Remembering Hogwarts

made a scene from Prisoner of Azkaban

Can you believe it?
This third scene in my Remembering Hogwarts Series is really more than one!

(Don’t you just love trick endings?)

I spent A LOT of time on set and prop design for this vid, building an entire car of the Hogwarts Express, the end of Platform 9 3/4 AND an unattended snack trolly. The “location” offered tons of opportunity to play up details and background animation. I’m pretty proud of the  scenery as it moves with the train out of London, through city and forest, towards Hogwarts Castle. I used receipt paper for the effect… Talk about an obsolete item- I had to buy a 12 pack to get the 3-feet of slim, rolled paper I needed for this project… And that was a success only had after traveling to four different stores.

At least they have teacher discounts at Office Max.

Too bad the same kind of discounts aren’t offered on Harry Potter action figures…

I might have purchased Draco on Amazon just for this scene.

Remembering Hogwarts

made a scene from Chamber of Secrets

Expect Remembering Hogwarts to get better and better – I guarantee it to be filled with surprises with each coming scene (in which I set out to do one for each epic Harry Potter tale with epic Harry Potter music).

The set design alone sets this second scene apart from the first . I recreated Moaning Myrtle’s deserted toilet chamber completely with cardboard, a hot glue gun ❤ , and elmer’s paint. Myrtle herself is simply tracing paper.

Keep your brain’s guessing for Prisoner of Azkaban!

Dementor! Dementor!
