Post Tom Felton talks current outdoors Hogwarts Deathly Hallows filming

Actor Tom Felton, while promoting the DVD and Blu-ray release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, spoke to Female First about the movie, playing Draco Malfoy, his music, and the current production of Deathly Hallows. Tom mentioned that the cast and crew at Leavesden Studios are currently shooting outdoors scenes for Hogwarts castle, which is in a state of destruction and disarray.

So, you know when you’re making the film, obviously, we see it and you’re in these amazing settings and there’s all these places, how do you create that, how easy is it like, you know filming with green screens.
Well, it’s a mixture. If you came down to the set you may not, it’s pretty funny. Whatever is in front of the camera is obviously decently lit, heated and looks amazing, the props etc, whilst anything behind the camera is basically err, up to our own devices, lots of cables running about and lots of building materials and the rest of it.

For example we’ve been shooting outdoors at the moment and they build, basically this decrepit castle that’s all been smashed up and it’s quite incredible… so a lot of credit goes to Stuart Tozer who’s the set designer, it’s never an easy task.

They go such lengths of detail too, one example from an earlier film is when the students get books to read in the class room, and to be honest, there was no need for that book to have anything written in it, but it’s actually 122 pages of withering text that some guy’s sat down and written just to help the other kids and stuff like that, so it’s incredible the amount of detail that they go to!
The Half-Blood Prince can be ordered via the following links:

Standard DVD: (one-disc); (two-disc);

That's AMAZING!!! So they built another hogwarts for the battle?! Wow.

The part about the book was hilarious. I can't believe someone wrote a book that will never be seen on screen. Love it! I wonder what he wrote about?

The amount of detail they go into for these films is truly brilliant. But I love how the HP films have some of the biggest movie mistakes. Love it!

Yes, it's amazing what they do to make the whole set so realistic. They're the best.

that is interesting....reminds me of the 12 hours of appendices for LOTR....all the behind the scenes setwork makes you really appreciate those extra employees doing the detail oriented work.
