Tribe Series 4 Location Report – Week nine

It’s a Rockin’ and a Rollin’ in Aoteroa!

The lovely Laura Wilson – May in the Tribe and Jet in Atlantis High – came in on Monday to chat with fans on the Atlantis High site. She had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed her live telephone call with a competition winner. Laura signed some autographs, answered her fan mail and did a little bit of filming around the office for you to see exclusively at some stage!

Michelle Ang came in to chat with fans on the Tribeworld BB. She was as bright as a bird at 8am and full of the joys of spring. Michelle answered a heap of fan mail and was put to work filling out questionnaires.

Two tours went round the studios and the post production department. The tours were for local film students who were fascinated to see the facilities at Cloud 9.

Some of the cast members spent a lot of time in the classroom this week whilst others filled out some questionnaires so that you can learn a little bit more about them. And some of the cast spent some time in the ADR suite (Additional Dialogue Requirements) to re-record some dialogue.

Spooky Halloween piccies were snapped of the cast, so look out for them soon on Tribeworld.

The scenes

105 scenes were filmed this week which makes a total of 67.60 minutes.The Parallel unit was used for 3 days out of 5 and several extras were used.

Filming on location took place at Whiteman’s Valley Farm, Keneperu Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Park, as well as Reception at Cloud 9! The 2 studios were also used by both units this week.

Photo 2 shows us a bar set up at Whitemans Valley Farm.

Make a start!

The earliest Crew Call was 06.30am for the lighting guys who had to pre-light the set before the other cast and crew arrived.

Of course the make-up and unit (catering) teams have to start earlier than the rest of the crew and their earliest dawn was at 06.05 am and 05.45am respectively!

The latest wrap was at 19.45pm for the cast and crew who were filming on location.

The earliest call for our cast was 05.30am for Jaimee Kaire Gataulu – Cloe, closely followed by Beth Allen – Amber, at 05.35am! And the lucky cast member who had the longest lie-in this week was Monique Cassie who didn’t get picked up one day until 12.50pm!

Keneperu Hospital is the place for Photo 3. At least it’s a good place to be if anybody got hurt in the filmng of this boxing scene!
