Filming was carried out in quite a few areas in and around Tapanui – not just in Northumberland St/Main St. Some areas used were large, others quite small.

One of the smaller areas used was the gap between the La Hoods/Maddox Pharmacy and the Tapanui Courier/Farmers Supply building.

Main Street, Millhaven

Crew members spent about 2 months working on the shops and the areas surrounding Northumberland Street to turn Tapanui into Millhaven.

Filming in Northumberland/Main Street was mainly concentrated into a period of one week in April 2015 (during which it snowed – on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th. Some of the Americans had never been in snow before, so this was a new experience for them).

Sycamore Street, Millhaven

One scene required a Forest Ranger vehicle to be driven down Main Street (by Bryce Dallas Howard?). To film this scene, the vehicle was set up on a trailer in Sycamore Street (opposite the Sheriff’s Office).

These two Forest Ranger vehicles have the same registration plates.
