Location Report – Tribe 5 – Week 6

Some of the cast at the BBQ.

Tribe 5 is into week 7 of production from Monday 9th December 2002 – BUT what happened last week in the production?

You’ll find out below!!

A very busy week last week. All cast were used on Monday for some large group scenes. On Monday night there was a cast barbeque for everyone to catch up plus it was also Michael Wesley Smith’s birthday. Michael is now 19!

The scenes

117 scenes were filmed from Monday to Friday last week, and this totalled over 143 minutes of shooting time! Wow!

The parallel unit was used every single day last week so it was extremely busy with both units filming full days. There were some interesting scenes with Ellie returning but it seems she’s not quite herself.

Lex and Slade –
Are they friends or not?

The locations

Because every day was a parallel day last week there were many locations including Kenepuru Hospital, beside a bridge out at Whitemans Valley, Hutt Valley High School, and some city streets.

Lex’s stunt double?
