Video: David Slade Talks to Vancouver Press

Video and more from the Vancouver-based press:

David also spoke to the Vancouver Sun:

“”Eclipse was a lot broader . . . but it’s still a character-based drama. That’s what I really enjoyed about it,” he says. “I think it’s also a much more adult film than (the previous two), because the characters are becoming more mature. There’s loads of fun stuff to play with, and because we treated it as a drama, the transformation (of character) takes place.”

The substance was always bloody and meaty, but Slade says the pragmatics of the whole ordeal were anything but easy. He feels exhausted just thinking about the experience.

“It was a 50-day shoot, with many 16-hour days,” he says.

To make things even more challenging, the cast was losing itself in its own Twilight cosmos. All actors have to surrender to their roles and inhabit their characters to some degree for the duration of production, so Slade was pleased his cast was taking the whole project seriously and sincerely.

Everyone was committed, he says.

“Kristen, in particular, was very tough on herself.”

Slade says because Stewart didn’t pull from her own life and her own person to play Bella Swan, she found it personally demanding to find Bella’s truth.

“She would say, ‘I don’t know who Bella is to me.’ In a lot of ways, I think she felt Bella was the antithesis to her, which presented a lot of challenges for Kristen. . . . She would beat herself up about it, because she wants to be there. She never wants to leave a scene undone.

“There were tears,” says Slade.”

    Then why can’t Kristen cry on camera? Like when she goes to see Jacob after he is injured. How could she not cry for that scene? She just sits there.
