Hey guys.. does anybody know who the production company / production managers are on The Hobbit? I'm planning on moving to NZ from Sydney to have a crack at getting a job on the set..
I'm not sure exactly what you mean by production company (probably just my ignorance). Peter Jackson's Wingnut Films will probably be involved somehow, or maybe a company affiliated with del Toro. Weta will do a lot of production design I'd imagine.

I'd suggest going to a job website if you're looking for a job, though. <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' />
Wingnut's probably a good place to start, cheers for that! I really should've been able to figure that one out teheh :P I work as a boom operator from Sydney so I'm just trying to discover whether or not there's a smaller company / companies involved with the actual production, in terms of crewing, etc. It's also a bit of a stretch trying to find Wingnut's website! Nothing came up on my google search! gRR..
They're probably trying to keep most of the work in New Zealand, I believe that's what they did for LOTR. Depending on NZ's labour laws you might be too late to move there already, but if not and you want to work in Wellywood your best bet is probably to physically go there and hunt down their offices. That might not be very practical though.

Good luck!
