Video - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 – Behind the Scenes Filming
The latest and last incarnation of the film franchise will be out soon and we already know we will see the fate of our dear friend Harry Potter at the hands of Lord Voldemort.
In the video below you will see some of the most fascinating behind the scenes footage ever released of the actual making of a Harry Potter movie.
They are a series of backstage, behind the scenes shots taken during the actual filming of “Deathly Hallows: Part 2” and they give an amazing insight as to what goes on behind the camera while actually making a movie.
It proves that what you see on the movie screen has nothing to do with what is actually happening in the studio.
And you get sense of the sheer size, scale, and cost - just to get 30 seconds of usable footage. Amazing stuff.
You get to see the wind machines, the director, the extras, the green screens, the fire pods, the cameras, the tricks, the rigs, the gaffs, the cables, and the drama.
We get to see director David Yates in full production mode and you can tell how involved he is in every scene.

Anybody who has ever been involved with a movie shoot will enjoy watching the camera jibs pulling a HD steadicam across a motion controlled set of gadgets.
All the green backdrops you see will later be turned into what we know as Hogwarts during post production, and all the shots are shot without music playback and can seem quite tedious at times.
That’s how you make a move kids!
Can you imagine the thousands of hours in post-production adding in all the sound, music, dialog, special effects, etc?
This is why actors make the big money and directors should make more.
