    Conjuring New Moon

    Depicting the snarl of a werewolf, the sparkling skin of a vampire, or a handsome apparition were all in a day's work for Matt Jacobs and Eric Pascarelli, visual effects supervisors who worked on The Twilight Saga: New Moon. These masters of technology were charged with bringing the latest movie installment of Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novel to the big screen. Jacobs and his team at Tippett Studio created New Moon's realistic-looking (albeit horse-sized) wolves with computer-generated imagery (CGI). The task of creating most of the other visual effects in the film, including the diamond-like shimmering of vampire skin coming into contact with sunlight, fell to Pascarelli and his team at Prime Focus VFX. With behind-the-scenes stories and film clips demonstrating the process, Jacobs and Pascarelli will illustrate how creativity and science combined to convey emotion, create drama, and bring New Moon to life.
