Exclusive Interview: Eric Leven Visual Effects Supervisor on THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE
While speaking to actors about the movie they’re promoting is always great, if you really want to find out why certain decisions were made behind the scenes, you’ve got to talk to the filmmakers and the crew that worked on the movie. And that’s why I think fans of the Twilight movie franchise are going to enjoy my interview with Eric Leven from Tipper Studios. Because during our extended conversation, Leven (who was the visual effects supervisor on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) discussed why the wolf effects were done a certain way, the difference between Chris Weitz and David Slade on the look of New Moon and Eclipse, is Tippet Studios working on Breaking Dawn, and we also talked about 3D and other projects like Priest and Immortals.
Twilight’s ‘Breaking Dawn’ Will Be Filmed in Baton Rouge and Vancouver
Vampire stalkers better start saving their frequent flyer miles because unlike the first three installments of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn will be filmed in two locations: Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Vancouver, British Columbia.
The fourth and final book in the saga will be split into two films which will be shot simultaneously. Production starts in Louisiana this fall and then next year, once the weather has improved in Vancouver, they’ll move north to film the remaining exterior scenes.
‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ stars top celebrity fan fiction list
The stars of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse are some of the main celebrities which writers of Real Person Fanfiction (RPF) like to post about, it seems.
According to one source, three of the Twilight series’ main stars have been listed atop and among the ten most written-about celebrities in the RPF world.
Number one on the list is Taylor Lautner (“Jacob Black” in the series), and Dakota Fanning (“Jane”) and Ashley Greene (“Alice Cullen”) came in sixth and seventh respectively.
Leven is seriously bad ass. You must watch the interview. I love love love when we get to hear from those behind the scenes.
I am shocked that Edward Cullen isn’t in the top 10 of the fan fiction list. It’s a total surprise to me since my favorite fan fics include him. What do you think?
