New Zealand’s screen industry is booming as Hollywood looks to New Zealand more and more as a safe haven for film and television production. Amazon’s “Lord of the Rings” prequel, James Cameron’s “Avatar” sequels and Netflix’ reboot of ‘Cowboy Bebop’ are all in desperate of people who know their way around a film and tv set. In Auckland alone the industry predicts it will need 500 graduates over the next three years to fill various roles on set.
