Weather conditions - effect on production?

Weather conditions - effect on production? Can't Post

I don't know all the details but I read that New Zealand has had (or is still having) to deal with a lot of smoke from the Australian fires. In some photos of smokey areas that I saw (not sure where from though), even in unburnt areas the smoke could alter the view of the landscape. A strong orange, fog-like tinge over everything.

So I wonder if the weather would have (had) effects on the production of the Amazon series? Or would production at this stage still be mainly an indoors thing?

There have so far been only two days where the smoke was significant; [In reply to] Can't Post

one in the South Island that turned the sky a startling brown/orange, and one in Auckland which was just as surreal. While we have occasionally seen high-altitude smoke effects (like an orange moon or brilliant sunset), those more significant effects are thankfully rare. (Doubly thankfully, as they mean the situation is truly catastrophic in Oz.)

So on that count, I think we can rest easy regarding filming.

As Ataahua said [In reply to] Can't Post

And I would add that the biggest threat to any filming here would be our ridiculous weather, which does what it wants, whenever it wants, no matter what we tell it. Crazy

weather and filming [In reply to] Can't Post

I doubt that it would be something that would seriously put a damper on the production, in fact I think that depending on what exactly they are doing they could film those effects and maybe use them ;), I seem to recall that for Lotr films they filmed in actual fog or something like that it was useful cause they didn't have to CGI the weather effects :). Jokes aside we can't say but I doubt that.
