'Breaking Dawn Part 2' Special Effects: Company Involved Shares Details

Edward and Bella featured in one of several new stills from the film

For "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2" RODEO FX provided a number of digital background scenes, depicting various jungle and city locations around the world. The company also produced a number of green-screen comps and headshot replacements.

"We're delighted to have contributed VFX to two editions of the Twilight Saga series, one of the most successful motion picture franchises in Hollywood history," Mr. Moreau said.

Terry Windell, VFX Supervisor for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2," said, "Rodeo FX delivered to us a number of terrific environments, in particular a sequence depicting a scene from the Volturi's past taking place in a Medieval Russian village for which Rodeo created the establishing matte painting. We had actors on a partial exterior set, and Rodeo provided set extensions and matte paintings as seen at dusk, with a castle in the background. They were able to extend the village with great continuity, all against very dramatic red skies. They also added fires and interactive light to this village scene, to give it a truly ominous feel. In another scene, in which an image of Brazil is projected into Edward's mind by another character, they provided a matte painting and a waterfall. The Rodeo FX team is excellent at presenting us with material that depicts a particular mood and sensibility. They did a wonderful job."

We loved all of those scenes, great job to everyone involved.
