Cleveland Point Deluged in Dust

The production managed to complete filming at Cleveland Point just in the nick of time. The entire Redlands area was engulfed in a rare dust storm on Wednesday. BaysideBulletin writes, “At Cleveland Point, the Dawn Treader on the Narnia set was devoid of its brilliant colours and the bay itself was visible for little more than 100 metres; the thick wall of dust that robbed us of the usual panaoramic views made the world seem to end just off shore.” You can read the whole story at BaysideBulletin’s website here.

    Phew! Or else they would have had to somehow incorporate a dust storm into the movie!

    Wow! It's a good thing they left!

    It was Aslan's doing.

    photo makes the place look totally otherworldly, heck they could use that kind of footage with the Dawn Treader still there.

      Yeah, it feels like you're looking into nothing…Or like you're on some foreign planet…Too bad there was nothing like that in the book, so they could make use of it.

    That was a close call. I did see that on world weather the other day in a different location and was praying it would either miss them or they would wrap it up before it hit…Thank you Lord…Long Live Aslan !!!

    Interesting. It has been reported that filming is several days ahead of schedule. Looks like the hand of Providence to me.

  13. Aslan's my homeboy says:

    wow just time time! That would've been bad news

  14. Silver the Wanderer says:

    Woah! :O That's so…woah. Yeah, its a good thing they got out of there in time! I hope the Dawn Treader isn't too messed up…we still need her.

    Oh my gosh, that storm hit were I live, it came all the way up from SYDNEY! It was absolutly horrible, and I was outside at the shops when it really got bad. Lucky they finished filming. It seems that the weather is actually on OUR side for once!
    TOUCH WOOD!

    I saw about the dust storm in the news and the first thing I thought was "Narnia filming! Is this upsetting them?"

  17. Fire Fairy says:

    That was close…the picture looks pretty eerie…thank goodness (and Aslan) they were ahead of schedule!

    Lewis wrote about the Dark Island, not the Orangey Island… glad it wasn't any earlier or it would have caused various problems.

    I live in Australia and I experienced to dust storm. It was preety bad and everything got covered in dust. My family are still cleaning. It must have been bad for the filming. I imagine any props or things that weren't covered up would have been covered in dust.
    I think everything is under control now though.

    For those of you dought that it was really a dust storm.
    I must admit, I had never experienced a dust storm before, but when I saw the pictures from Austrailia that weather man here in Washington D.C. showed on TV. I thought to myself, I would not live in Sidney during a dust storm.
    (By the wy in the horse and his boy, a dust storm is called a sand storm.)

    My family has been trying to pray for the film every day. This reminds of the time they went the the Czech Republic [for the LWW] when there was no snow and they were wondering what they were going to do, and then the next day there were feet of it! Hopefully the rest of the film will go according to "Aslan's" will.

    I live in Brisbane, and it would have been terrible if any equipment was left out or anything, the dust would have almost destroyed it by getting into any cracks and stuff.
    You can still see it around our house almost a week later

    I'm glad I don't live in Australia.
