Harry Potter: Page to Screen
About this deal
Harry Potter Film Wizardry [Source] Harry Potter Page to Screen: The Complete Filmmaking Journey is a book by author and film critic, Bob McCabe. It's very photo / caption heavy at this point, with little snippets of information on materials used or hours that went into something.
It starts right at the beginning, from getting the copyright to make the films, to casting and filming right to the last day.I am a big fan of the books and then the movies, and I always wondered how they adapted those wonderful books for the big screen.
I wouldn't let my young niece and nephew look at it because a)some of the movies do have very scary elements and b)it ruins the magic! Like the fact that Mafalda Hopkirk was played by Sophie Thompson, the younger sister of Emma Thompson, and Bill Weasley was played by Brendan Gleeson's son Domhnall. I say that music fills in a lot of emotion and other nuances of the books that can't be covered by the actors or the scenery.
You could get your fill without reading a word, but coupled with insights this is an astonishingly detailed accounts of the passion, talent and effort poured into the series. Furthermore, seeing as there are some people who don't really adore the movie adaptations by Warner Bros. This book is the Bible for everything Potter and will stand as the most complete and final visual history of the Harry Potter movie story ever to be published.
Tuli hinku katsoa leffat uusiksi (aloitin jo), lisäksi lievitti tämänvuotisen kirjanaratonin jättämää haikeutta.All too often, the book felt like it was written for the people on the film, as a way to sing the praises of the very talented designers behind-the-scenes that you probably don't give a second thought about, but would if they weren't doing their jobs as well as they were. Daniel Radcliffe recounts how his personal life was shaped by playing Harry Potter; his narration sets the tone for the book and connects the many voices of the Harry Potter family. I lost count of the amount of people I told that when Hagrid waves Harry off at the end of the first movie, it's just a big man in a Hagrid costume.
