My mother in law lives in Miramar only down the road from where Weta's studios are-me I have never been there but I know most of the sites where all Peter Jacksons early films like Brain Dead , Bad Taste , Meet The Feebles and The Frighteners were filmed. Also where the famous battle scene in The Two Towers was filmed-in a quarry called The Dry Creek Quarry near a place called Manor Park on the way over from the Haywards Hill road.
King Kong was filmed in the old railway yards not far from where my family home is in a place called Seaview just off Port Road. The ship Venture was tied up in Wellington for about two years as Jackson did not want it after filming had finished-in the end they towed it out to sea and sunk it.
We are proud of Jackson down here Claire but part of me wants him to do another splatter film like he did in the old days-I suppose the "Suits" won't let him do that now.
