Peter Jackson and 'The Hobbit' crew faced flood wrath in New Zealand

London, Sun, 04 Mar 2012 ANI

London, Mar 4 (ANI): Peter Jackson was forced to stop the filming of the 'Lord of the Rings' prequel, 'The Hobbit', in December, when local police issued a severe weather warning and urged him and his crew to pack up as driving rains and floods hit their remote New Zealand location.


Jackson has posted footage of the storms in his latest behind-the-scenes video blog from the set of the top secret movie.


"Our location shooting came to a pretty dramatic end because the police arrived and said they were about to issue a severe weather warning. I've never seen a crew pack up their gear so quickly", the Daily Express quoted him as saying in the video.


"The very next day, everywhere where we were standing was under floodwater. That was incredibly dramatic. The rise of the river level was, like, 20 or 30 feet," he added.


Jackson and his crew also faced harsh conditions when they shot scenes on the slopes of 'Mount Taranaki' as they had to create an elaborate scaffold walkway for the cast so that the ancient vegetation growing in the world's second oldest national park wasn't disturbed. (ANI)
