You`ll find out below…

More exclusive Series 3 photos!

Okay – here is the first exclusive Series 3 shot of Lex (Caleb Ross). The picture was taken during week four in New Zealand. As you can see Lex is not too different to how he was in Series 2. But as usual he is bound to have some surprises up his sleeve!

The scenes

There was only one parallel day last week, which was great for cast and crew alike to catch up on some much needed rest.

The locations

As usual there was interior shooting on the Tribe sets and two location days. The location days were both approximately 25 minutes away from the Cloud 9. For any of you who have seen Cloud 9`s Swiss Family Robinson, you may recognise the location. A picture of the location area is at the bottom of this report.

Make a start

The earliest crew call was 07.30 am. The earilest call for our cast was Dwayne Cameron who had a 5.20am pick up.


Although most of the week we had beautiful weather, the day location shooting started the weather turned sour and the cast and crew were called back to the production base in the afternoon. This meant everyone was back to the location the following day to finish shooting the exterior scenes. Luckily the weather held out for this.

Here`s the record of the weather in week 4 of the production:

  • Monday 24th July – Light winds and cloudy
  • Tuesday 25th July – cloudy at times with gusty north to north-west winds
  • Wednesday 26th July – Cloudy at times with sunny breaks and gusty northerly winds
  • Thursday 27th July – Drizzle turning to rain in the afternoon. Strong gusty northerlies.
  • Friday 28th July – Rain at times with gusty northerlies.
  • More next week…
