Ringer Spy Painty sends in some great, if grainy, pics from the Minas Tirith set. Built right on the same set as Helms Deep, at the Hayward Hills set in Upper Hutt.
I apologise for the slight grain. I used a video camera as I don’t have a digital still camera and then used Premiere to frame grab for me. If I had used a standard camera we would all be waiting for the developing and I think the movie would be out before that!
You can see from the photo that they are modifying the existing Helms Deep set. On the wide picture, it looks like the are building the main gate.
