Hobbit Premier

This is an EVENT NOTIFICATION rather than a co-ordinated meetup for the moment.
I'll be creating more of these as events come up - suggesting things that are on that you might be interested in going out and taking photos of!

If people want to meet at certain locations and times, feel free to co-ordinate amongst yourselves.

The Hobbit World Premier will be on in Wellington, with the movie screening at The Embassy. There will be a red carpet on Courtenay Place and possibly a parade through the CBD beforehand.
Fancy yourself as a paparazzo? Head along and see some stars!

Time to be confirmed - but if you want a good spot on the red carpet, you will need to be there early!

    Enjoyed the day and spent 9 hours standing, waiting and waiting but managed to get some good shots. I have uploaded a few on this website but you can view all of my shots taken at:-

    would be fabulous if anyone wanted to come and take high quality stills and perhaps some short video of me on the bigscreen camera, documentary style, for my showreel. use my EOS550 even. lots of very rich images in the Hobbit Village Craft Market also. I'll be at the mainstage next to the monstavison from 11am to 5pm. I'm willing to koha for the favour, do the same for you, or something that suits you..

      I'm surprised no one took up my offer.. was pretty exciting down there.. you could have spoken with Christopher Tolkien as I did, shook his hand and said thank you! would have really liked to have had that on camera.. i did offer!

    Hi Paul, Do you know if they will be showing a live feed on Wedn on the Monstavision? I have seen 2 different reports.

    November 26, 2012

    • Paul M.

      yes 'they' will.. I'm working with them on the big screen at Waitangi Park again tomorrow. there are multiple feeds everywhere for wednesday. There is another big screen near the stage near the Embassy and feeds to the theatres at Readings also. . The satellite guy was with us today rigging the feed for wednesday. Saw my fixed work from yesterday and my roaming work from today up on the big screen today, check my pics on facebook, feels good, nice to confirm the standard myself, while I'm not Live to screen.

  • Paul M.

    I will be on main video camera feeding the monstavision screen at Waitangi Park for the next two days, feel free to rock up and say hi, and hopefully take some pics of me with Hobbit stuff in the background.. I did some of that myself today, was a whole lot of fun.. The event is very rich in content for photographers and everyone. I shot the entire ORC prosthetics, makeup and costume process today, live to the big screen on full zoom most of the time, manual. The mayor gaveprizes for best Gollum impersonation, and we had a great costume comp as well as heaps of games etc...
