Legacy Effects Talks About The Bella Birth Sequence In ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1′

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.

    Well … if you think about it, how else can they really do it.  I think the word “puppet” is throwing people off, but it’s a vampire/human hybrid baby.  They had to do some type of fake baby in order to make it look the way its described in the book. 

    I am having bad bad visions of the Alien scene now!  Ewwwww.  LOL
