We've just got back from North Wales, filming key hunting scenes for the past 3 days. It's been a fantastic shoot and we've got around half of the film in the sack featuring Strider, Gollum and a taste of some Orcs. We were camping near Cadair Idris(interactive map) which is incredibly beautiful, stark, mountainous and forested just like Middle Earth. The moody Welsh weather was kind for the first two days although the last day we all got completely soaked climbing the mountain. Actually this made the shots look even better.
I must thank our amazing cast and multi-talented crew: Adrian Webster, Matthew Cunningham, Sam Price, Kate Robinson, Gareth Brough, Adam Dymond, Luke McNally, Natalie Flindall and Stoffer Roberts.
Next up - we'll be logging through the footage before filming the remaining scenes over the next few months. Filming stills to come soon.
