The Twilight Impulse

My thoughts and impressions of the Twilight Saga, written by the fabulous Stephenie Meyer


Hey, I'm a massive Twilight Fan, and thanks to my friends being fed up with having to listern to my non-stop chattering about Twilight, i decided to create a blog for myself to just vent and document my twilight obsession!! I'm current studying journalism and have aspiration to become one, so why not write about something as awesome as the Twilight Saga!!

Behind the Scenes : New Moon

All of this extra footage from New Moon is being released now. Summit are obviously trying to get everyone hyped up about the DVD release so that they will want to go to midnight release parties, therefore creating a much larger revenue for Summit. Although, I live in Australia and we don’t get the DVD until Mid April (which sucks), I'm still getting really excited. This "behind the scenes" look that ET did looks so cool. You get to see all of the crew, how the set looked, how the actors/actresses interacted with each other off the camera (sort of) and it’s really great to actually be able to see the amount of work that has been put in to New Moon, beyond what everyone sees in the cinema.

I'm glad that Chris Weitz got some airtime, because I love him. He is so smart, and gorgeous, and funny and just a nice guy. I seriously would want to meet him, just as much as Kellan Lutz, Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed and all of the other cast members. Not only did he make New Moon such a beautiful film, I truly believe that he is an amazing person, with such a great personality from what everyone knows about him. The cast raved about him, too. Even after filming Eclipse, they were still talking about how amazing of a guy Chris is.

Although, some people would argue that they were just saying that because New Moon was coming out. Even if they didn’t like the director, they would still have to say positive things about them. It isn’t like Peter Facinelli can come out promoting Twilight and say that Catherine Hardwicke was a horrible, unorganised, director who has no technical ability. Despite that, I do seriously feel the cast’s sincerity when they talk about Chris positively.

The crew is always great to see behind the scenes. They work so hard, and nobody even gives them any recognition. Its always "Ashley Greene was so good in New Moon", or "Jackson Rathbone's scene where Jasper attacks Bella was my favourite", and all things like that. I mean, people go to the movies to see their favourite actors/actresses and sometimes, favourite directors.

But, the crew, nobody goes to a film because their favourite cinematographer or screenwriter worked on the film. So, i LOVE seeing them being interviewed and being an actual part of the film that the fans and the general public can see. Even though we don't know them, we can still say "thanks so much", the "special effects" or "the lighting" was "amazing".

It was also interesting to see how they solved difficulties on the set, and such. Like the temperature in Jacob and Bella's "break-up" scene. Also during that scene, it was funny when Kristen was trying to talk, but she just kept getting flooded with water. I knew about the trouble Rob had with the mosquitoes during Edward and Bella's break-up scene, but I didn’t know about the planes flying over, LOL. So, little bits of information like that it’s really interesting to me as a fan, though it may seem tedious to other people.

Summit are hyping everyone up for the DVD with all of the extras...deleted scenes, behind the scenes footage, snippets of Chris' commentary with Peter Lambert etc. That because everyone in the US is getting the DVD in like 4 days or something. However, we Aussies don't get it for over a month. That's so unfair that due to our geographical location, we have to wait longer to get it. Come on, we're all fans so shouldn’t equality come into play somewhere? Oh well, I hope Summit changes it and creates worldwide release dates, not ones for every country where people in France or Canada have to wait WAY longer than he US. Anyway that’s another issue. Back on track: I’m SO excited for the DVD!! :)
