What is a producer? According to The Producers Guild: "A movie producer initiates, coordinates, supervises and controls, either on his own authority, or subject to the authority of an employer, all aspects of the motion-picture and/or television production process, including creative, financial, technological and administrative. A Producer is involved throughout all phases of production from inception to completion, including coordination, supervision and control of all other talents and crafts, subject to the provisions of their collective bargaining agreements and personal service contracts."
So who is Wyck Godfrey? He is one of the three men (Greg Mooradian, Wyck Godfrey, and Mark Morgan) who produce the Twilight film. We had the opportunity to meet Wyck on our trip to the set of the film this past April. He shared many things with us about his experience on this film an many others. In one conversation Wyck was kind enough to share a story about the scene they had shot the night before, the scene we commonly refer to as…The Meadow.
The day had been rainy and throughout most of the rehearsals it poured. Wyck had been hoping for just a small enough break in the weather so that they could get the shot. The shot we are all waiting for, when Edward reveals himself to Bella in the sunlight. As the day wore on it seemed that all hope was lost as there seemed to be no end in sight to the rain. And then as if by divine intervention at approximately 6pm the rain slowed, the clouds parted and the sun broke through, down on the meadow and Edward in all their glory . The shot worked out perfectly with even the sun playing its role.
The Twilight Lexicon is now pleased to present. An on-set Twilight interview with Producer Wyck Godfrey.
Thank you Wyck for not only sharing your thoughts with us on the movie, but for working so diligently to stay true to the story we all love. This is a producer who is fully committed to telling the visual story of Twilight. We are lucky to have him overseeing the project.
