NZ TV News shows a glimpse of the first day’s filming.
Everyone in NZ who was watching the evening news got to see a bit of the first day’s filming. We’ll look at ways to post a video clip of the TV news on the website, but meanwhile, we have a juicy monster spy report describing what was seen.
Filming began on Mt. Victoria, a wooded hill in the middle of Wellington. The reporters were not able to get as close as they…as YOU would have liked, but some joggers were interviewed after they’d charged blindly right through the set. And producer Tim Sanders was quite talkative by (LOTR film standards)when interviewed.
