During the long 10 years of Harry Potter movies would have us believe in miracles. But all good things must come to an end, and the story about a young wizard is not an exception - the last part of the saga died down last July. I know many miss Harry, Hermione, Ron and other characters stunning "Harry Potter," but it does not matter - we have books, movies, memories ... and backstage photos.
Filming "Harry Potter" is not particularly inferior to himself in an interesting film, because thanks to off-screen images, we are finally able to see the smallest details, which are not always visible on the big screen. For example, this stunning scenery, imitating the holy of holies of Hogwarts. Model School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was built before filming the first part of "Harry Potter" and was used until the last movie. Over its creation worked 86 artists and art director Stuart Craig, whose genius came up with the idea that the school will look exactly deservedly received the award for her BAFTA.

But other decorations that appeared in films such as shops on Diagon Alley ...
... House Weasley ...
... Dumbledore's office in the building process ...
This Pensieve with a small green screen inside, by which memories appear in the bowl.
"Harry Potter" would not be the most magical film about magic, if not millions of dollars to develop special effects and design the most incredible creatures, which are unlikely to meet in everyday life. I do not know about you, but I still horrifies the form of a mermaid from the fourth part of the saga, "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." According to the creators of this creature, "the mermaid had to look both attractive and ominous." Where the appeal ?!

Book of Horrors
Rats, cats, mermaids and other elves. Speaking of elves. Most cute elf Dobby planet is not directly involved in the shooting of films - it replaced the tennis ball, to attach to a long rod with it the actors talk during filming. Dobby then added to the frame with help of computer graphics.
Charity Babbage teacher ... or whatever's left of it ...
And here is the flying machine Weasley Ford Anglia, which is a page of a book, and then in the film because of memories of Harry Potter creator JK Rowling - just such a machine exactly the same color she took in his youth.
To qualitatively capture the scene where Harry and Ron enter the rattlesnake willow branch, had to split 14 of the Fords.
Another miracle - a self-cleaning pan. I dream about this!
Special Effects special effects, but "Harry Potter" would not be so loved us, if not for the talented actor. I do not know about you, but I always had an inexplicable sympathy for the villains, namely Severus Snape by the sweet Alan Rickman. No matter what, in the end, Snape was good, for all the movies he appeared to us two-faced asshole.
Another bastard out of the world "poterriany" - Draco Malfoy played by Tom Felton. And why all the bad boys are so attractive?
Bellatrix Lestrange by Helena Bonham Carter - another good villain movie about a boy who survived.
Or "enemy of the people" Voldemort by Rife Fiennes - a great actor, a great image, though without a nose.
Initially, the nose of the Dark Lord tried to "remove" with the help of make-up, but the result looked unconvincing. Then I had to resort to computer graphics - as a result for all the scenes Rife Fiennes starred with markers on the face, that is the reference point for applying computer image on his nose and other parts of the face.
Voldemort and the Death Eaters
In general, it is cute and druzheyubny Rife Fiennes and Michael Gambon in the image of Dumbledore.
The role of Albus Dumbledore played by two actors: Richard Harris died after the second part of Harry Potter, and was replaced by the above-mentioned Michael Gambon.
One of the interesting facts from the personal life Dumbledore intended by JK Rowling, Headmaster of Hogwarts was gay.
In one part of the "Harry Potter", namely in the "Goblet of Fire" and starred Robert Pattinson. Several shots from filming scenes involving this.
Pattinson and Katie Leung Cho Chang in the image. By the way, the role of Zhou 3000 auditioned thousands of girls - it was too all wanted to kiss Harry Potter.
Lucius Malfoy (Jason Isaacs) and Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) practiced in the art of possession of wands.

Over 10 years of filming "Harry Potter" and accumulated a lot of backstage photos showing the filming process in all its glory. The vast majority, of course, with the participation of the famous trio - Daniel Radcliffe in the image of Harry, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger and Rupert Grint in the image of the charming Ron Weasley.
Just think, these kids impersonations of his characters on the screen for 10 years - almost half of life, taking into account the fact that the average age of the main actors in "Harry Potter" to date is 21-22 years. It's funny to watch as they matured and changed over the years.

Radcliffe was not so lucky - he had only one stand-
In JK Rowling's stringent requirements, the actors involved in the shooting of seven films, certainly had to be British. Only one part of the saga, in "Prisoner of Azkaban", there are the actors of other nations - this script demanded.

And finally, a unique frame: dancing Dumbledore and Snape smiling - what could be more beautiful ?!
