On 10th December 2013 a group of Year 10, 11 and A Level Media students visited the Warner Bros Studio Tour: The making of Harry Potter. The purpose of the trip was for students to learn about how film sets are used and they were also given a lesson on camera angles.
‘The Harry Potter museum is a fantastic and interesting place, also mentioning how enormous it is! As we walked in, there was a display of Harry Potter’s bedroom from the Philosophers Stone and the other on going books and films. There was a famous quote from J. K Rowling which said, ‘No story lives unless someone wants to listen.’
When the tour began, our tour guide spoke about how the fan base has grown and how many film covers there are across the globe in many different languages. Next, we entered a screening showing footage of Harry Potter behind the scenes, getting an exclusive look at the journey of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. When the screening finished, the screen rose upwards, revealing the doors of The Great Hall. We entered the hall and it was brilliant. It had the four different clubs Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. On the other side of the hall there was a row of familiar faces such as Hagrid, Dumbledore and Snape. The best part for me was the Concept Art. I loved this because of the amount of detail and time put into the pieces of art, I was just speechless. Overall I really enjoyed this trip. From the miniature Hogwarts model, the props, costumes and masks to all the amazing sets, I enjoyed every moment.’ Liam (11 Indigo)
‘The best part of the trip was walking through the big double doors of The Great Hall because it made you feel like you were a part of the film. Also, we got to try the butter beer that they drink in the film. I would recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys Harry Potter films and would like to see what happens behind the scenes.’ Morgan (10 Indigo)
