Filming At Ruapehu

June 16, 2002 at 3:21 pm by xoanon  - 

Not too long ago Sean Astin (Sam), Elijah Wood (Frodo) and Andy Serkis (Gollum) tramped their way up Mt. Ruapehu near Tongariro National Park on the North Island of New Zealand. They were filming scenes for ‘The Two Towers’ in which the two Hobbits follow Gollum towards Mordor.

The only problem is, the hot Middle-earth sun near Mordor would be no place for snow..and Mt. Ruapehu is currently covered with it!

So what’s do be done when you need to get rid of snow over rocks and grass and rough terrain? You call in the fire department and have them wash it away! Take a look at this great pic from R who got up close and personal with the folks transforming New Zealand to Middle-earth. Be sure to look for this terrain when you see ‘The Two Towers’!
