Filming Motherhood

Tuesday 21st March 2000 Page 7 of 12


Copyright: Adrian Petford  21 March 2000 Over a period of time, more and more vehicles and equipment arrived at the production camp and it gradually began to resemble the one I had previously seen at the Lake Wainamu Reserve. A growing group of people were congregating behind up in the dunes, undertaking various tasks such as marking out positions for filming. A lot of care was taken to set up lights and such like.

Interestingly, Tilly and Gabrielle's horse remained standing on the beach for a short time after I had seen them being led round, but were taken back to the car park while things still appeared to be in the process of being set up for filming, which struck me as rather strange. They must have been moved to the beach for a reason, yet I didn't see any actual scenes being shot with them while they were there. As usual, I suppose we'll find out when the episode airs!
