serkis has become highly involved in developing the art and craft of performance in the digital realm. He is currently spearheading ‘The Imaginarium,' a London-based studio and academy that aims to service film and games, produce its own material and provide a laboratory for emerging visual and performing artists to explore new performance capture applications.

As a stage actor, Serkis has appeared in over 40 productions in London, and in theatres across Britain, most recently as Iago in Othello by William Shakespeare. On film and television, Serkis has acted in over 60 productions, receiving great acclaim, nominations and awards for his roles, most recently as Albert Einstein in Einstein and Eddington, and for his Golden Globe and BAFTA nominated performance in Longford. Serkis was BAFTA nominated for his role as the legendary British proto-punk Ian Dury in the biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, and starred alongside Simon Pegg in John Landis' Burke & Hare. This year will see the release of Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's movie based on Hergé's French comic book hero Tintin, in which Serkis plays Captain Haddock.

As director, Serkis has worked across all performance media. He directed performances in Ninja Theory/Sony's hit Playstation 3 title Heavenly Sword, setting a new benchmark for emotionally engaging characters in videogames. His second game project was Enslaved, again with Ninja Theory. Serkis directed and produced the short film Snake, and The Double Bass for the stage.

In 2009 Serkis teamed up with producer Jonathan Cavendish (Bridget Jones, Elizabeth: The Golden Age) to form Caveman Films. He has several feature film projects in development and is planning to shoot his feature directorial debut, The Giant in New Zealand in 2011.
