Twilight Set! Wahoo!
Get excited (well, at least I am)... I'm back in Portland after a week at home in Pennsylvania, and I'm heading to the Twilight set tomorrow! YAY! I think I might have come off a bit overzealous, but the film's publicist graciously agreed to allow me onto the set to observe.
Of course I'm looking forward to seeing the physical realization of the books I've been reading, but I'm quite excited from an analytical point of view to truly see some of the adaptation issues that I've been studying in action. I'm looking forward to seeing how they use the script, if the novel is ever referred to during the filming, if the actors refer to it, if the script is a fluid thing that may change slightly depending on the actor's delivery etc... it will just be very interesting. I certainly hope that I get to chat with a few of the crew members and/0r actors, but even if I'm just sitting quietly on the sidelines all day observing I think it will be very beneficial and a great foundational experience for my work. I mean, I keep reading about adaptations, and it will be nice to actually be able to refer to my own observations from the set of Twilight.
Very exciting. Look forward to another descriptive post soon. Plus, yay for being back in Portland! I love this city!
And here's the site for a great new Twilight video from MTV.com :) Enjoy http://youtube.com/watch?v=sD6DFloIXyE
