New Zealand LOTR
Just to let you know there has been quite a bit of coverage
here in New Zealand about the Lord of the Rings.
Last night, TV3 had an interview with the LOTR publicist and they managed to capture
footage of fighting on Tongariro. It appeared to be Orcs rehearsing, although they didn't
have their masks on so they may have been humans.
Also this morning on my way to work I was listening to Holmes, a National Radio program,
and they had an interview with the producer of LOTR. I forget his name, it was Bill Mc
Gowan or something like that. It was quite an in-depth interview and he talked about how
closely they were following the script, Peter Jackson and his relationship with the stars,
and what sort of caravans the stars got.
