Producer: Wyck Godfrey

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.

  2. That was a great interview…one of the best. I’m really looking forward to this movie. I think it is going to be awsome. What Wyck said about Catherine relating to the adolecents. You can tell that in her persona. She seems to be in touch with her inner teenager.

  5. YouTube – Twilight -Bella/Edward I Don’t Wanna Love Her

    perfect love song for Bella and Edward found on Youtbe..

  6. Wyck, I know everything about the controversey with Breaking Dawn as a movie. You should just make 2 parts to Breaking dawn. Each Movie could be like 2 1/2 hours long.

  7. The traditional Hollywood studios can no longer determine just whatthe public want or can getas they did prior to now. At the time you additionally distribution internet and headlines webpages, from chat to entire videos. It’s really a brand-new society. Much of it very good, some not.

[…] So far you have heard from behind the scenes producer Scott Murray whose favorite book in the series is Eclipse for it’s action and character plot.  And then came producer Wyck Godfrey understanding of the need for reality in the film as well as his admitted love of Werewolves got us all very excited for the final product.  Now we will hear from the man who caught the vision first, Twilight producer Greg Mooradian.  Greg first fell in love with the book Twilight long before we ever saw the book on the store shelves.  With an advance copy in hand Greg soon began to pursue the project.  Greg admitted later that day which book in the series was his favorite; for the wonderful producer Twilight reigns supreme for its emotionally charged love story.  It was a thrill to spend time with him on set and as you are about to see, the film is in very good hands.

  3. […] We know many of you are planning trips to Portland this summer to tour the many majestic Twilight filming sites.  We wanted to be sure that you added the location of the Meadow Scene to your itinerary!  The meadow scene was shot in Carver Park in Portland, Oregon.  This was a closed set (Summit wants this one to be a suprise) so there are no filming pictures, but after producer Wyck Godfry’s description of shooting, its a must see on any Portland trip.
