My Trip

My trip to we to Wellington was pretty amazing. It all started when I woke
up on sunday morning. Me and My Aunty Rose grabbed our cameras and
called a taxi. We got a taxi to the eye site in Wellington and got the Weta
bus to Weta Studios. When we got there we were told that there was a
rulethat you are not allowed to take photos in the studios. I was sad but I
did manage to get 1 or 2 photos in places you were allowed to. But inside
Weta was really cool.

In the first half we were introduced to a wall that has got every single
film that Weta studios made and was involved in over the years. After we
saw that we went into a few films with the real props that were used in
the films. Such as the Green Goblin suit from the 2014 Amazing
Spiderman 2, The Chappie Robot from the 2015 Chappie movie and the
2012 Halo movie that was going to get filmed right here in NZ.

We also got to see the face masks that they used on the actors. The
masks were made from a rubber that I can't remember the name of. In the
room we also got to see a robot sheep head from a Zombie SHeep horror
movie.After we heard what we needed to hear and take photos of what
we were allowed to take photos of we went a little cafe while we were
waiting for the 2nd half our our trip.

When We left the cafe and started the 2nd half of our trip we went into
the Nz Thunderbirds tour. There we were to watch a screen telling us
about the inspiration of Peter Jackson's movies came from the 1965
Thunderbirds TV show. The next thing is that we got to see that the new
NZ Thunderbirds show was made from real objects. Everything in the
show except for the Thunderbirds characters was completely handmade
objects. We also got to see that in one of the old episodes called
“ATTACK OF THE ALLIGATORS” was a huge inspiration for one of the new
thunderbirds episodes called “Attack Of The Lizard”.

After we finished our Thunderbirds tour it was time to get on the bus back
to our apartment and get ready for our plane back to greymouth.
