Twilight “Eclipse” director David Slade thanks fans
By Kim Palacios
HollywoodNews.com: Via the official Twilight Facebook site yesterday, “Eclipse” director David Slade posted a heartfelt thank you to the film’s supporters. The site is subscribed by upwards of 8 million followers, and both Slade and “Breaking Dawn” director Bill Condon use the platform to communicate with the Twilight public.
Slade’s comments focused on his gratitude at being part of such an enormous phenomenon, and shed light on how such unfathomable success is driven by fans. Said Slade, “When shooting The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, I always felt an awareness of how many people this film would reach and as a result, knew that this film did not just belong to myself, the producers and the studio, but more so, to all of you, the fans of The Twilight Saga.”
Slade’s list of feature-length films prior to “Eclipse” was short, and limited to psycho-horror-thriller genres. Though previous works, such as “30 Days of Night” enjoyed their own brand of success, Slade is accustomed to making niche films with followings much narrower than that of Twilight.
“At the end of the day, after all the hard work is done, all that’s left is the film itself, and your overwhelmingly positive and supportive responses have made me feel like we must have done something right,” continued Slade. “As a filmmaker, this is a rare and strange feeling of connection with an audience of which I will never forget and I thank you all for it.”
