About this deal

Not very much new information but it's very interesting and always nice to reread and refresh the mind about the Harry Potter movies.

I live in London with my life partner, a professional magician, in a house overcrowded with so many books, DVDs and CDs (not to mention all those old videos and gramophone records! Harry Potter Film Wizardry is a book by Brian Sibley that relays a comprehensive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Harry Potter film series.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. The graphic artists who designed the films and their contents also designed this book, and they did a fabulous job, with both endeavors. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

You can read about all the teachers Harry had, the different villains from each movies, Ministry of Magic or all the strange inventions created by Ron's twin brothers. Most magical of all are the various movie prop replicas which enable you to grasp and hold some of the magical items from the world of Harry Potter. Well, this book has an great insight on the special effects of the Harry Potter movies, explanations on how each movie was filmed and how the ideas came to the muggles who created the film series.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an enchanting interactive experience, transporting readers to the Wizarding World by sharing filmmaking secrets , unpublished photography and artwork , and exclusive stories from the stars , including: Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Rupert Grint (Ron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. Full of removable facsimile reproductions of props and paper ephemera from the movies, this collectible volume offers a privileged look at the Harry Potter films and the talented group of Muggles that has made true movie magic. 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.

Because of all these props, this book can serve as a toy too, one that will enhance imaginative “Harry Potter” play. It is recommended for children of all ages and that includes Harry Potter fans who have children and grandchildren of their own. There are look-backs by the principal actors that reveal surprising details that you will not find elsewhere.

The replicas are all brilliant, many of which I’m too scared to get out and look at properly (like the Marauders Map). Sibley is no stranger to compiling materials from movies to create a profound source of information on these epic movie series.

Series of note include "A Century of Cinema", "The Sound of Movies" and "'Ain't No Mickey Mouse Business! The book begins with a foreward from Dan, Rupert, and Emma, who gush about how much of an impact the series made in their lives. With the end of the Harry Potter film franchise nearing, it seemed the right time to go back and savour the highlights of the ten-year long series. The only difference, other than the colour, it that instead of taking up the entire cover Harry has his own circle at the top that is entwined in the same background pattern.

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. It is highly enjoyable and it points out small details that are in the movies that you never noticed before.
