More Info on Tongariro - Filming in National Park
The Plains of Gorgoroth... also the Rangipo Desert in Tongariro National Park
Just saw on TV3 news here in New Zealand about LOTR filming in the National Park. They managed to get a camera in and showed a group of people practicing (swinging swords over their heads etc.). Also heard from the News item that someone managed to get quite a bit of footage and sold it overseas for $40,000.
Does anybody have that footage? If you do, let us know! We'd love to put it online...
