Local touch in Lost Treasure TV Series
Cast and crew of the children's television series, Lost Treasure of Fiji, have started filming the series at Pacific Harbour last week and are expected to finish in two months. The series provides an opportunity for local children to watch themselves on television with over 50 children having featured alongside the two local stars of the series. The film producer also said that filming in Fiji helped provide over tens of millions of dollars to the local economy. Filming will be done around Pacific Harbour which included a traditional Fijian village that was recreated and constructed for the series. The producer said that local touch of skills and knowledge was very useful in bringing about a "Fijian look and feel to the show". In recent weeks, over 60 Australian cast and crew members arrived to work on the series. The series will be aired on Fiji One, Network Ten and the Disney Channel, Australia and ZDF Television, Germany.
