The Hobbit has started filming again for 10 weeks in Wellington for new scenes and a few pick-up shots. Russell Oliver was thrilled to be a part of this.
Darren Vincec, Robert Mignault, Frances Sullivan and Sarah Houbolt are shortly to appear in various guest roles on Shortland Street.
THE FORGOTTEN ASTRONAUT
Robert Mignault appears as the Astronaut in this new short film which recently premiered as a Finalist in TROPFEST NZ 2013. An astronaut returns from a deep space mission to discover that NASA has forgotten all about him and he can only communicate with a space nut from Cape Egmont -- not Cape Canaveral!
The First World War gave rise to New Zealand’s first “conscientious objectors”, men who stood out against the jingoism of the day and declared their opposition to a war fought thousands of miles away and for which New Zealand men were conscripted, many against their will. Nathan Ramsey and Campbell Marsters were lucky to be a part of this filming.
