About this deal

By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. HARRY POTTER, WIZARDING WORLD and related trademarks, characters, names and indicia are TM and © Warner Bros. 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. 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an enchanting interactive experience, transporting readers to the wizarding world by sharing filmmaking secrets, unpublished photography and artwork, and exclusive stories from the stars. The author of this book, Brian Sibley, is the same one who made the Lord of The Rings movie companion books.

Just enough of a teaser to make the reader wish there were a few more pages at the end, chronicling the end of the saga. Dan remarked on the journey both he and Harry endured in the ten years; Rupert took pride in playing brave Ron Weasley, the "ultimate ginger," in his words; and Emma voiced her respect for her young, annoying, brainy Muggle-born fictional counterpart she thought she had nothing in common with early in the series, but who she embraced with all her heart by the end.

Besides I love the extras such as the letter, the Quidditch flyer, the Yule Ball invitation and so on. I now have a new appreciation for the talent and vision of the filmmakers whose work is highlighted here. 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. All of the main characters have their own page, giving you information about the actor who plays them, how that actor was chosen for the role and, in cases such as Alastor Moody and Lord Voldemort, how they were transformed into their character. 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.

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. The book covers all 8 movies, so I got to see a (very) few scenes from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 before the movie comes out. This stunning package is a truly immersive reading experience with unseen imagery, concept art and exclusive insights from the cast and crew. And as an extra special bonus there are sections about the final two films, including a preview of my favorite new discovery: Fleur's double phoenix wedding dress. Series of note include "A Century of Cinema", "The Sound of Movies" and "'Ain't No Mickey Mouse Business!In truth, the two books are totally different - "Film Wizardry" attempts to provide a rush of memories and energy from a well assembled scrapbook format, where as "Page To Screen" is more like an encyclopaedia. the book being designed my MinaLima and the extra paper props like the marauders map and the yule ball program included made it a simply delightful read! 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. But suffice to say the book will appeal to those fans who are looking for collectible items AND fans who want to learn more about filmmaking, Harry Potter style. As a broadcaster, he was a contributor to and then regular presenter of the former BBC Radio 4 arts programme Kaleidoscope and the BBC World Service arts magazine, Meridian.

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!Harry Potter Wizardry is 160-page hardcover and designed like a scrapbook with little goodies — booklets, stickers, maps, even Harry's letter of acceptance to Hogwarts, etc - attached to the pages. I have also made radio programmes on a wide variety of topics from the history of magic to the crimes of Jack the Ripper! Se Harry vi sta solo simpatico, andate in libreria e sfogliatene le pagine, vi intrigherà di sicuro.

This article covers a subject that is part of the real world, and thus should not be taken as a part of the Harry Potter universe. Creo que ha sido la mejor compra de mi vida, ya que aparte de conocer cosas nuevas sobre las pelis, incluye merchandising maravilloso. Me ha encantado conocer algunos detalles y datos curiosos sobre las películas y los actores (aunque había leído la gran mayoría en twitter). S. Lewis' "The Chronicles of Narnia" and Mervyn Peake's "Titus Groan" and "Gormenghast" for which I won a coveted Sony Radio Award. Brian Sibley is the author of other bestselling behind-the-screen books, like The Lord of the Rings: The Making of the Movie Trilogy and The Land of Narnia.

It is recommended for children of all ages and that includes Harry Potter fans who have children and grandchildren of their own. With each film, there is a production diary and a design team that spills secrets of what their thought process was for that film and what they felt was their feelings while shooting that specific film. You can get through "Film Wizardry" in a few hours, but it is so much fun, it can be re-read again and again. But (you may not believe this part), Daniel’s parents hadn’t wanted him to audition, and turned down the offer. My assistant Nisha came into my office to recommend an unpublished manuscript by a first-time novelist that she had enjoyed.
