Filming finished a couple of weeks ago and the cast are having a well earned break. In the last week they were here, there were some Xmas celebrations, special lunches, and a fantastic Tribe Xmas photoshoot!
The Post Production Crew are still a few weeks away from finishing up with Tribe III. There are several different Editing areas that have to be brought together for a final mix, which the Executive Producer checks and locks off so it can be dubbed to a master tape and then distributed by Cumulus Distribution (an arm of Cloud 9) to the Broadcasters.

Of course with a new Series – (Atlantis High) coming up there is a lot of preparation involved, including finding/auditioning appropriate cast members, arranging locations, finding a new Crew team, just to name a few.
They are busy designing and building new sets and rooms for the Atlantis High Series. The Cloud 9 studios still have the Mall as the main set from the Tribe which will be staying there for Series IV in planning for 2001.
There is still the Tribe Fan Club that is solely dedicated to all of you Tribe fans out there. There are constant merchandise orders which get sent out from Cloud 9 NZ, a huge amount of emails daily to be answered, fan mail to sort, and of course the `Internet Crew` who even from remote locations at this time of year can update and maintain the website!
Broadcasters orders are made through Cloud 9 UK and then they are passed on to Cloud 9 NZ where they are dubbed into the correct format for the country concerned, arranged with the correct documentation including Scripts (which can then be used for dubbing in an appropriate language for which ever country it is showing in) and Slides (for promotional material).
Countries showing or about to show the Tribe include England, US, Canada, Finland, Croatia, Poland, Germany, Ireland, Denmark, Iceland, Estonia, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Israel, Portugal, Africa, Singapore and of course New Zealand.
