Condon's Special Note about Breaking Dawn!

A friendly approach and a wise move on the part of Breaking Dawn's director Bill Condon as he posted a special note on facebook to update fans on his team to bring together a perfect sequel:) I love the choices they made with the crew and my anticipation meter is shattered :D


Hello fans!

Has it really been five months (and a day) since my last dispatch?  In my defense, they've been five months spent immersed in the world of TWILIGHT - something I'm sure you can all appreciate.  We're in the thick of pre-production now, juggling everything from casting to storyboarding to location scouting, getting it all ready to go, but I do want to take a moment to announce to you exclusively a few of the amazing production team members who are hard at work alongside me, bringing these movies to life.  I hope you'll be as excited about them as I am:


Guillermo Navarro, who won an Academy Award for the beautiful PAN'S LABYRINTH, is our cinematographer.  Guillermo and I have been painstakingly planning each shot, with a team of very talented storyboard artists.


Michael Wilkinson, our costume designer, is bringing his brilliant vision to the styles of all your favorite characters.  Michael's created fantastic looks for 300, WATCHMEN, and the upcoming TRON: LEGACY - just wait 'til you see his take on the vampire witnesses who come to Forks from around the globe.


Jean Black, our makeup designer, has worked extensively with the Coen Brothers and David Fincher, most recently making exquisite, award-winning contributions to THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON.  I'm honored to be working with her.


Richard Sherman, with whom I made GODS AND MONSTERS and KINSEY, is on-board as our production designer.  Richard's one of my oldest collaborators and a terrific designer, and you may be interested to know that he also happens to be a lifelong vampire aficionado.


Our Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor John Bruno has been responsible for some of the most memorable special effects ever, with his groundbreaking work on display in everything from POLTERGEIST to AVATAR.  He and his team are working intensely to develop solutions to the host of special effects challenges that Stephenie created for us in BREAKING DAWN, including that remarkable kid...


Wonderful, imaginative people all and very exciting, intense times for us.  Even with the months of work we've already put in, we're barely underway on the journey, and I do hope to get back to you much sooner next time with more news.  Until then, thanks for your warm reception and continued support!


Very best regards,

Bill

The making of BD is going to be a big project as we all knew it would. Hopefully, it will be well worth the wait-- because it is going to be a huge wait.

pan's Labirynth was one of my favorite films ever I hope u saw that Jan. It's spanish but nevertheless no translation is required and the story is awesome:) and yes BD is going to be outstanding I'm sure.

Haven't seen that one-- will keep it in mind. Hope it doesn't have subtitles as I think watching those types of movies are way too much work. Besides, one misses out on the cinema part just trying to keep up with reading the subs.

But I will have to look for that one. Your recommendations are always ones that I seem to enjoy as much as you.

Half the fun of BD is the build-up, so we must revel in that while we can.
