Wellington before the premiere Can't Post

I am lucky to be in Wellington right now with all this exciting stuff happening. So I put on my dwarf costume yesterday and grabbed a friend with a camera to have a look at what Wellington looks like right before the red carpet premiere.

Jealousy isn't a strong enough word... ;) [In reply to] Can't Post

Wink

As grateful as I am to have been born and raised in America, there have been times when I would have given anything to have been born in NZ and be near (maybe even a part of) this wonderful experience that has been the filming of the Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit. I wish it was within my means at present to be there for the premiere - but, alas, I must once again admire it from afar.

God willing, forces will conspire to grant me an opportunity to visit in time for the premiere of There and Back Again in 2013. *crosses fingers*

"All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds awake to find that it was vanity; But the dreamers of day are dangerous men. That they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it possible."

Jealousy...continued [In reply to] Can't Post

I know... I'm reasonably near by, yet not close enough! NZ born and bred, but currently living in Melbourne... and my job (advertising) doesn't permit any time off before Christmas. Otherwise I'd totally be in Wellington hanging with friends if I could! Especially as I have a contact at Weta. Yep, so near and yet so FAR.

'O' is very useful. You use it when you say... "Oscar's only ostrich oiled an orange owl today."
