Mayor Bob at Lord of the Rings

Mayor Bob at Lord of the Rings

Waitakere Mayor Bob Harvey will join special guests at the world premier of the third instalment of Lord of the Rings. The premier is being held on Monday (1st December) in Wellington, where much of the filming and post production took place.

Mayor Harvey was personally invited by the film’s director, Peter Jackson. “Peter and I have been friends for many, many years", he says. “We worked on a couple of features and television ads together before he became world-renowned.”

Mayor Harvey and Peter Jackson were also friends and mentors of the young filmmaker Cameron Duncan who died of cancer earlier this month.

Mayor Harvey is a member of the New Zealand Film Commission and Waitakere City is one of the most sought-after locations for both local and overseas productions in New Zealand. The film and television industry is estimated to bring in excess of $1 billion a year into the Auckland region, with much of that going into the Waitakere economy.

“Like everyone else I can’t wait to see the third instalment of Lord of the Rings,” says Mayor Harvey. “ I feel honoured and privileged to be at this special premier”.

… END.
