Just a few years ago, the Harry Potter book series was complete and soon followed the film series that was adapted from it.
To commemorate the magical moments of those books and films, I started making an animated tribute series, Remembering Hogwarts. In a very short amount of time I animated scenes from the first three Harry Potter tales, but then took a very long time to create a scene from the fourth, The Goblet of Fire.
Though I had a strong vision of what I wanted to do (I made the background in February of 2012), the thought of how much time it would take to build the additional scenery and props (trees, tents, fires) and
make hire all the extras (Death Eaters and Victims) was daunting – and on top of it I had to shoot and edit?? Needless to say, I kept this project in the background (on my dresser) for quite a while.
But I finally did it… After three straight days of set design and hiring the talent (crafting), seven-hours of shooting and two of editing, I finally did it…
