We had a great weekend shooting in Te Aroha despite the lack of continuity provided by the typically changeable New Zealand weather. We filmed in Chances surf shop, and started the big chase scene involving many locations and a lot of precision driving (for me – such fun!!)
The weather wasn’t exactly co-operative, that’s one of the things I really miss about filming in California. With rain about one week of the year weather continuity isn’t much of an issue there. But we filmed between the heaviest rain and figure that Hollywood folk will assume we paid out big for a water truck to wet the streets for aesthetic reasons 🙂
It was a great, but strenuous, weekend for our actors. We know we ask for a lot from them, and they tirelessly come though with great performances. We feel amazingly lucky to have found them. Thanks, guys!!
