Filming for Must Do New Zealand – Franz Josef Tours

Filming for Must Do New Zealand – Franz Josef Tours

by | Apr 9, 2016

This morning we took out a film crew from Must Do New Zealand, they were down filming the Te Waonui Forest Retreat and thought they’d spend their last morning fishing and cruising around the lake with us!  We were blessed with sunshine, calm waters and even caught a Lake Salmon!

The cruise started off with a quick Lake Salmon hooked before the lines were properly set out!  The salmon season has finished so the fish was released back into the Lake.  My mom was over visiting from Canada, and she was given a camera to take a few shots of our own while the shooting was going on!  Here’s a shot of the misty start we had, and a nice angle of our mornings kayak tour with Franz Josef Tours:

We towed a double kayak behind the boat, something we’ve been doing often lately while getting some footage!  This was to enable different camera angles for the video and for the photos.  Perfection.

My mother managed to catch a photo of some beautiful diving birds.

That’s if for this week … remember the winters on the Lake can be some of the BEST for reflections and surreal mountain views.  Book your Charter or Cruise Today!
