The Wizard sent a Peace Message in a Bottle with the kids in the Chathams Islands.

The Bottles were thrown in the Southern Seas along with many other bottles assembled by the kids containing messages of Peace from the children of the Chathams Islands. The bottles will hopefully go to the four corners of the world, anyone who finds a bottle will be invited to participate in the film!

Messages in a Bottle will be a segment in the Feature film which documents the culture and wild characters of the Chathams Islands.

The Wizard of New Zealand (182years old) on horseback converses with horseman Jack Moffat at the Bluff Station.

The Wizard went on to climb "Walk em Up" Mountain in the far distance - Dogs name is unknown. (anyone?)

The film documents, the Pitt Island Cattle Muster, Pig Hunting, Lobster Fishing, Moriori. Maori & colonial History plus the incredible landscape of New Zealands last wild frontier.

The WIZARD of NZ will be welcomed to the Islands, by the COMMODORE of the Chathams Islands, a genuine Chathams "Salty Dog", who had proclaimed himself as a double Commodore, and bumped into the WIZARD on his first trip back to the mainland in 10 years.

THE WIZARD & THE COMMODORE screens in cinemas February 2016

Trivia: The Wizard of New Zealand is now known by 3 names on the Chathams Islands - "Wizz", "Jack Spratt" & "Black Jack"
