Air New Zealand have a knack for coming up with entertaining and engaging safety videos. While other airlines tend to have rather dull videos that go through the motions, Air New Zealand’s videos repeatedly entertain. How do they do it? It’s tricky.
Ahead of the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Air New Zealand has taken it upon itself to once again bring the world of Middle-Earth to life in this awesome in-flight video.
If you’re ever lucky enough to fly Air New Zealand, you might want to actually pay attention to the safety video that plays before takeoff. The airline hired WETA, the effects shop responsible for The Lord Of the Rings films, to punch up the video.
