SET VISIT: ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I’

Last March, we had the rare opportunity to travel to London, England and visit the set while they were shooting the two films simultaneously. Not only did we have the opportunity to watch them filming, and take a tour of the massive and impressive Leavesden Studios, but we also had a chance to speak with several members of the cast and crew including director David Yates and actors Mark Williams, Evanna Lynch, James and Oliver Phelps, Warwick Davis, Rupert Grint and of course ... Harry himself, Daniel Radcliffe. While we talked to the actors and the director about both movies and watched them filming parts of the second film, we will only be discussing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I in this article. And we will have more from our visit pertaining to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II closer to its release next summer.

We began our visit by arriving at the massive Leavesden Studios in West Hertfordshire, England, which is approximately 18 miles northwest of central London. Not only was the studio home to such fan-favorite films as Martin Campbell's Goldeneye with Pierce Brosnan, George Lucas's Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, but it has been the home to every Harry Potter film since the series began production over a decade ago. In fact, many of the department heads on the final two movies began as production assistants or college interns on the first few films. Several crew people told us that since they began working on this series right after college, that working on a Harry Potter film is the only real job that they've ever had. Which is pretty amazing when you think about it. The crew affectionately refers to anyone who has worked on all eight films as "Lifers." Upon arrival you realize what a massive and "well-oiled-machine" the Harry Potter production team is, and as a result of how long they have been doing this for, it feels more like a long running television series then a film set.
