Twilight Contest Winner Blogs About Chris Weitz Interview

January 12, 2010

kristen-stewart-twilight-saga-new-moonTwilight ran a cool contest last month through its Twitter account in which the winner would receive a personal phone call from New Moon director Chris Weitz.  Well, it happened, and the girl who won recently blogged about the experience on her LiveJournal.  She basically conducted an interview with Weitz, and here were some of the Q and As:

I know Edward’s car is now a dark silver, but was there any reason for the change?

Availability. Volvo wanted to introduce a new car into the series, instead of the older model. So they provided a newer model, brown Volvo. Immediately we knew it had to be repainted, and chose a dark, non-shiny, black colour. It added more to the first Edward scene in the movie, the feeling is upbeat but the colour of the vehicle adds to the danger lurking.

How did you decide to shoot the scene where the months are passing by, considering the books only name the months that pass?

We originally thought we could use a blank screen with names of the months passing but felt that it was best to portray depression visually. CGI was used and the windows were covered by green screen. We used a robotic camera for revolvement to mimic the original hand camera as much as possible. I’m not sure if you noticed but with each revolvement the room changes, there are less pictures of her friends and the room gets more sparse.

Very cool!  Read the full conversation here.
