Confirmed: New Moon Filming Location

I'd heard via the grapevine of a "New Moon" filming location but I didn't want to post it until I had confirmation and now I've been given the word.

"New Moon" will start shooting at Van Tech in March. At this point it's not clear what sort of filming in going on - I'm assuming it's only principal photography but it has been confirmed. Feelers are out to find the dates but at the moment, all I know is March. If you have a tip, be sure to leave a comment or drop me a line.

@Mrs. Pattinson - I'm sure they will be (would make sense if they're staying in town) but at the moment, the only location I can confirm is this one. Still waiting for dates!

NewMoon said...

when do you think you will have the dates? are they dong rehearsals there also?

At this moment, your guess is as good as mine. That said, I will be seeing my "insider" friend on Friday and will grill for information!

Only confirmed location at the moment in Van Tech. Principal photography to start on 23rd but I don't believe anyone will be in town at that point. Still trying to confirm other locations and dates.

My understanding is that they're doing principal photography at VanTech to start - there's no indication that the cast will be in town and/or on location at that point.

Have a few other leads including:

Salvation Army building in NW (apparently the production has made initial calls of interest for possible filming)
The Vancouver Golf Course
Stanley Park (has come up a few times but no confirmation as of yet)

so they will be film in vantech ??? heh

themarina said...

At The Bridge studios? Hadn't heard about that. May be able to get some details on that.

Looks like the cast isn't shying away from the streets. Best bet to spot them is around Downtown. New pictures have them spotted at the far end of Granville (near The Rock Shop).

you see they might just use van tech for the inside shoot and other school for the outside shoot. you know in the movies it's not necesarily all done by one location. can you please clarify if van tech is confirmed for sure please ?

They were filming in Kits last week. My friend and I creeped out the set and found them filming at a house off of 4th, though they won't tell you it's New Moon of course, just some 'slasher film.' Somebody also told me that they were filming at UBC last week is well... they've definitely started filming already, that much I know! Hope this helps :-)

Don't call people liars. They just made a mistake.

But yes, it is true that the film crews that were seen at Kits Beach and 4th/Traf were NOT for New Moon.

"Apparently" there are 15 or so other productions in vancouver. But i personally think most of them are fakes to throw people off so its gonna be pretty hard to determine which ones are the right ones. Unless ypu have connections ;)Does anyone find it suspicious that all theses sets sprang up within a 3 day span of each other. Anyway thanks for the tips.

Looks like we've found another location. Video uploaded earlier today outside of a highschool. I think she says Killarney but it's hard to make out and the architecture only looks vaguely familiar:

If you guys would actually listen to the video, she clearly says it's Kits. But I think you all need to remember that New Moon is not the only film being shot in Vancouver. Just because we see a film crew we shouldn't always assume it's New Moon -- TONS of other productions are currently underway.

She does slur it pretty badly. Like I said - can't really figure out *what* she's saying and I didn't recognize the school.

I'm surprised the list of local productions is that small & we have to keep in mind that tons of TV shows film here as well.

At least we're talking about it!

I'm asking you to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE not post the filming location. It's not fair! Just keep whatever information you get to yourself. If you're going the locations in hopes of seeing/meeting the actors, you're going to have a much better catch if the crowd is smaller. If you tell everyone where the locations are then the crowds will get too big and you're just going to ruin your shot at meeting and greeting.

So let's just all keep our info to ourselves, shall we?

themarina said...

The locations aren't really "secret". If they were, we wouldn't know they were there. That said, I still don't have the exact location and even if I did, I probably wouldn't post the exact location and would only give a neighbourhood.

As for trying to get onto or near the set to meet anyone - good luck with that. Security is pretty tight around actors and as someone else mentioned, you're better off meeting them on the street or "off set".

*Someone that's actually been on the 'New Moon' set.

Look people, there's so many productions going on at the moment all you're going to do is waste your time trying to locate the set. Not to mention what exactly it is that you hope to achieve by finding the location. There's no chance you'd meet the cast and if anything you'd just annoy everyone by being there and cause a nuisance.

If you really do want to meet them that badly, why not just keep your eyes open downtown or in the many bars and clubs throughout Vancouver.

I couldn't agree with you more!
I was out at the New Moon set in PoCo on Tuesday and they kept us so far back you couldn't see a thing. I went back today and the road was entirely blocked off because yesterday there were people taking pictures (which you are 100% NOT allowed to do), and some girls even tried to sneak on the set.

Fans = Distraction/Annoyance

Just hang out downtown, if you are there frequently enough you are bound to see something.

This is a closely guarded secret, but I have reliable inside info that they have a day long (night long, actually) shoot planned for this Wednesday at Bridge Studios in Burnaby, with outdoor scenes at the #2 Road pier area in Richmond, the River Road industrial area in Delta, Dobson Drive in North Van (not sure where, but its not a long street), Indian Arm (again, not sure where exactly), and an early morning street scene in the alley behind the Carnegie Centre. That's all scheduled to go just after midnight on Wednesday, April 1. Let us know if you catch any of it.

You don't have to resort to name calling. I'm not revealing ANY information that's not already public.

If you look at the comment above, I LINK DIRECTLY to the Vancouver Sun story (if you're not local the Vancouver Sun is one of BC LARGEST mainstream newspapers). I'm pretty sure they have more readers than I do.

I don't mind the discussion and can take the name calling but I will delete comments if name calling starts being directed at other readers/commenters.

Be nice - we're all just fans.

Not sure but I saw something a few days back that he'll be present sort of as Bella's "conscience", watching out for her, in her dreams, flashbacks etc.

I'll see if I can track down the link.
