Video: The Dawn Treader Rocks

Posted September 9, 2009 11:55 pm by Glumpuddle

NarniaWeb Spy Tamara has uploaded two more videos of the Dawn Treader set at Cleveland Point. The first one shows the ship slowly rocking back and forth in front of a large blue screen:

Another shows Ben Barnes and Skandar Keynes being sprayed with water, which Tamara also described in a recent report. Is Caspian wet after diving in to save Lucy, Edmund, and Eustace?

Double click on the videos to view their YouTube pages.
Thanks to CaspianThePrince.

UPDATE: This video shows the actors performing as the ship rocks:

UPDATE: In this video, Caspian appears to be taking Edmund into the cabin.

    Nice videos! Good to see more progress!

    • Aravis(narniafan#!) says:

      YOU GUYS! Ben Barbes was injured by Skandar! They were sword fighting when Skandar popped him in the lip!

      • Reep13 says:

        In what video does skandar injure ben????

      • crushonskandarandwill! says:

        Reep13; there’s no video! Go to word on the street and it says, "Ben injured"! Or something like that.

      • Reep13 says:

        Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Princess Arya says:

        I know there isn’t an obvious video that says Skandar injured him, but I thought it might’ve happened during that swordfight we saw recently. It was the two of them evidently performing a stunt, and then in the middle of it somebody says "and cutting…" I just assumed that was kinda when it happened!

      • daughter of the King says:

        Princess Arya, "and cutting" is a film term. It is not referring to Ben Barnes has cut his lip.

      • Princess Arya says:

        Rofl, I knew that! They "cut" the scene when it is interrupted or completed. This may not have been the scene, but if it happened in this scene, it probably happened at that point.

      • Little Narnian says:

        I’m pretty sure that Ben can handle a puffy lip:P
        I think he can take it:P

        Go to Narniafans.com and you type in the search box: Dawn Treader Filming at the Spit(video).

      • Lili says:

        As said by a person on narniafan.com, now we know who the better swordsman is ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • FriendOfNarnia2 says:

      It probably happened while filming that scene, but it most likely wasn’t during that take. They usually film each shot several if not a dozen or so times before moving onto the next shot.

  • malkah says:

    Hmmm, in the second picture, Skandar appears to be wearing something that could be an English jacket, so perhaps it IS right after they’ve fallen through the painting. Even if it’s not, exciting to see bits of filming!

  • 7chronicles says:

    I wish so bad, I could get on a plane to Australia right now, I don’t care if I’m there for just one hour and then fly back home. I just want to see The Dawn Treader!!!! The scene looks like to jumped from the book’s pages. Can’t wait for more info:)

  • Narniabigfan says:

    Nice!!Is Dawn Treader wiggling?
    Hey,if you want to see more Skandar pics on VDT set you can see them here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvuXhrXbpgo&feature=related

    • Narniamiss says:

      Thanks bunches for this URL, I’ve been trying to find it!

    • narnian resident says:

      omg these are amazing pictures! just look at georgie! she looks like she has red hair! and she looks 16 or something, sitting up there all proud steering the boat! boy! they all look amazing! haha but goergie reminds me of a female pirate with her hair pulled back and everything!

    • narnian resident says:

      by the way thank you narniabigfan! i really do love them!

    • Reep13 says:

      Thanks a bunch!!!!!!

  • JadistarkilleR says:

    video#1: you cant imagine the thrill i felt seeing that beautiful large ship MOVING! despite the cranes and the tents and the big blue screen seeing the Dawn Treader move is enough for me to imagine what she could be like in open waters. beautiful! thanks so much for posting this!

    video#2: really the attention to detail, must make sure that beard is dripping wet too lol! but theres a slight breeze and Ben and Skandar are soaked to the bone, must really feel the chill despite the strong sun. one of the less glamorous moments of being an actor ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Fire Fairy says:

    Looks great! My roomie thinks I’m crazy for liking spoilers. And I couldn’t watch them with any sound because she’s asleep. Oh, well, I’ll watch it again tomorrow…It’s so great that we can actually get spies in to watch the filming!! They were so secretive when making PC, it was impossible to get any pictures of filming.

  • glumPuddle says:

    It looks to me like Skandar has a blanket wrapped around him. It makes sense that Edmund would be offered a warm blanket after coming out of the cold water.

    • JadistarkilleR says:

      the blanket is given to him when the cameras arent rolling. its the same for Ben and Georgie (based on earlier photos). but when cameras roll its blankets off.

    • JadistarkilleR says:

      ok i thought you were referring to the blue blankets with the insulation like what i saw earlier. the brown ones are part of the film, but Edmund has one as well as Lucy.

  • Griffle says:

    I love the first video, seeing the ship rock back and forth. Really cool!

    The last video is annoying though with the photos being taken as it’s recorded. Also, I wonder why they don’t ask the audience to be quiet once they start shooting. Feels a bit unnecessary to shoot with the the sound of kids playing in the background when you have the option to do it whitout.

    • JadistarkilleR says:

      lol dont worry, the ship deck is actually quite far away and that high up that the ambient noise from the crowd doesnt reach them. the photos and videos make it appear like they’re near because these are on zoom mode. truthfully the equipment used by these intrepid Narnia fans are quite impressive ๐Ÿ™‚
      and remember this is an outdoor shoot, 90% of the time they re-record dialog in post production.

  • Narnia Lover says:

    I’m going to have to watch them when I get the chance! But I’m glad to see that there’s more news on VDT! SAIL ON VDT!!!

  • skandargirl_95 says:

    agh!
    I love it!
    thankyou so much for uploading these vids…it made my day just seeing Skandar!

  • NarniaComesAlive says:

    Thanks for the video!

    The slightly rocking VDT in video#1 finally makes me feel more "real" that the film is turely on progress. And in video#2, it seems to me that Skandar looks very alike as he shown on the film of Caspian.

    It’s nice to learn more about the latest work, though, and more filming progress I know day by day, the harder I can wait to see VDT on theater:)

  • NarniaComesAlive says:

    Thanks for the video!

    The slightly rocking VDT in video#1 makes me finally feel more "real and solid" that the film is truely on a good progress. In video#2, it seems to me that Skandar looks pretty alike as he shown in Caspian, but I have no doubt that he should be taller now:)

    It’s nice to learn more about the latest work, and the more news I get to know about VDT, the harder I can wait to see it on theater! Sail VDT!

  • yeswelovenarnia says:

    OH MAN I REALLY REALLY REALLY WISH I COULD BE THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Eden says:

    Cool videos! The Dawn Treader truly DOES rock! ๐Ÿ˜›
    Can’t wait to see more. Thanks again Tamara! XD

  • daughter of the King says:

    I’m still guessing this is at the beginning where they get pulled out of the water. And yes, I want to live in Australia too.

  • Michael Lagura says:

    I can’t wait to watch even the trailer itself. Narnia rocks!!!

  • Lutra's Pearl says:

    Sweetness! Keep the story of Aslan alive!

  • Mirima Rosetrader says:

    Wow! Thanks to everyone who sent in those videos! It’s so cool to be able to watch the filming even if your not there physically, thank you for be considerate to us Americans! Can’t wait to see more! I’m dying to see a trailer I’m assuming one will probably come out Decemberish, but that’s just an assumption.

    • FriendOfNarnia2 says:

      Generally movie trailers are not released a year before the movie comes out. I’m expecting we will see the trailer attached to some of next summer’s blockbusters.

  • Narniamiss says:

    AHHH! AHH! Just when Georgie turned her face up to Ben, the camera started shaking like crazy! Oh well, I am more and more impressed at how much you did, Tamara! Very cool.

  • NothinButNarnia says:

    who are they talking to, Eustace, Reep??? Because Georgie, Skandar, and Ben are all facing one direction

  • twinimage says:

    Interesting… I shouldn’t watch so many of these things. It’ll ruin the experience for me when the movies released!
    I do this every time. lol

  • Giuliano says:

    beautiful video

  • wannawork4Weta says:

    We are watching the actual filming of this movie as it happens! Almost real time! I’m sorry, I’m in disbelief, and so very happy!

  • BradenWoodburn says:

    Wow wow that is incredible! To imagine seeing all this behind the scenes and in the making stuff, then see it on the big screen and realize "wow, I saw them filming thios part!" Oo can’t wait till this is out! Yay!

  • Embrace says:

    The boat that rocked!

  • Trufflehunter says:

    In the second viddeo there is a satyr standing behind ben!

  • firelily says:

    Can’t what till the movie comes out

  • Anonymous Narnian says:

    Very cool! It’ll be nice to see more of this set footage. Keep it up, spies!

  • CairParavel says:

    This tells me that the movie sure is coming along. Nice job, Tamara! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

  • tenthofthatname says:

    Love the videos! I also think it’s hilarious how Georgie disappears when the boat rocks upward, but Skandar and Ben (esp. Ben) are tall enough to avoid being obscured. Wish I could be there.

  • ernesto torres chรกvez says:

  • Silver the Wanderer says:

    The Dawn Treader rocks! Lol. It’s so cool how they are able to make such a huge structure roll back and forth like that! I don’t know – has this been done before in the filming of other movies?

  • edmund rox says:

    couldn’t see much. Can’t wait to see the movie though.

  • Countess Shamira says:

    It’s almost as good as seeing the movie and being able to go behind the scenes at the same time! Thanks Bunches Tamara!!

  • narnian resident says:

    wow this is cool! its amazing how the ship rocks. these videos are the coolest sneak peeks lol! tamara is my favorite narnian spy now. i should hire her to get me sneak peeks for all the other movies(if they make them), and probably for other movies i love that are coming out! haha!

  • Aslans_jewel says:

    Man, I wish Ben would shave his beard, it just doesnt fit his character right, hes twice Caspians age, and has straight dark hair, the exact opposite of what hes supposed to be!

  • Aslan's my homeboy says:

    I makes my day to see Skandar ๐Ÿ™‚

  • ASLAN'S CHILD says:

    I will be dragging my boyfriend to Brisbane to see the filming next weekend. All the snaps and clips make it all so interesting and worth taking days off work for! This is me flying from Sydney & practically begged on two knees to get the days off… Thanks to all the Narnia fans who share the fun the world over ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Edmund-is-hot says:

  • Puddleglum says:

    Seeing the Dawn Treader rocking makes me a little woozy.
    Marshwiggles are not meant to be on ships. I prefer my nice safe swamp. No waves.

  • CDT says:

    I wonder how much longer they’re gonna be filming there for? Our trip this weekend would be pointless if they start packin up this Friday ๐Ÿ™
