You`ll find out below…

More exclusive Series 3 photos!

Once again we have exclusive photos of our cast members. Seen in this picture with members of the Tribe crew getting ready to shoot the scene.

The scenes

Three of the five days were parallel days last week. So the sleep our cast caught up on last week was once again lost into the darkness of some very early chilly mornings. A whopping total of 60 scenes which totals only approximately one and a half Tribe episodes of screen time after about 90 hours of shooting time.

The locations

With the usual on set stuff happening the cast and crew ventured forth into the very chilly winter mornings of a Wellington winter. Some mornings have been so cold that you have to scrap the ice off your car window before you can go anywhere. The furthermost distant from the Cloud 9 production base was a beach 30kms away.

Make a start

The earliest crew call was 07.30 am with wardrobe having a 5.30am start. The earilest call for our cast was Dwayne Cameron again who had a 5.30am pick up.


Although most of the week we had beautiful weather, except of course for those freezing cold mornings!

Here`s the record of the weather in week 5 of the production:

  • Monday 31st July – Possible showers and light winds
