Eyewitness report of Gandalf at Wingate.
Recently we helped a French Tolkien fan find the Wingate set, and he sent us this report:
“… since last tuesday I`ve found the location and it`s really great. Hey you know there is a big blue screen with some ruines; all the set is in the water like a river. Tuesday they was shooting scenes with six horses, one with Gandalf the White, another with Aragorn, Legolas, Merry, Pippin and Gimli.
The costumes are so great.
They have shoot an other scene with only Aragorn and Gandalf. Yesterday I went to wingate but I`ve just stay one hour because the security guard told me that the crew could call the police. I just saw they were shooting a scene like Tuesday but gandalf was talking. I hope today and the other day I could watch interesting scenes….thanks a lot for your help.
Thanks to Didier for that.Posted in Old Spy Reports on August 10, 2000 by Tehanu
