With Peter Jackson and the LOTR Trilogy, King Kong and other smaller budget movies ... Wellington has now become more movie friendly at the start end of the process. I came across this crew filming in Stout Street and Lambton Quay. They had been up since 5am getting gear ready, generators, track etc probably working all day to do 30 minutes shooting for 10 secs screen time.. thats the move business.
This was all going on while the general public went about their business shopping. The actors were all standing in position getting cold in the wind waiting for "ACTION"
