Special effects for the Twilight movie???

Discussion about the Twilight movie. It's all speculation until Summit Films actually produces a script and casts it.

I'm assuming they'll be able to imply the strength and allure of their scents by the reactions of everybody around them. But through out the book, Edward does a lot of explaining so he could just through that into one of his many explanations. Or maybe Bella will bring it up. These are a couple of ideas.

I agree that there are some things which, if they cannot be pulled off without the cheesiness, should not be in the movie. As much as I love all the details that Stephenie has put into her books, if these details cannot be done and look believable then I think I'd be less disappointed if they were not in the movie as opposed to being crushed because they've been butchered. Just my thoughts though.

That's a valid point. I mean stay true and make it look cheesy or have it out and have us a bit disappointed? Which evil do you prefer kind of question? But then again, the whole vampire sparkling thing is a big part of the vampire in myth in Twilight. Maybe they can twist in a way that they can portray their aversion to the sun in a similar way to the sparkling but something that doesn't look cheesy?

I had the same exact impression. I never thought they just glittered. I thought it would be like a diamond sparkling in the sun. It may not seem like the movie would need many effects, but I'm afraid that the effects they do need won't be done well.

I was thinking that she was referring to them sparkling like the way asphalt glitters when the sun shines on it just right.

That's what I allways thought of, anyway.

Sparkling

I always thought it was like a crystal or diamond, but on his skin and softer, more subtle. But that's just me.

Perhaps it's like shimmer lotion? That makes your skin sparkle except a bit more extreme?

I'm really hoping the special effects will be good in this movie. They have to be, this story is basically focused around all of those things that need the special effects. I hope that they can make the sparkly skin look real and pretty, and not unreal and fake. Also, I wonder if they're going to show Edward running super fast; probably just a blur. Wow, there are a lot of other things that I can't think of right now.

I agree. I've been thinking about the special effects alot lately. Some of the actors have let a little slip. Some have said they will be using harnesses and some have said that will be using things to help look like they are running fast. So the physical things are all set. But i'm still unsure about the sparkling skin too. And what about the car crash at school. I could barely picture that in my head!! How are they going to do it and make it look legit. Will we be able to see Alices visions with her and hear what Edward hears? What about with Jasper?
