Greetings From New Zealand – Part 1

What do you do Mid-July when you need snowy conditions, English speaking locals, and mountains for shooting spots?  You travel to the opposite side of the Earth to New Zealand.  Beginning last week we started scouting locations along with a team of local production “Mates”, and this week the shooting began.  So far everything has gone very well!

Here are some of our experiences thus far:

So far one of our favorite activities has been scouting for shooting locations in the mountains.  When in the snow covered mountains, scout in style, right?  We’re not sure about how “in style” snowmobiles are, but we’re positive they’re a blast to drive!!

    It is ridiculous how beautiful that landscape is. I went snowmobiling once in Tahoe, but it didn’t QUITE look like this! Congrats, guys; making some great memories in addition to doing whatever you went there to do. Couldn’t happen to a nicer group of folks.

    Thanks for the kind words, Phyllis! We really have made some great memories, new friends, and we captured a lot of great footage in the process. This one goes under the “WIN” catagory!!

    Take care,
    Team Forté
