Here in Auckland, the scene of our filmmaking crimes…
Tonight it’s the function to launch the reissue of the HarperCollins novel, The Insatiable Moon, at Dymocks in Ponsonby. Clearly the place to be on a Thursday evening at 6.00pm. Though it does mean we’ll miss the TVNZ news which is rumoured to be featuring an item on the film.
Tomorrow morning the UK producers arrive bright and early at Auckland airport, thus completing a circle which began to be sketched in 2002.
Later that morning we do a tech rehearsal up at Sky City theatre – what will it all look and sound like? Scary stuff.
Friday night is a time to have dinner together and catch our breath.
And then Saturday… that’ll be the day… hang on to everything you’ve got!
