Catherine Hardwicke will be leading a directing workshop at the New Filmmakers Day and the Vancouver International Film Festival’s Film and TV Forum on October 1, and the Twilight movie will be part of her discussion.
Titled The Art of Prep: Directing Workshop, the 75-minute seminar will focus on creating tight shot lists, script development, the advantages of storyboards and other tips.
It will include handouts, audience participation throughout and examples illustrated with clips from Hardwicke’s work, including Thirteen.
… Hardwicke also will discuss her experience directing Twilight, the vampire blockbuster that grossed $69.6 million on opening weekend — the highest opening ever for a film by a female director.
“I’ll talk about how we prepped the treetop sequence and the seven different locations we used to film that — what was the first unit shot, what was the second unit shot, what did Rob [Pattinson] and Kristen [Stewart] do, where we put the platform.”
