A rather lucky man, who just happens to live within camera zoom distance of the Avatar set, got a chance to take a good snap of a night shoot. Here’s what he had to say:
James Cameron is in Wellington at the moment filming his current project, 3D Sci-fi epic Avatar. I live quite close to Stone St Studios, where live action filming is currently happening. This is also where Lord Of The Rings and King Kong were made. Anyway here’s a photo I took tonight from my house. Bear in mind the green screen you can see is four shipping containers high. It’s huge. The thing on the left hand crane looks like a gigantic light. I was right beside it earlier but didn’t have my camera with me, might get a chance tomorrow.
It sounds and looks exciting whatever they are filming. Lets hope he can get some more shots! (Without breaking the law of course)
