Two or three years ago this sort of technological wizardry would have
received extensive coverage on the major TV news nets in the U.S. Now you
have to dig for such coverage.

The current edition of "Adelantos," CNN en Español's science and technology
program features an interview with actor Andy Serkis along with video
showing the various techniques involved in creating gollum, a mixture of
acting and technology. The program will air Monday several times from 1:30
am until early evening. Although the original interview was done in English,
the only version that will air is the Spanish version with translation.

The network's schedule is here:

Interesting to see that it wasn't just digital animation but a
convergence of acting with technologically enhanced art.
