Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

New Zealand is becoming an ever more popular location for filmmakers from around the globe. White Cloud, Silver Screen is a major new scenic book about the country that became Middle Earth. All of the locations in the book have a connection with a film or television series, and while the beautiful South Island locations seen in The Lord of the Rings are a feature of the book, locations chosen for many other local and international productions are also included: beautiful Karekare beach from The Piano, for example, the remote farmland of Vigil, the streets of Dunedin from Scarfies, the central North Island plateau from Utu and the wild Westland bush from Bad Blood. Of particular interest will be images of Taranaki from The Last Samurai, shots of Whangara from Whale Rider and a preview of the locations in the major new film The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The book will also feature the familiar urban locations of television series like The Strip, Street Legal and Shortland Street. The book will include an introductory essay by Bob Harvey on how New Zealand has been portrayed on film, and detailed captions to the photographs will describe each location and link it to a particular film or films.

Excerpt provided by Syndetics

'Rotorua and its myriad of glorious lakes became the setting for some of New Zealand's earliest films. With its boiling mud pools, steaming geysers and Maori legends, it was a natural location for New Zealand's first filmmakers. The legend of Hinemoa and Tutanakai, the quintessential story of the Arawa people, told of two star-crossed lovers. An antipodean version of Romeo and Juliet with a midnight swim, it was a natural story to tell and one with a happy ending. The 1913 film, of which sadly no footage remains, was one silent reel produced and directed by Gaston Melies. Australian director/producer Raymond Longford also came to Rotorua to film the critically acclaimed Mutiny on the Bounty in 1916, for which no known footage remains. His previous film, A Maori Maid's Love, the first full-length featured made in New Zealand, was shot in the same location.
