More exclusive photos!

This photo is of the Rail Yards in Gracefield. Spraypainting graffiti was just one of the many jobs to be done before shooting could begin as well as positioning the cameras plus a whole lot more.

The scenes

We had two location days last week and one parallel day, as well as more publicity tours including the Auckland Christmas Parade and the Special Needs Childrens Xmas Party. 60 scenes were shot last week, totaling 54 minutes of shooting time.

The locations

There were two location days last week, Monday and Thursday. The cast and crew were filming at Whiteman’s Valley, our studio carpark and the Rail Yards.

This photo is from the rail yards, and shows some of the extras for the day.

The location days were busy with three locations in just two days.

Last week we had Toby Hanford come and visit Cloud 9. He won a competition with Lakeland Taupo Radio Station. Here`s a picture of Toby after his makeover and Caleb.

Sunday, the cast took part in the Auckland Xmas Parade much to the delight of everyone who attended. The Locos Police car toured the parade route with cast members in it, on scooters, rollerblades and walking alongside handing out various Tribe items. They also did a performance of three songs off the new Tribe Album.

Saturday, the cast performed at the Special Needs Childrens Xmas Party in Wellington. It was a great day filled with loads of entertainment for special needs children.

And so it was a rather busy week for all the cast and crew.

Make a start

The Crew Call all week was 7.30am. The earliest call for our cast was 04.50am for one of our Guest Cast, on Thursday the Parallel location day. The lucky cast member with the latest pick up this week Jacob Tomuri – LIEUTENANT LUKE with a 02.25pm pickup.
