Twilight Set report on its way

Just thought I'd check in and say that the last few days have been incredible and that a full set report will be coming in the next few days/weeks. There aren't enough adjectives to emphasize the last few days. As a groupie it was brilliant to meet 'Edward' and 'Bella' and see the visaul depiction of these characters that we've grown to love immensely, but from an experiential stance.... this has been such a great exposure to the filmmaking process. My kudos are unending to Greg and Wyck, two of the producers, who shared with me their thoughts and experiences in the adaptation process and allowed me to remain close to the action and observe the filming.

The first day on set was at Ecola State National Park filming the La Push scenes where Jacob tells Bella what the Cullens actually are, yesterday was in St. Helen's filming the dress-shop scene with Angela and Jessica, and then the dinner scene after Edward saves Bella from the frat boys and he spills the beans that he can read minds. Tonight is their final day of shooting in Oregon and it's a night shoot, so that should be a chilly but exciting experience! Then they're off to LA for a couple of days and then they're done!

Here are a couple of pictures to whet the appetites for my next posts which will be more fleshed out, and detail filled. They are: Kristen Stewart getting soaked on the beach (it was pouring. 99% of the cast and crew agreed it was the worst day of filming they've ever been in). The second picture is Catherine Hardwicke (director), then Taylor Lautner as Jacob, a screen shot of the restaurant scene between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart), and the scene outside of the restaurant. Enjoy!

Hi Maggie! Lori from the Lex here! I am kind of jealous of your pics of the actual film. I figured we would get into trouble for taking pic of that, so I didn't go for it! And you did! If you have more, let us know so we can send the traffic your way. It was great to meet you! Oh and um... in case you didn't know... the socks you let us borrow are dead and burried.

Marissa said...

Wow, what an amazing experience for you! I'm so envious! lol
So what exactly do you do if you don’t' mind me asking? I think that would be a really cool job being able to adapt a book to film and seeing the characters and story come to life. To be truthful, it's always been a dream of mine as well. How do you go about doing something like that?

~Thanks! Blondie04092004@yahoo.com

You are living my dream. Sometimes it's so hard when you are reading the books to separate reality from your own Twilight fantasy. I so wish I could go up there and see whats going on. Heck I'd like to move up there. I bet its just beautiful. My husband is making me Bella's bracelet, so I am excited.

Sam said...

-sigh- You are incredibly lucky. Loved the pics!!! I don't know how I'm going to be able to wait until December. (Got this link from the lexicon by the way..)
