'Otago Daily Times' Report On Hobbit Casting Call At Oamaru Can't Post

Highlights from the Otago Daily Times' report on the Hobbit casting call that took place yesterday (Sunday 26th September 2011) at Oamaru, NZ:
Hundreds of people of all ages, shapes and sizes came to Oamaru yesterday in a bid to be part of The Hobbit movie being filmed by Peter Jackson... to be one of about 200 extras needed for filming scenes in the Twizel-Lake Pukaki area during November and December.

The casting call was also for "towns people" - men and women aged 30 to 80 years with character faces and men with beards. All shapes, sizes and ethnicities were welcome. That brought out some real characters, especially men of all shapes, sizes and colours of beards, some unkempt through to others plaited and trimmed. Some women dressed in Victorian clothes to enhance their chances of being selected.

They were warned the work was intermittent and often last-minute, work days were "long, changeable" and "patience and flexibility" was essential.

It is a "long lake" upon review online [In reply to] Can't Post

The Twizel-Lake Pukaki area is very pretty with the lake situated with a mountain range view in the distance and one peak in particular that could stand in for Erebor. They would have to digitally remove the other mountains but that is not hard to accomplish.
