A Level Media Visit the Harry Potter Studios
Our A Level Media learners recently got to immerse themselves in a spellbinding world on a trip to the Harry Potter Studios where they had the chance to see the process of a Hollywood-style feature film production from beginning to end.
Throughout their day they were able to observe the original sets and props used in the series, get on the Hogwarts express train on Platform 9 ¾ and waver through Diagon Alley. Some learners even got the chance to ride a broomstick, like the original cast did, allowing them to explore the use of a greenscreen in film production.
Ethan, Lecturer in Media, told us: “It really benefitted the learners, affording them the opportunity for inspiration in order to prepare for their upcoming coursework.”
Overall, the learners thoroughly enjoyed their experience uncovering the behind-the-scenes secrets of the movies’ on-screen wizardry whilst bringing back lots of takeaways which they can apply to their studies.
