About this deal

There is also exclusive details about what the design, production and directing teams worked on how and why they decided to split Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows into two films and specific scenes such as the Wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour, the 1998 Break-in of Gringotts Wizarding Bank, the Ministry of Magic, and the Room of Requirement. Me ha encantado conocer algunos detalles y datos curiosos sobre las películas y los actores (aunque había leído la gran mayoría en twitter). There were some pages that were just about one actor/actress and how they felt playing the role and some pages had bits that were about an actor/actress looking back at a funny/embarrassing/ memorable moment.

It is loaded with never-before-seen concept art and photos from Dumbledore's embroidered robes to the sets of Diagon Alley. He also presented the Radio 4 film programme, Talking Pictures and chaired the radio panel games Break A Leg and Screen Test, and presented several seasons of the BBC television programme, First Light. Or to be more precise, for this particular sketch of Hogwarts and its surrounding grounds, penned in a matter of minutes by J. He's right, of course, and while the people who made the movies were there for births, marriages, divorces and even deaths, fans have been along for the ride, hoping for a chance to sit in the front seat. I read and I read and I read, and by the time I lay the book down and looked at my watch, it was 4:00 a.An absolute must-have for all Potter fans, this Brian Sibley book is all about the magic of Harry Potter films. K Rowling's celebrated novels to the silver screen, Harry Potter: Film Wizardry delivers an enchanting interactive experience, transporting readers to the Wizarding World by sharing filmmaking secrets , unpublished photography and artwork , and exclusive stories from the stars , including: Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and Alan Rickman (Severus Snape), as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes stories from the producer on all eight films, David Heyman, director David Yates, and production designer Stuart Craig. Part of it's charm is that it looks like someone has created a personal scrap book of mementos and collectables from the Harry Potter movies. Because of all these loose parts and some pages easy to tear/ruin, I very much doubt that this book will be available for borrowing at very many, if any, libraries.

Because of all these props, this book can serve as a toy too, one that will enhance imaginative “Harry Potter” play.

There are plenty of photos shot behind the scenes showing the sets, the miniatures and models, actors and there are even some pieces of artwork and sketches. There are look-backs by the principal actors that reveal surprising details that you will not find elsewhere. S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia and Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast for Radio 4, for which he received a Sony Radio Award in 1985. All of the special touches make it feel like you have a true treasure pulled right out of the Gringott's bank vault. Not very much new information but it's very interesting and always nice to reread and refresh the mind about the Harry Potter movies.

Während seine Entscheidung damals in Frage gestellt worden war, zeigte sich im Nachhinein, wie klug sie gewesen war. Unglaublicherweise hatte Stuart Craig die weise Vorraussicht besessen, einen beträchtlichen Teil seines Budgets in große Steinplatten für die Große Halle zu investieren, sodass ihr Boden mit echtem Stein aus York ausgelegt werden konnte. In brilliant colour images there are costume sketches and designs, story board sequences, memorable scenes created by the concept artists and maps and diagrams illustrating the complex rooms and corridors of Hogwarts School and the mysterious nooks and crannies of Diagon Alley. Now, keep in mind that Heyman went after the film rights before the first book was even published, and the publisher itself (Bloomsbury in London), by no means predicted the book to be a bestseller!It's easy to get lost in just looking at all the tiny, (almost unseen), but beautifully rendered artistic elements throughtout the book. Bloomsbury, Scholastic, or any of the individuals or companies associated with producing and publishing Harry Potter books and films.

My specialist interests have always been film (in particular animation) and children's literature and I have broadcast numerous radio and TV programmes and written several books about both these topics. There are many mini interviews with cast members, directors, and others involved in the making of the films, and most of them had very interesting things to say. It then lead into the first of many producer's notes scattered throughout the book, where David Heyman, the man who read the first Harry Potter book, fell in love, and immediately insisted on making the films, explained how he began to piece the movies together well over ten years ago.Also included are specific scenes and how the production team put the magic together, examples being the three tasks of the Triwizard Tournament, the Little Hangleton graveyard, and even how they put together the challenges of Rubeus Hagrid the Part-giant, and the Black family tree tapestry, the Boggart, Hogsmeade, and much more. It includes exclusive and removable photographs, pull-outs, maps, pamphlets and other artefacts from the world of the films. New York Times bestselling Harry Potter Film Wizardry was the first book to delve into the fascinating and intriguing world of an enormously successful film franchise. New characters introduced into each film such as Alastor "Mad Eye" Moody, Dolores Umbridge, Remus Lupin, Gilderoy Lockhart and even the Goblins.
