Tribe Series 4 Location Report – Week ten

Summertime is on it’s way…the sun is finally shining in New Zealand!

Todd Emerson participated in a live Bulletin Board chat for the Atlantis Hogh site on Monday. He spoke to us from his bed in Auckland which was a very different way of doing things! Todd really enjoyed his first ever Bulletin Board appearance and even got a bit philosophical with some of his answers.

We enjoyed the company of several of the cast members this week, old and new. They came to see us to fill out some questionnaires, have some photos taken and give audio interviews so that you can see more of them on the site soon.

Two tours went round the studios and the post production department.

Quite a bit of ADR (additional dialogue requirement) work was done this week. This is mostly down to filming that has been done on location. It is hard to hear some of the dialogue if a plane flies overhead or a seagull screeches at the wrong moment!

Some more spooky Halloween piccies were snapped of the cast and scary questionnaires filled out so look out for them this week on Tribeworld!

More exclusive photos!

Isn’t it pretty? The Botanical Gardens.

The scenes

100 scenes were filmed this week which makes a total of 68.32 minutes. The Parallel unit was used for 3 days out of 5 and quite a few extras were used.

The locations

Filming on location took place at Whiteman’s Valley Farm, Wellington Botanical Gardens, Wellington Opera House and the Cloud 9 pool.

The sun was supposed to be shining in the Botanical Gardens.

Make a start!

The earliest Crew Call was 05.45am for the unit team who had to be on location at Cloud 9 Studios to set up for breakfast (toast, cereal and fruit).

Of course the make-up team was there early too, at 05.55am to make the cast look even more gorgeous than they already are!

The latest wrap was at 19.15pm for the cast and crew who were filming in the studios.

The earliest call for our cast was 05.35am for new kid on the block Kelly Stevenson- Dee. There were several other early pick-ups for the rest of the cast as well. The latest pick-up this week was for the lucky Nick Miller at 15.10pm! Whew, what a lie in!

The weather

The weather this week was pretty revolting with lots of rain and cold winds. Things improved towards the end of the week and some of the cast were spotted wearing shorts and flip flops! There was one earthquake this week. Wellington Rocks!

Why is Salene standing in the heart shaped trellis?!

Here’s the record of the weather in week 10 of the production:

Monday 15th October

Cooler southerlies with showers

Wednesday 17th October

These are ‘marks’ on the ground so that the cast stand in the right place for their camera angles each and every take.
