Otago Daily Times: Secrecy Surrounds Hobbit filming

From Otago Daily Times: Up to 250 members of The Hobbit film crew were working on Treble Cone, in the Matukituki Valley, yesterday but those in charge were keeping mum about who was in town and what part of J.R.R. Tolkein’s popular story was being filmed.

The second production unit of Peter Jackson’s company, 3Foot7 Ltd, began setting up camp in a Cattle Flat Station paddock at the base of the Treble Cone ski area access road on Monday.

The film crew began arriving on Tuesday for a single day’s filming, but visitors were kept out by security guards.

Unit manager Belinda Lee Hope apologised for having to decline to give any details about the unit’s activities, but said she could understand if locals were excited about the film crew being in the area and that Wanaka locations could appear in the film. more..
