White Cloud, Silver Screen by Bob Harvey

Book Description

New Zealand is becoming an ever more popular location for filmmakers from around the globe. White Cloud, Silver Screen is a major new scenic book about the country that became Middle Earth. All of the locations in the book have a connection with a film or television series, and while the beautiful South Island locations seen in The Lord of the Rings are a feature of the book, locations chosen for many other local and international productions are also included: beautiful Karekare beach from The Piano, for example, the remote farmland of Vigil, the streets of Dunedin from Scarfies, the central North Island plateau from Utu and the wild Westland bush from Bad Blood. Of particular interest will be images of Taranaki from The Last Samurai, shots of Whangara from Whale Rider and a preview of the locations in the major new film The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The book will also feature the familiar urban locations of television series like The Strip, Street Legal and Shortland Street. The book will include an introductory essay by Bob Harvey on how New Zealand has been portrayed on film, and detailed captions to the photographs will describe each location and link it to a particular film or films.
