White Cloud, Silver Screen

£14.99

Product description

New Zealand is becoming an ever more popular location for filmmakers from around the globe. White Cloud Silver Screen showcases the country that millions came to know as Middle Earth. All of the places featured have a connection with a local or international film. Among Tony Bridge?s memorable photographs are the spectacular South Island locations seen in The Lord of the Rings, beautiful Karekare Beach from The Piano, the breathtaking scenery of Central Otago from In My Father?s Den, the beguiling Whanganui River that haunts River Queen and the wild West Coast of Perfect Strangers. Of particular interest are images of Taranaki from The Last Samurai, photographs of Whangara from Whale Rider and locations used in the major new international film The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The book also features familiar urban locations, including Christchurch (Heavenly Creatures), Dunedin (Scarfies) and other centres. In an enlightening introduction, Bob Harvey describes how New Zealand has been portrayed on film since the first pioneering efforts before World War I, right up to the major international film productions of today. White Cloud Silver Screen is both a wonderful reminder of the films that have delighted the world over many years and a souvenir of one of the most beautiful countries on earth. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Bob Harvey is the author of several successful books, including Untamed Coast and Rolling Thunder, both of which were finalists in the Montana Book Awards, and Westies (2004). He spent 30 years in advertising and produced television documentaries with Roger Donaldson and Sir Edmund Hillary. In 1992 he stood for the mayoralty of Waitakere City, a position he has held since and in which he has actively promoted Waitakere as a city friendly to film and television production. An advocate for local films for many years, he is a member of the New Zealand Film Commission. ABOUT THE PHOTGRAPHER Tony Bridge is a Fellow of the Photographic Society of New Zealand and has exhibited throughout the country. He was born in Maniototo in Central Otago but has spent most of his life in Canterbury. After graduating from Canterbury University with a degree in foreign languages, he gained a professional photography qualification from Christchurch Polytechnic. He now teaches photography and graphic design, and lives in Christchurch with his wife Barbara, their children Sophie and Alex and three pampered cats. An avid filmgoer, he is fascinated by the unique character of the New Zealand landscape and the way it has been depicted on film.
