Hello Harry Potter fans!
Here comes my special effects post! Some of the things they do with it are pretty advanced, so I suggest doing a web search for anything you don’t understand. Here are some bits of information I’ve gathered:
They use special programs on computers especially designed for editing films.
There are faster compter processors that make some effects possible that couldn’t be attempted in the first or second Harry Potter movies.
Richardson-the special effects artist for the Harry Potter films- says, “We’ve improved all of our mechanics, electronics, and all of our rigs that we build are now operated by computers. A lot of what we do is fairly complex hydraulic rigs. But we have the abbility now to operate and control those computers which gives us a much better interface with the Visual Effects guys and the CG work they’re doing so than we can ensure that the real world marries up pretty seamlessly with the computer world.”
In many cases, such as flying sequences, the Visual Effects artists will shoot in front of a blue or green screen. The blue and green screens make it possible to change the type of background, as well as make it move by playing a computer-animated video.
– Richardson said that they had to keep redesigning the broomstick flying rigs, because the kids kept growing.
Well, that’s the end of my special effects post! Thanks for visiting this website Harry Potter fans!
