Ian Brodie, author of the popular location guides to Lord of the Rings, decided that folks enjoyed his images of the New Zealand landscapes used for Lord of the Rings so much, he would go further and show even more of New Zealand that has been used in the many other New Zealand films. After forewards by filmmakers Roger Donaldson and Gaylene Preston, his introduction explains the book's objectives and organisation. Then follows a section dedicated to brief outlines of 31 select titles that introduce you to some films that you might consider experiencing. He then starts you on a 100+ page journey through New Zealand, illustrating, with his photographs and text, why filmmakers are selecting New Zealand for so many locations. Finally he has compiled a list of 228 feature films made in New Zealand since 1939, followed by a list of International awards those films have received. If you are interested in some specific area he has showcased, he has included some website addresses from which you can obtain further information about that area of this beautiful country. New Zealanders now have a great book, they can send to their non-New Zealand friends that are not blessed with residing in this magical land, that shows why it is so special to filmmakers. You now have the perfect gift item that is available from booksellers throughout New Zealand or order on-line from the New Zealand Fighter Pilots Museum Store. Definately Recommended.
