Rising Sun, the special effects company partly behind the magic on ‘Harry Potter’ film franchise, has released a short making-of video with some of the more interesting special effects moments. Look at the visual designs used in ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’. Computer graphics implemented to digitally alter scenes involving Harry and Dumbledore’s visit to Slughorn’s home and the Weasley twins’ joke shop. Watch Tom Felton (Draco) go from clean to bloodied when struck by the Sectumsempra curse, and then as he and Alan Rickman (Snape) go from blue screen to dark of night as they leave Hogwarts.
This is really amazing – to see how much work they put into post-production and how it works. Did you think about special-effects and imagine that it’s like this while watching the movie?
