4Sight is famous! Ok, not really… but our talented team at 4Sight has been known to help out some other big-name talent in the past.
Heard of the Kiwi novelist Eleanor Catton? Well, the hype around her bestselling, Man-Booker prize-winning novel, The Luminaries, was rekindled in 2018 with the announcement of a BBC six-part TV series to be filmed here in New Zealand, and we were engaged to help its producers secure an Auckland film location and attain resource consent.
With former Bond girl, Eva Green, playing the main character, and New Zealand actor, Marton Csokas, from The Lord of the Rings playing the leading male, the book is set on the rugged West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island during the 1860s gold rush. And although the film will not be filmed in the South Island, it’s thanks to the perseverance of our amazing team that the film received resource consent in a timely manner and the crew were able to commence filming in Central and West Auckland in November 2018.
Well done team! Check out the article on the New Zealand Film Commission website here for more information on the TV series or you can now find the show streaming on TVNZ on demand.
