When you put your heart and soul into something as intense as the duration of a film production, you become completely lost in it. You focus on doing your very best to get it right each day and you work on this for so long that you assume an ownership of it.
When shooting The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, I always felt an awareness of how many people this film would reach and as a result, knew that this film did not just belong to myself, the producers and the studio, but more so, to all of you, the fans of The Twilight Saga.
At the end of the day, after all the hard work is done, all that’s left is the film itself, and your overwhelmingly positive and supportive responses have made me feel like we must have done something right. As a filmmaker, this is a rare and strange feeling of connection with an audience of which I will never forget and I thank you all for it.

MoviesOnline sat down with director David Slade, producer Wyck Godfrey and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg at the Los Angeles press conference for “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” to talk about their new film. They told us about the difficulties of adapting the third novel into a two-hour movie, what it was like working with a ready made cast, and how they maintained continuity between this film and the first two films. Here’s what they had to say:
Q: Why should somebody see “Eclipse”?
David Slade: I guess, like, if you’re not into the World Cup, and there’s nothing worth seeing on TV and you’ve not got any plans, we’ve got, like, I think six or seven decapitations. You know, if there’s nothing much going on that night, it’s a good night out. As long as there’s nothing else on at the movies you want to see. But no, being serious, I think it’s the most mature book, and I think we made, we went for the most mature film. Certainly, there’s a great deal of romance in the film, but there’s also other things. Vengeance is a very big theme in the film. Our action sequences all are built out of character, so they’re not just effects. They’re actually built out of a need to get to a place. And I think it’s a film for everyone, this one.
Q: What did you do to prepare for “Eclipse” and how did you bring your own style to the film?
David Slade: There’s a cinematic vocabulary to each of the films they’ve done. And it doesn’t come from that much premeditation. It comes from two things. One, seeing the film in my head before we go out and make it, and being very clear about what that is and planning it, and then two, what’s right for the scene and the character. I believe the most interesting thing to look at in the world is the human face, so that is why I tend to be a little closer to those human faces than maybe other directors would be.
Wyck Godfrey: When you were first talking to us about the movie, you had said that by letting the background fall out of focus and really focusing on the characters in the dangerous scenes, it creates a heightened sense of anxiety. You feel like you don’t really know what’s back there, and in the romantic scenes it creates an incredible sense of intimacy. You really feel like it’s just these two people in that world, and I think that was really effective in the movie.
David Slade: I was going to go on to elaborate, just one sentence, which is to say that with close-up comes selective focus, and it is to focus the viewer, to point them in a direction. And when I talked about vocabulary, it extends so you get a close-up which has very little amount of focus in it, but also you’ll see medium shots and wider shots that also bring the audience’s attention to a specific place, which is entirely intentional.
Q: You were working with a ready-made cast for “Eclipse.” How did you help establish what would be expected of their characters for this film?
David Slade: What I did is, I saw each one of the actors individually, and we’d have one-on-one meetings. What we’d do is, we would … the first time I was just listening. I’d just listen to everything they told me about their characters, everything they thought about their characters. Then we’d meet again, and we’d talk about the script. But each time, one-on-one. Then a third time, a fourth time. By this time, we’re now talking about all the ideas that I’m to bring forward but incorporating all of that character and story that they’ve taken from me, and then the final stage is we go into an ensemble rehearsal, where all the actors come together, but we don’t have to talk about character anymore — we talk about content and story. And that was I think the most respectful way, and that’s how I chose to go about it.
Q: How difficult was it to adapt the novel into a two-hour movie?
Melissa Rosenberg: I think, to begin with, it took me by surprise, because I actually thought this would be the easiest, because there’s so much conflict in it, and you have this huge battle that you’re building toward. But then once I got into it and actually breaking the story, I realized all that happened in the third act. So then it was looking at what’s going on in the first two acts other than conversation leading up. And what I found was that a lot of the threat that is in the third act, that’s building that conflict, pulling that forward and being able to expand on some of the mythology. In a movie, we can cut away to another perspective, but in the book, it’s all Bella’s perspective. So it actually ended up being probably the most fun to write in the end, after I got over the incredible disappointment that it wasn’t going to be easy — as if anything ever is.
Q: Are there any extras for the DVD?
Wyck Godfrey: Well, the nude scene you shot that wasn’t in the book will probably be on there. I don’t know, I think with any film, you go through the process of kind of editing it down to its fighting weight, and ultimately you’re going to end up with some scenes that didn’t end up in the movie.
David Slade: There were a number of scenes which just felt excessive in terms of beating the same story, so we took them out, but some of them were really nice and are great little standalones.
Wyck Godfrey: There was a great scene with Angela and Kristin that is really just kind of two girls talking about guy troubles, and it’s really, really sweet, but it took place in a section of the movie that we really had to kind of propel.
David Slade: What happens is the film has its own momentum from the script, and you start driving and you start snowballing, you start going and going and going. By the time you hit the third act you’re just blasting along. And that scene just went — (skidding noise) stop. But it’s a beautiful scene, beautifully performed, and it’s going to be a nice, little bonus for fans of the books to know that we went and shot that stuff.
WOOT!! Interesting stuff!! MORE AT MOVIESONLINE.CA
Coming off dark movies like “Hard Candy” and “30 Days of Night,” David Slade seemed like an unlikely choice for the highly anticipated “Twilight Saga: Eclipse.”
David Slade’s indie debut, 2005’s“Hard Candy,” a critically lauded thriller starring Patrick Wilson and then unknown Ellen Page, was about a photographer and his subject who engage in a deadly game of cat and mouse. He followed that with his first studio film, “30 Days of Night,” based on the comic book by Steve Niles.
That vampires-run-amok saga fared poorly at the box office, but prepared the director for his latest, “Eclipse.”
So, how did you get hired? Were you on a list?
No. I had met with Summit on a couple of projects that didn’t come to fruition. They seemed to like me, and when it came to “New Moon,” they asked me — but I never even got to say yes before Chris was doing it.So when this came up — they sent me a script for “New Moon” and they sent me the script for this — I read it and I thought this one was superior. One of the things for the director is you got to have a good story. Even if you have the most expensive budget in the world, or even if you’ve got the best actors in the world, the story is what’s going to sell it.
Also, being completely candid, how often do you get the opportunity to do a romance if you’ve done two horror movies? So it was a great way to test myself.
Was it hard joining a huge franchise?
It wasn’t anything that concerned me. The important thing was to make the best movie I could.
In terms of the cycle of the novels, this one is more mature, more grown-up, a lot darker, a lot more scary. So it was going to be a different look, a little bit of difference in the performances.
But at no point was there ever a dichotomy between serving the phenomena and making a film. I felt that if I tried to focus too much on the phenomenon, the fans and the other films, that I would go crazy.
Summit has so much riding on the “Twilight” series. Everything must have been a committee decision.
You can get every single person who needs to make a decision at Summit into the bathroom. So it’s not as many as you think.
Summit is a studio like any other studio, and in this day and age, you have to know how to work with studios. But the main thing is, as long as you’re on the same page when you go in, you stay on the same page. You’ll have your ups and downs, but mostly you can make the film that you want to make.
What did they want input on?
Largely big general points like, “Don’t make Edward ugly in this scene. Make sure he’s not in the sun because he should sparkle.”
MTV Rough Cuts posted a couple of video interviews with Director, David Slade. Let’s take a look!

Wooot! Its David Slade y’all! He’s done this great and insightful interview with IGN.
David Slade posted a note at the official Twilight Saga Facebook page!
Dear fans of The Twilight Saga,
I want to congratulate you for reaching over 6 million fans on The Twilight Saga Facebook page.
It’s hard to fathom that it was just over one year ago that I started constructing this third and epic adventure which takes place in the town of Forks.
I want to share a story about one of our days of shooting with you.
It was a Friday night and the rain was relentless. We were at La Push to shoot the tribe’s histories, a great speech by Billy Black. We had Taylor and Kristen and the whole wolf pack around a campfire as the heavens let loose on us.
Gil Birmingham was in fine form as the rain hammered down on us all, we adjusted our lights so that the rain vanished into the black of night.
We constructed a tent over the scene to keep everyone dry as we worked, every 15 minutes or so we would have to tip it to stop the collecting rain from splitting the fabric.
For some reason still unknown, around 3am, the wolf pack stood exactly in the way of several gallons of rainwater as it was being cleared. Being the wolf pack, they just laughed it off as they stood there soaked to the bone.
We worked through the mud and the rain all night, until we had the scene perfected.
As we left, dawn was now cracking and in the dim light I passed a small army of fans who had braved the weather for the entire night, still standing there, holding drenched flowers and waiting to get a glimpse of our actors.
So, to those of you who stood behind our security, who waited in line at theatres overnight, to those of you who just love these stories, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is a love letter to you.
Each day I felt the weight of your favourite scenes, your favourite lines, your dreams and your imagination.
It has been an unforgettable journey, and now as I finalise the last prints to ready the film for your local theaters, I cannot wait for you to see it.
The past 24 hours had rumours and speculation about the ‘drama’ happening during the reshoots/pick up filming of The Twilight saga: Eclipse in Vancouver has been circulating in the Twilight Universe. Thanks to David Slade for clearing up the air with his latest tweet!
As we are now awaiting for this Eclipse novella to be released on noon June 7th until July 5th, to be available online at www.breetanner.com, Jodelle Ferland revealed about the times she read the manuscript of Bree’s story.
MTV Hollywood Crush has ‘Eclipse’ Star Jodelle Ferland Recalls The Major Secrecy Behind ‘Bree Tanner’ Manuscript.
“I was allowed to read the story, but I had to actually go to set to read it. I couldn’t have a copy because they have to be careful. I had to sit in a trailer with somebody there with me at all times because people can take pictures or whatever they want,” Jodelle said.
She explained the circumstances surrounding the humorous photo that shows her sitting next to a bucket filled with the ashes of her copy of the novella.
“After I read the story, we were supposed to destroy it, get rid of it, but, since we were filming on location, we didn’t really have a shredder or anything. We didn’t exactly know what to do and then it kind of came to us: well, we can just burn it,” she said. “We put it in a bucket and we burnt it and threw a match in there. It was actually kind of hard. It took forever to burn.”
Jodelle Ferland interview on ‘Urban Rush’ found here in the video below:
MTV Movies Blog has kindly provided a Bree Tanner Cheat Sheet: Everything You Need To Know About New ‘Twilight Novella.
An “Eclipse” Exclusive:
If you’ve only been watching the “Twilight” movies or read the first two books, don’t be shocked that you have no idea who Bree Tanner is. In fact, don’t be upset if you read “Eclipse” and still have no idea who she is. Tanner is a character introduced a startlingly short amount of time before she dies in “Eclipse” and could be considered (to everyone except Stephenie Meyer) to be a throwaway character.
A Short Life:
Tanner is only introduced 10 pages before she is killed off in Victoria’s war against the Cullens and the Quileute werewolf tribe. However, of all the newborn vampires discussed in “Eclipse,” Tanner was one of the few to be named and introduced to the readers. Unfortunately, it didn’t take very long after she was turned into a vampire for her to meet her end … again.
Dramatic Death Scene:
It turns out Tanner isn’t the best newborn vampire among them all, and she isn’t a big fan of killing innocents and drinking their blood. She tries to join forces with the Cullen clan and adapt to their “vegetarian vampire” lifestyle, but ends up being killed by Felix on the orders of Jane, a member of the Volturi guard (played by Dakota Fanning in the film), in the final battle.
A big part of the story in “Eclipse” surrounds the bad-girl vampire Victoria creating an army of newborn vampires in the Seattle area so she can wage war on Edward Cullen, who killed her beau James way back in “Twilight.” When a vampire is first created, it is at its strongest, so Victoria went around recklessly creating vampires so she could have an extremely powerful army behind her. Tanner was just one of the fatalities.
The trouble with the first-person perspective of “The Twilight Saga” is that the reader can’t read what is happening firsthand beyond what Bella Swan sees with her own eyes. Much like “Midnight Sun” gave (some) of the details behind what happened elsewhere in “Twilight,” “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” will show what happened in Seattle with Victoria during “Eclipse.” But since much of “Eclipse” is devoted to the characters wondering what exactly was going on in Seattle, seeing it through the eyes of a secondary character like Tanner is a smart companion piece to the book.
Unseen First Life:
Unfortunately for Tanner, the world will never know what happened to her before she became a vampire. She was introduced into “Eclipse” after she was a newborn and “The Short Second Life” will start off the same way. There is a chance of flashbacks telling about her life before becoming a vampire, but the way Meyer described the novella on her Web site made it seem as though Tanner was the narrator solely so the reader could see what went on in Seattle, not to learn her past.
In The Movies:
“Eclipse” director David Slade at least had more of a heads-up than fans and retailers did about “The Short Second Life,” and he cast 14-year-old Jodelle Ferland in the role. Slade and Ferland, as well as Bryce Dallas Howard (Victoria) and Xavier Samuel (Riley), were given advance copies of the book to read so they could have a complete knowledge of what went on in Seattle for the film.

David Slade twittered again! Thank you David Slade for the update since there isn’t really much to update on Eclipse for the past days.
“Cutting like crazy, the film is getting closer working through the weekends again,adding more EDWARD!”
Kristen Stewart says “David Slade is a technical director”:
While at the Sundance Film Festival promoting The Runaways (in which she portrays rock legend Joan Jett alongside Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie from the band of the same name), Kristen Stewart was kind enough to share her views on the forthcoming third leg to the Twilight saga films, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
Particularly, Stewart shared her opinions onEclipse‘s director, David Slade, who fans of the series have come to know only through his use of the social networking site, Twitter.
Said she about Slade, according to HitFlix, “He’s a very technical director. Very.” Stewart continued on to describe Slade as “thoughtful,” “conceptual,” and “deliberate.”
We’re excited and definitely can’t wait for June. He will bring something different to the plate!

Wooooooooo…. he’s giving me the goosebumps! Excited goosebumps!!!
MTV NEWS has Bryce Dallas, Kristen, Robert & Taylor talking about Eclipse.
“I had already read the books. I had actually seen ‘Twilight’ several times, much to my husband’s chagrin,” Howard told MTV News while promoting her upcoming release, “The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond.” “Whenever Robert Pattinson would come onscreen, I would grab my husband’s hands and start squeezing, and he’d be like, ‘Stop squeezing my hand!’ “
Though Howard felt intimidated joining the tight-knit cast so close to the start of production, one of her biggest challenges may have been maintaining continuity between Lefevre’s Victoria and her portrayal of the revenge-bent bloodsucker. While Howard and Lefevre share similar physical traits, including signature flaming-red tresses, Howard put much care toward embodying the already-established character.
Thanks a heap Bryce!
*Drum Roll* THAT’S A WRAP! Filming for Eclipse is over! Job well done to David and Co
David Slade is not only a great director – he’s also a great photographer! I think its in the job description. Anyways here more of UTTERLY GORGEOUS images that he has taken on the set of The Twilight Saga:Eclipse.
Answering much asked photo question: I use a few camera formats, I rely on my Nikkor lenses, acquired over the years mostly from the 1960s. I started shooting these pics with a D80 and now use a D700. I also Use an analogue film camera, a Nikon F3, all with Nikkor lenses.
Nikki Reed Brasil has some pictures from the filming of ‘Rosalie’s Attack’ in Eclipse.
David Slade has sent out another one of his abstract photos fresh off The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, film set over on Twitter. NICE!!
New Moon is featured in November’s issue of EMPIRE Magazine. Apart from getting GIANT ‘good quality paper/glossy’ posters of Edward & Bella’, you’ll also get to read a great article on the movie!
If you guys don’t want the poster(??GIANT leh??) and just wanna read the article. Thanks to mr.pattinson.com cos they’ve scanned it! Head on there to read more.
Remember Rob on the cover of SciFi Magazine? Well Jan has informed us that the magazine is now available at Kinokuniya priced at SGD10.90
Catch a glimpse of a video on The Making of New Moon. Apparently the clip was attached to Twilight when bought over on Comcast (movie on demand). We’re sure we’ll get to see more of the full version when the promotions for New Moon’s release is in full steam as well as in the DVD. Lookout for the promotions on cable TV such as HBO or channel 5. They did the same last year!
So for now.. enjoy.. Thanks designedtokill & lion_lamb.
Jackson Rathborne apparently got injured during rehearsals for Eclipse.

“David has a darker sensibility, so it clicks,” Rosenberg said. “The story has a slightly darker tone. I mean, it goes into a full-out battle, so it is darker in the nature of what it is. David was the perfect director for it.”
Gil Birmingham posted this picture on his Facebook.
While David Slade posted this photo on his Twitter account yesterday.
Can you guys actually make out the blurry cast members in front of the camera??
Radar Online has more pictures of the cast and crew on the film set of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Carlisle (in a Killers tee!) and the Wolfpack (in bathrobes) with Emily and the director David Slade. They seem to be waiting around and discussing at what looks like the red walls of Jacob’s house.
Wonder what scene they are shooting…maybe mangled Jacob inside?
I had a chance to see a new set being filmed for Eclipse… the scene where the newborns arrive in Forks. It’s a picturesque scene, with mountains and water framing the background of the shot, and a sparse unoccupied beach for the newborns to arrive on… then they disappear into the forest. The vampire newborns looked absolutely chilling, and their rugged military-like outfits along with steely, determined glares just added to the mood. Filmed early in the morning, this scene was designed to look as if it had been shot at night, possibly just after dusk or just before dawn.
In this scene in the video (coming soon), you’ll see the Director ask them to go underwater (”Under water!), then he counts as they are rolling with the movie cameras “OK, Riley”… then the first actor emerges (my guess is they were using “Riley” as the code word, since the first actor that emerges is NOT Riley). Then the Director calls them out “2…. and 3″… and the other actor and then Riley emerges from the water. The vampires moved slowly, slinking through the water but very clearly with purpose.
With David Slade in control of ‘Eclipse’, the film will be more “guy-friendly”. MTV caught up with Ashley Greene recently and she tells us this:
Listen to the interview here
Just as co-star Taylor Lautner told MTV News on Sunday, Greene said Slade’s taking the third “Twilight” film in a darker direction. “I think it’ll be different,” Greene said. “I think it’s going to be a battle between the studio and the director, and it’s going to be a hard balance, ’cause I think he’s … a little more focused on it being real and maybe it being gorier and a little dark and kind of dramatic.”
I’m sure the cast can keep up with the momentum and deliver it well!
David Slade is back on Twitter and just look at this beautiful mountain picture that he tweeted while filming Eclipse. Here’s a series of Tweets from David:
#1: “6am mountain. A black bear strayed close to us. We shoot solid through, sunburnt and tired we return at sunset”
#2: “Yes we were shooting Bella and Jacob’s kiss on the mountain, its really a grueling emotional thing to have to shoot over and over.”
#3: “We had paparazzi on the ridge about 1/2mile away, their pictures will look bizarre they would have had to use 1000mm+ lenses.”
#4: “Really really long paparazzi lenses make everything look terrible, one snuck close to set and was kicked off, another was arrested last week”
#5: “I don’t mind these pap pics, its just annoying when it stops us from shooting, or the images are completely unrepresentative of our shots.”
David Slade gave us a first look on ‘Eclipse’ with this Taylor Lautner’s photo during camera lighting tests.
Woohoo!!! Check out his Twitter for Eclipse-related updates.
UPDATE: Here’s the latest photo David just twitted!
Taylor Lautner Pic from set, yes that is him mid backflip. He does it from standing still.
THEY ARE BACK (except for Rob & Kristen) IN VANCOUVER! The cast were spotted having dinner together. It’s back to work – with a new director! Remember, it’s David Slade for Eclipse.

Melissa Rosenberg is the screenwriter for Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon & Eclipse.
The screenwriter is the heart of a film. He/She gives life to the characters and develops the plot in such a way as to capture the viewer’s interest. At the same time, she has to apply the required technical film-making jargon to describe the visual aspects of the story and effectively depict emotion through action and symbolism.
…..filming this fall is The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, but Peter Facinelli is confident that both can be done harmoniously. Says he, “They’re starting in October some time, and I think we’re starting Eclipse in August, so if everything stays according to plan it’ll be close, but we’ll be able to squeeze both. The good news is that I’m not in every scene in Eclipse and I’m not in every scene in Nurse Jackie, so I’m sure I’ll be able to do both.”
Speaking of Eclipse, I asked Facinelli if there was anything about director David Slade that he looked forward to working with him for. Said he, “I’ve heard he’s very intense, and I heard he’s a great actor’s director, so I’m excited to work with him.”
The changed directorial hands, too, seems to be exciting to Facinelli. Says he, “Whenever I’ve done television (Six Feet Under, or Damages, or Nurse Jackie) we worked with different directors each episode. So, it makes it interesting because they come in and it’s the same material, but you get a different perspective on it. And that’s how it’s been on this one too. Chris Weitz has brought his vision; Catherine Hardwicke had hers. And, now, we get to see what David Slade’s going to bring … It’s exciting.
What will differ about Slade’s Twilight? “I don’t really know. We haven’t even started shooting yet.” While the director says he has a basic idea of what he wants to do with it, he is more concerned with telling a good story than being “different.” “It is darker, and there is a lot more action than the previous two,” he admits. “The third book is from Bella’s point of view, but the film will be more objective.” And just how will he do that? “We are going to focus on the origin stories of several characters, like Jasper, and show how Bella will decide between Edward and Jacob.”
David didn’t read the books until the studio was interested in bringing him in – then he did his homework. “It was tough for a middle-aged man to get into,” he admits, “from the point of view of a 17 year old girl. But once I got past that, I found them to be really good stories.” He is especially excited about the great script from Dexter writer/producer Melissa Rosenberg. Right now, they are still in preproduction, with plans to start shooting later in the year.

Recently, the New Moon/Eclipse cast including David Slade & Stephenie Meyer gathered at a Vancouver restaurant for the New Moon Wrap Party and Eclipse Kick-Off Party. Vancity Allie was there to cover the event. Lots of great pictures too, check out her blog entry!
Allie’s friend, Amy, with Stephenie Meyer
There was an all-cast New Moon Wrap Party and Eclipse Kick-Off Party happening at Blue Water. All the cast members were partying in a private room at the restaurant. David Slade was there to kick things off, Stephenie Meyer also, as well as Rachelle Lefevre (Victoria), Rob Pattinson (Edward), Kristen Stewart (Bella), Taylor Lautner (Jacob), Ashley Greene (Alice), Michael Sheen (Aro), Jamie Bower (Caius), Charlie Bewley (Demetri), Dakota Fanning (Jane), Cameron Bright (Alec) and I’m pretty sure I saw Melissa Rosenberg (screenwriter) there.
I saw a couple cast members holding thick manuscripts, including Rob, so I’m PRETTY sure they were possibly giving out Eclipse scripts (with David Slade, Stephenie and Melissa doesn’t it seem possible?). How cool is that?
A Twitter update from Michael Sheen:
OMG!!!! They just did a photoshoot for The Volturi! Thank you Michael Sheen for the update
