Breaking Dawn Birth
I rarely go full-on three exclamation points, but this video definitely deserves it.
Check out a newly-released clip from the Breaking Dawn Part 1 DVD & Blu-Ray which features some bloopers from the gory birth scene.
How did anyone manage to keep a straight face on set during this process?17 Comments
Breaking Dawn | The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 | Bill Condon | ReelzChannel Presents | Movie Trailer | Review
Reelz Channel’s Steve Patterson interviewed Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon at the Breaking Dawn Part 1 junket. Bill praises Kristen Stewart’s performance and dedication, plus directing the last installments of the Twilight Saga.
Great interview with Bill! Loved that he said he said it was the book end to Catherine Hardwicke’s movie. That is where they met and now finally together.
Thank you ReelzChannel!1 Comment
We interviewed Robert Pattinson a while back and he said the only other director he could imagine handling the blood ofBreaking Dawn was David Cronenberg [The Fly, Naked Lunch].
And then he went to work for him! [In 2012'sCosmopolis] But I know what he means because it is very, very intense in the last part—it’s almost like a horror movie. And he’s certainly delivered the most intense images in the last decade or so. I tried to get my Cronenberg on a little bit and I think within the confines of a PG-13 rating, I think we’ve got something that’s pretty powerful.
Everyone has been saying for years how hard it would be to make Breaking Dawn PG-13. How did you pull it off?
The whole movie is very immersive, kind of like in the book, which is in the point of view of Bella and Jacob [Taylor Lautner]. We tried to do the same thing in the movie—there’s a whole chunk where you get inside the head of a wolf. And in terms of the birth, it was, “Let’s do it from Bella’s point of view. Let’s see whatever she can see.” Once you decide on an approach like that, it’s amazing how powerful you can be without being overly explicit. She gets glimpses of a lot of things—and hears everything—but it’s not the cutaway to teeth clawing through flesh. But you certainly know what’s happening.
I love that! That’s what we see in that little preview of the behind the scenes from Entertainment Tonight! Where Rob and Taylor are looking at the camera.
Can we also have Bella’s point of view during the honeymoon scene too? Let’s see whatever Bella sees! *wink* *wink* LOL!

Collider interviewed special effects supervisors Dennis Muren, Phil Tippett and John Rosengrant recently for promoting Jurassic Park on Blu-Ray. Phil Tippett is the one of the Breaking Dawn visual effects supervisor and has been working on the Twilight Saga since New Moon with the CGI wolves and John Rosengrant from Legacy Effects is special effects supervisor and is working on the Bella birth sequence in Breaking Dawn Part 1. Phil praised working with director Bill Condon.
Earlier today I got to talk with Dennis Muren, Phil Tippett and John Rosengrantabout their amazing work on Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. They were talking to the press this morning to help promote the October 25th Blu-ray release. While I’ll have the full interview online next month, for all you Twilight fans, I was able to ask Tippett and Rosengrant about their involvement in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.
While Tippett talked about working with director Bill Condon and how the film has over a thousand visual effects, Rosengrant talked about the Bella birth sequence and how they combined makeup effects on Kristen Stewart with CGI to make her look extra thin. Also, they’re using a “little bit of puppets and some hybrid effects. Hopefully we bring a realism to that sequence.”
Here’s the part of the interview where they talk about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Look for the full interview next month. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 opens on November 18th.
I can’t wait to see the special effects for the birth scene. *shivers* Puppets? This is getting exciting!
Legacy Effects is also involved with Snow White and The Huntsman and The Hunger Games.7 Comments

Translation via Robsteners“The end was a shock for us”Romantic, hot – and painful! In this way, the “Twilight” stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson experienced the final of the vampire saga.TV Movie: Finally! The wedding bells are ringing for Hollywood’s dream couple. For now, though, only in cinemas: In the first part of the “Twilight” showdown (part 2 starts in 2012) Kristen as a beautiful mortal, and Rob as a sexy vampire pledge their troth either to other. And: For the first time there are some really hot bed scenes! We met the young stars for an interview at San Diego’s ComicCon.TV Movie: Be honest: Was the film sex difficult for you?Rob: Oh yes! I felt really uncomfortable.TV Movie: Too many people on set?
Rob: No, a fear had rather something to do with Taylor and his fantastic body. Jacob, as a werwolf, has bared all already in the last two films. And to be honest, I can’t keep up with him.TV Movie: The fans will be pleased with the new passion nevertheless…Kristen: After four years it’s about time! (laughs)Rob: They’re very emotional scenes. For the first time I felt like a human, not like a vampire.TV Movie: What do you think of Bella’s wedding dress?
Kristen: I love it! It’s old fashioned, though, but that’s exactly what I like.TV Movie: Would you wear such a dress on your own wedding?Kristen: No, no. But it fits for Bella, and that’s most important.TV Movie: Do you believe in marriage?Kristen: I like the thought of two people staying together for the rest of their lives. For me, however, this doesn’t need to be sealed with signatures.TV Movie: How would you describe the first part of “Breaking Dawn”?Kristen: Mature is the right word. This time it’s not about fighting, but the fact that we start a family.TV Movie: The film is also very dark…Kristen: That’s right. Bella keeps saying that she would die for a life with Edward. In the movie she shows how seriously she takes it.TV Movie: Is Edward the great hero like everyone thinks?Rob: For me he’s never been the great hero. Edward isn’t interested in the rest of the world at all. Just at the end.TV Movie: With the birth of his vampire daughter…Rob: Exactly. The moment when the baby comes into world, he no longer thinks only of himself.TV Movie: Part 2 is filmed already, the Twilight saga is over. What does it feel like?
Rob: I’m a bit paranoid and think after every film “That was my last one…”TV Movie: What will you miss the most?Kristen: I’ve been living in a different world for 4 years and I really liked it there (laughs). I’ll miss everything.Rob: Same for me. Especially the last day was a shock. I’ve never wanted to think about the end, and then it was suddenly there. Now we have to live with it.
Love it! Rob, I’m sure you can keep up. We’ve seen those back muscles! LOL!
I love these two. :)17 Comments
