Celluloid Castle

Ringer Spy Robbit the Hobbit sends in the latest from ‘Wellington Reporter’, very cool castle ruin pic!

This is a photo from the front page of last night’s Evening Post. These ‘ruins’ are causing quite a bit of discussion. Since this photo was taken, the rest of arches and wall visible have been painted black. Could this be part of Minas Tirith, destroyed by fire? Or is it Minas Morgul? The rest of the set is made to look like old crumbling masonry. To the right of the arches in the photo are a couple of very large archways, one of which is in ruins. There is also a large set of steps about 8 metres wide, by 3 metres high. A tunnel runs under the steps. Behind the arches in the photo is a large domed stucture. In front of the large arches is a wall with arches similar to the ones in the photo. It appears that they are building streets within the set, so i would guess that if they are going to this much detail, this set will be used for some major scenes.

All about the set are parts of walls, arches, pillars, steps etc. Most of these appear to be recycled bits from other sets. There are a few holes in the ground about the set, and these are very curious. I wonder what they are for? By the looks of things, this set will be huge when it is finished. There is a huge blue screen behind the arches, and it is being extended to curve around the side of the set.

Kerish Reports In

Ringer Spy Kerish reports in with more info on a set he/she/it has visited recently!

It appears its not to be a village that they are building but actually a castle! It looks pretty huge and that balcony that I spoke of a while back has been nicely damaged to give it that ruined effect. Strange really on what they’re filming there. Did I mention the steps I saw them making 2 weeks back? no? ok They had some steps in constuction on the side of the set, about 6 foot high by about 5 or 6 meters in length, about 4 meters width. That has been completed and is fixed to the main set. The whole thing is now stretched over most of the site with the closed part (the steps) about 10 meters from the fence line. the blue screen has been stretched in a half circle at the only end thats visible now and has some odd looking paint marking across them (they look like really large bricks (perhapes an indication of what they intend to cover the screen with next?)They haven’t finished the set yet, but I’ll be up there in a few more days (hopefully with no builders about) so I may go in and take another nosey.

Take a look at the pics from Kerish’s last report!
