Curiosities of the films!


Hogwarts is the best school of witchcraft and sorcery of the wizarding world.
This directed by the honorable director of Albus Dumbledore.
There are 4 houses (I’m in gryffindor xd 😛  ) :

Founded by Godric Gryffindor Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, founded by Helga Hufflepuff, Slytherin founded by Salazar Slytherin and Rowena Ravenclaw Ravenclaw founded.
The Professor of the houses are: Minerva Mc Gonagall, Pomona Sprout Filius Flitwick and Severus Snape. In Hogwarts there are many secret passages, rooms and even mazes! 🙂 Each house has a common room guarded by a box that has a password so you can enter, and only those of your home and know what it is. Of course you can always brew with the Polyjuice Potion as did Harry and his friends! :mrgreen: XD



Producer: David Heyman
He has made Harry Potter so exciting as it is! We owe everything to him! David Heyman was the one that made Daniel Radcliffe auditioned HP since his father conozia Alan Radcliffe.
Thanks for making the HP films are what they are! Xd

Production designer: Stuart Craig.
Stuart Craig has always said that at the very beginning when you just knew things about Harry Potter grabbed a pen and paper and began to try to draw a map of Hogwarts that everything went sketch. At that moment he knew that working for the Harry Potter would be a unique experience, unbelievable and very exciting (of course!).


Special effects (some info): 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 has three nominations for this weekend’s Oscar Awardsceremony, all in the technical departments. Today a new interview came out with Special Effects Supervisor Tim Burke, who is one of those nominees, on his career with the Harry Potter franchise.

Tim has been the Visual Effects Supervisor at Mill Films for all of the Harry Potter films since Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, receiving an Oscar nomination for Prisoner of AzkabanDeathly Hallows – Part 1 and now Deathly Hallows – Part 2. Even though he has not captured the coveted Oscar award for Harry Potter – YET! – he has received an Oscar for his work on the film Gladiators back in 2000.

During the interview with Studio Daily, he spoke of using miniatures for Hogwarts in the final film. Tim stated:

“We didn’t use any miniatures for Hogwarts. It was the first time we did away with the 24th-scale model. We used a third-scale viaduct for the sequence with the giants. We scaled the architecture they were running on to make the actors look taller. But we didn’t use miniatures to recreate Hogwarts.”

When asked which scene was his favorite to produce, he stated:

“Funnily enough, I think the sequence of the [Hogwarts] shield forming and the destruction of the shield. Even though they weren’t perhaps the most complicated, they were some of the most beautiful. As Voldemort arrived with his army on the hillside, the teachers went into the areas of the courtyard and created a magical shield that enveloped and protected the school. We art-directed the shots at Double Negative and they are elegant.


It took a long time to create the magical shield. Then Voldemort bombarded the school and destroyed the shield. We wanted to give that an epic scale. We referenced the Hindenburg airship disaster, when it went up in flames, to get the scale of the flames and burning materials. That was the reference for pieces of cloth-like fire that dropped down onto the school. It was magical – not in a Harry Potter sense. It was beautiful and shocking at the same time. Those shots were completely CG and had a big design aspect, which is rewarding.”

We believe Tim Burke’s team will take home the first Oscar for the Potter franchise, what are your thoughts on their chances? Let us know in the comments below.
