J.A. Bayona is in Auckland Can't Post

Stuff is reporting that J.A. Bayona, director of the first two episodes of Season 1, has arrived in Auckland. No word on exactly what he's up to yet, but he's already started filming footage...of a bird in a cafe.

There is no indication that WETA will be involved, correct? [In reply to] Can't Post

Either they are not involved or they are but on the QT.

WETA came up a couple of times [In reply to] Can't Post

No official announcement yet but in some interviews they talked about using backdrops, or biggatures from Weta. Whether the digital department ist involved isn't sure yet. But I pretty much think so. Why else choose NZ?
