Well, a slow news day coincides with an email drawing our attention to another fantasy film being shot in NZ – seems there’s more than one sorcerous epic haunting our backwoods. More modest than the Rings, in fact it’s closer to the scale of the Ancanar project in California, but after checking out their website I’ve got hopes for it.
This looks like dedicated, honest filmmaking based on a story that would interest a lot of us fantasy buffs.
If you want to check out more about this little indie film, their stylish website tells you more. Song of the Hunted
(Some of the backdrops explain to me why people kept phoning me to say the ‘Rings’ was being shot within half an hour of my place. I wish!)
