The director noted that, "The square becomes a flood of red, that's how conscious we were of every visual aspect. The use of film, rather than digital, cameras added to the "old-fashioned" nature of the production. When Bella is with Jacob, the Steadicam provided a fluid and organic style; and when she is with her schoolmates, a slangy visual language was reflected by a handheld.
Once the film went into production, the decision to shoot in Vancouver, rather than in Portland , came after debate on how to match the locations that were introduced in the first film. For the exterior of Forks High School, crew members were able to find a parking lot, but the school's steps needed to be filmed with a greenscreen backing to match those that were originally presented in Twilight.
The Cullen house was one of the major "match" assignments, mainly because of the Portland area location's unique design. One location was positively compared to the one in Portland, and therefore Weitz and the production team filmed portions of the film there. After scouting Vancouver for a place to film scenes that involved the Swan house, the decision was made to recreate the house on an empty lot with a tree line and approaching road.
When recreating the house, the production team referenced the first film on high-definition Blu-ray Disc. As a director, Weitz had the pleasure of introducing and filming on new locations and sets. Of particular interest was the Quileute reservation and Jacob's house. The production designer was faced with a "real world" versus "book world" challenge when the barn they located, described in the book as a red barn, was green. After scouting more than twelve possible locations to film scenes that would take place in Volterra , Italy, the scouting team selected the town of Montepulciano , which they believe was the best representation of Meyer's description in the book.
The idea was to give everyone a deeper feeling of the creature that they were creating. MacLeod explained that creating the shape-shifting werewolves was not an easy task. Since the book described the wolves as being as big as horses, full-scale aluminum and board wolf cutouts were used as a visual reference for both actors and crew members.
A raw 3D model of Jacob's wolf was the basis for creating the others.
From there, the initial fur layout went to painters who were responsible for its color and groom. They refined this look before passing it off to the lighting and technical directors. One challenge for the production team was how to convey Bella's depression once Edward departs. In the novel, these pages were filled with the names of the passing months, and in the movie, would be represented as a visual effects shot with a camera circling around Kristen Stewart. It required matching two camera shots: one that shot the actress in a chair, and the other shooting the view outside the window as seen from the house built on location.
The score for New Moon was composed by Alexandre Desplat  while the rest of the soundtrack was chosen by music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas , who also produced the Twilight soundtrack.

Robert Ignizio of the Cleveland Scene described the film as an "entertaining fantasy", and noted that it "has a stronger visual look [than Twilight ] and does a better job with its action scenes while still keeping the focus on the central love triangle.
Time Out New York gave the film 4 stars out of 5, calling it "acceptable escapism for those old enough to see it yet still young enough to shriek at undead dreamboats.
