THAT WAS NEW ZEALAND

My Herald story about the remastered This Is New Zealand documentary that Park Road Post did some great work on. The doco itself is an interesting document of a period in New Zealand's history that seems , thankfully, very distant. We've come a long way since Hugh Macdonald picked up his three camera rig and travelled the country...

Also, some photos from the 1969 production of the documentary courtesy of Archives New Zealand.
The striking effect created by Macdoanld using three cameras positioned at slightly varied angles.
One of the spectacular aerial scenes in This Is New Zealand. The documentary is most memorable for its aerial photography of the Southern Alps.
