The Vancouver Sun has a new article up about what it’s been like for the production team to film in Vancouver.
When asked why all the secrecy, here was the response of co-producer Bill Bannerman
“To preserve the content of the material you’re trying to capture, with such a large fan base who know the nuances of the books so well, you have to go over-and-above ordinary means of protection. It’s to give the director and the group the space they need to work,” he said, adding the fan fervour is understandable.
It’s the nature of the beast. They analyze and want to know, but you’re building a film one shot at a time. So when people see only one piece of the puzzle, they might take it out of context. It only represents two per cent of the grander scheme.”
It also seems like Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart had just as much fun filming on the beach as the last time they were there, the day we were on set and Catherine Hardewicke described as “the day that made grown men cry” and “My worst day of filming ever.”
According to The Sun, Joan Miller, head of the Vancouver Island North Film Commission said:
“They [Kristen and Taylor] were there to do a job and they took it very seriously,” she said, shivering as she recalled how Stewart and Lautner had to work in rain, howling wind and even snow at one point. “I was freezing and I was wearing fleeces so I can only imagine how they must have felt having to say their lines over and over dressed in T-shirts.”
