New Zealand is a British Commonwealth country of four million people in the South Pacific Ocean. It has been producing films almost as long as any other country has, with the occasional Oscar win, culminating in the record-equalling eleven Oscars awarded to Peter Jackson's third film in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Practically all of each of the three films in the trilogy was shot in New Zealand, with most of the cast being New Zealanders.
Peter grew up and remains based in the region around the capital city, Wellington, which provided a number of locations for the trilogy, and his associated Weta Workshop (in eastern suburb Miramar) produced many of the props and effects and did much of the post-production. He and it then turned their attention to King Kong.
