Tidbits Take #2 (More info from the New Moon Illustrated Companion)

Thanks for all the wonderful feedback on my first "Tidbit Blog"! I really do think Chris was the perfect director to pick for this film, everything I'm reading fits so well. He just really seems to get the story and "the fans" as well. I wonder if this isn't a bit of a redemptive film for him to do, since we all know what the stuido did to him on "The Golden Compass". Of course the final film will tell the tale, but it all looks AMAZING so far!

Anyway, I've read a bit more and here are a few more items for you to ponder...

REMINDER: These are spoilers for the Illustrated companion and the film, so read at your own risk!!

Quote from Chaske Spencer "I think Sam is a person that has been thrown into extraordinary circumstances. He's had to sacrifice a lot. Sam is like the chief of police. He's taken on the mantle to be the protector and help guide the other boys who are going through the traumatic experience of becoming werewolves, because there was no one there to guide him along. Bella and Jacob's relationship is not a good thing for Sam. She's in love with a vampire, and it's thrown a wrench into what he's trying to do to protect his people."

**Quote from Taylor: "The hate that werewolves and vampires have for each other goes way back. The treaty is the most important hting, Jacob is always reminding the vampires about the treaty. So we have a scene at the end where Jacob, Bella and Edward are together and Jacob is getting kicked out. Edward is about to leave with Bella and Jacob reminds Edward, one last time "Remember the treaty." {ok this gives me shivers}

**The tattoo the wolfpack members have was designed based on a series of tales the Production Designer, David Brisban, heard while visiting the Quileute tribe. "One thread that really stuck in my mind referenced the twinning of the wolf character having to do with strength and togetherness." It is a double wolf motif and had 6 variations in both black and red, but one was chosen that is all black.

**They used full scale cutouts as a visual reference for the wolves. Each weighed 20-30 lbs and had a h*** in the side for someone to use to carry them.

**The wolves were each given characteristics based on the actors playing them, which is linked to the characters in the story. (Same=big and black) (Paul=more muscular and aggressive) (Embry=thinner and smaller)

**It was important to make Jacob's wolf "iconic". In the animation he had to carry himself with an air of pride and nobility.

**The animators studied real wolves in packs to help them get a deeper feeling for the creature they were creating.

**The main model was Jacob's wolf, all the others are based off of that.

**Taylor did his own stunt for the "phase scene" and not only had to leap over Kristen, but was rigged so he'd stop in the air before the transformation. His body was also replaced with a CG version for part of the shot.

**The 1st trailer that was at the MTV awards was a "dress rehersal". They didn't have all the time they needed to put some of the effects in during Jacob's transformation and have since added to it.

**"What's special about Jacob is he's the only one who transforms in mid-air..." quote from Taylor

**The Nomadic or Feral vampires have a new look in New Moon, more elegant, less rock and roll, this was at Chris' direction. The feeling was that they had been on a killing spree and had personal effects from their victims, and thus better clothes.

**Victoria is more stylish, less earthy with clothes that flow and show movement

**Laurent is more stylish, yet Edi asked to keep the bare chest showing under his jacket.

**Rachelle did her stunts during the forest scene where her character is being chased by Charlie and the "hunters". She was swinging through the woods on wires.

**One of the pictures of Rachelle from the companion shows her sitting on the floor in front of a pile of ashes, could this be James??

**Quote from Taylor:"I definatly think it's a prejudice the werewolves have towards all vampires. And, especially for Jacob, it's because Edward Cullen, the guy who has his girl. But, I gotta admit, {the Cullens} are pretty decent vampires"

Okay...I need to read some more, and then I'll come back with installment 3, if you would like??
