Keep an eye out for the American movie-makers in town this week, shooting footage all over Auckland for a 3D movie version of a favourite cartoon character.  They spent the last few days in Parliament Street and Waterloo Quadrant, closing off Anzac Ave in the process. Once again, the historic character of our neighbourhood has proven an attractive setting for a "foreign" film company and has easily simulated part of the US All they needed to do to create authenticity was to block the traffic and send cars with US number plates down the street the wrong way !
The wide-pan shots of Parliament Street will make interesting viewing, and we will enjoy seeing what they have made of our house.  It will be the first movie of the year filmed in our street, but quite possibly not the last. There have been several made whilst we have been here, not counting those actually made in the house itself, and of course Parliament Street and the surrounds is an old favourite for tv and fashion shoots, and for wedding photos as well.
So, keep those cameras rolling folks. Braemar features in yet another movie - ok, so we're in the background - and still looking good.
