Post Dan Radcliffe & David Heyman consider Harry's Horcrux mission

In the last article released by Warner Bros, production designer Stuart Craig explains how he brought the cave to life in Half-Blood Prince, noting that quite a lot of it was computerised. Daniel Radcliffe and David Heyman discuss Harry and Voldemort's journey into the cave, and the beginning of Harry's inevitable path to destroy Voldemort.

Quote:
The objective to find and, hopefully, destroy the source of Voldemort's immortality and power sends Harry and Dumbledore on a perilous journey to an isolated cave set deep within a windswept cliff. Stuart Craig recalls, "When we were doing our location scouts, we found the Cliffs of Moher in the west of Ireland and immediately thought they would be spectacular for the entrance of the cave."

The filmmakers wanted the cave interior to seem vast beyond measure, "so there was no possibility of building that physically," Craig acknowledges. "Apart from the point at which Harry and Dumbledore first arrive and the island formation on which everything inside the cave happens, the set is entirely virtual, designed in the computer. We'd had our first totally virtual set on the last film, so we approached this one with a bit more confidence."

The interior of the cave appears to be made up of geometric crystal formations, so Craig and his team began by researching various rock formations. They also visited a quartz crystal cave and a salt crystal cave to study the properties of crystal surfaces. "Reproducing salt crystals requires some major R&D and a lot of experimenting with synthetic resins," the designer remarks. "The challenge was to create something that was magical but credible at the same. It was also a challenge for Tim Burke and our visual effects team and also for (director of photography) Bruno Delbonnel. How do you light this glowing crystal island in the middle of a huge black void? Everybody was part of the process; it was an exciting collaboration."

Within the recesses of the cave, Harry and Dumbledore face terrible dangers as, for the first time, Harry is forced by Dumbledore to take control. Radcliffe states, "When Dumbledore takes Harry on this mission, it is sort of a rite of passage. He is initiating Harry into what he is ultimately going to have to do. This is the beginning of the story of defeating Voldemort, and Harry would never shirk that responsibility."

And, whether or not they succeed, new and even more terrible threats await them at Hogwarts.

Heyman reflects, "There is a line in the film where Dumbledore says, 'Once again, I must ask too much of you, Harry.' Does he feel guilt? I don't know if he feels guilt, but he knows that Harry is growing up, and I think this is all part of the education of Harry Potter. Dumbledore knows that ultimately Harry is going to be the one who has to face Voldemort, and in introducing him to Slughorn and exposing him to some of Voldemort's history and taking him on the journey that he does, he is preparing Harry for the final battle that lies ahead."
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released July 15, 2009; tickets are on sale now!

I think Dumbledore is just acknowledging there how everything has been forced onto Harry's shoulders, in that there's little choice. He knows, whatever happens, Harry isn't the sort of person to walk away from the heavy responsibility that he's been given. But at the same time he realises just how much that could weigh on him.

Wow...I really enjoyed all those interviews...best by far. Shocks me that most of the cave is CGI and computerised.

It will be interesting to see if the cave matches what people conjured up in their minds as they read the book.

On another note, not only does Dumbledore know that Harry himself will face Voldemort, but that he (Dumbledore) will likely die soon and perhaps not be there for Harry to see him through this.

I'm going to miss reading these interviews. But this whole cave scene, that's going to be amazing, and probably one of my favourites. All we've gotten so far is the actual fight against the inferi to get out, but the part where Harry has to force Dumbledore to drink the potion is going to be so... intense. I can't wait!

I agree with that one.
I just hope it doesnt turn out to be unintentionally funny. In lots of movies, the scary parts end up being funny, allthough they aren't intended to. I think, more that HBP, DH risks this.

The cave scene is looking to be a great scene!
Didn't I read somewhere that the Inferi scenes alone are like 7 minutes long? That means the whole cave scene must be 10+ minutes!! That's exciting!
