Twilight Director’s Notebook
By Catherine Hardwicke
Hachette HB, RRP NZ$39.99

The story of how we made the movie - get the inside story!

Worldwide embargo release 17 March 2009-02-27

The folk at Hachette are rather excited about this one!

This intimate full-colour ‘notebook’, designed to replicate the one director Catherine Hardwicke kept on and off the set, takes you through the creative process that went into making Stephenie Meyer’s breathtaking novel come alive on screen – from casting to costumes, stunts to storyboards. With never-before-seen notes, sketches and photographs taken directly from the director’s personal notebook, this book includes everything from her visual inspirations, to step-by-step breakdowns of action sequences, to a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most pivotal moments in the creation of the film, and much more. Get the inside story – this collectable notebook will be a must-have addition to every Twilight fan’s bookshelf.

The Twilight phenomenon shows no sign of abating and the four books in the series – Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, along with the movie tie-in edition of Twilight continue to dominate the top five spots on the New Zealand Booksellers List.

With the release of the Twilight movie, Catherine Hardwicke holds the record for the biggest movie opening for a female director – and the Twilight movie is the highest grossing movie of all time for Hoyts in New Zealand.
The Twilight DVD is scheduled to release on April 22 2009.
