On Sunday, July 24th, I'll be getting on a plane and heading to Wellington, New Zealand. Paramount Pictures will be funding part of my journey, during which I'll get to visit WETA, meet Peter Jackson, and chat about his new film The Adventures of Tintin. However, I'm also paying out of my own pocket to stay in New Zealand for a few extra days. My hope is to see some of the spectacular sights of the South Island and visit some locations from Lord of the Rings while I'm at it. If I have time/am conscious, I'll try to blog about my experiences, although it's more likely that I'll save all my content until I return home.
Obviously, updates will be sparse on here for about two weeks, but I plan to take tons of amazing photos that I hope you'll be pleased by.
If you have any suggestions for places I should definitely visit, please leave them in the comments (along with specific details about how I might get there). I'm planning on being on the South Island for about 2 days.
If any of you New Zealanders would like to meet me, I'll probably be hanging out at the lobby bar in the Museum Art Hotel in Wellington on Tuesday night (7/26) at around 8 PM. This could easily change though, so do follow me on Twitter to make sure you stay up to date with what's going.
Wish me safe travels. I'll see you on the other side.
