Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Castle

Hogwarts Castle houses the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  This incredible, hand sculpted 1:24 scale model was built for the first film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone™.  It took 86 artists and crew members to construct the model, which sits at nearly 50 feet in diameter, has over 2,500 fibre optic lights that simulate lanterns and torches and even gave the illusion of students passing through hallways in the films.  I had a blast documenting some of the set and props of the Harry Potter movie series. Location: Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, England.  What a cool experience!  6.26.13
