Eclipse set update
The ever-awesome Malicious Mandy reports from the Eclipse set!
(Sept 15th) There were two sets today.
The main cast was at the same location as yesterday, where they did the fight training scene.
We also know that The Wolf-Pack is in town right now.
Peter Facinelli tweeted:Heading to work. Gonna get lost in the woods with some werewolves today.
That along with David Slade's tweets, yesterday:Forrest again today, tomorrow we do wolf shots, saw some great wolf tests today, early stages developed from New Moon wolves.
All of this leads me to believe they filmed the "battle" scene everyone is so excited for.... are there any other scenes with all the Cullen's and the wolf-pack together outdoors?
Since it was the same location as yesterday [and quite impossible to get to unless you are with the production company or breaking laws,] I didn't even bother trying to get close but instead enjoyed watching the B-Unit film. (Xavier, Jodelle and extras were all on this set)
I do know that the Main Set wrapped around dinner time and 2 fans from Florida who were at the circus (hair/make-up/wardrobe trailers/tents) entrance had an amazing opportunity to meet and get photos with several cast memebers including Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene and Elizabeth Reaser after they finished filming. (Also Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone and even a "peace sign" from David Slade)
Great Shot of one of the vampires walking back into the water to prepare to shoot them exiting water (again)
It was amazing to see how many time they shot the same thing over and over and over, then re-set the camera angles and lights to re-shoot the same thing over and over again and again. Tedious and less glamourous than people think that's for sure.
The vampires would simply go underwater once the camera was rolling then one by one emerge out of the water and walk slowly, menacingly towards to the shore. I love the darker angle David Slade is taking to this movie. I can't wait for Eclipse to come out... but I have to wait for New Moon first... which I can't wait for either :)
