The End!

It's a bitersweet moment.  I just finished the final part of the 7th movie, and that means that our 6-year adventure of making Harry Potter movies is now complete.  I have grown up both as a person and as a moviemaker since we first started working on Curse of the Mad Librarian back in 2006, and that has been documented quite well in these films.  A BIG thank you to everyone who has been involved in the filmmaking process of these movies. It means a lot to me. And thank you to all those who have been watching as well. :D  

I am now turning my attention to new projects, but I will make sure to release a blooper reel and some behind-the-scenes features of the 7th movie soon.

This is it... We filmed the last scene in the movie today.  Only two other scenes left to shoot.

I am now releasing the movie in Parts because I have not finished filming the last few scenes involving Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and a certian Librarian.  When I get back from camp I will finally be able to finish this movie!  Look for new Parts being released soon.  Last week I also filmed the last Snape scene.... (Lauren will kill me for putting this picture up, this was an outtake.)

Lots of filming this week.  We've filmed close to half of the movie.  For the first time in years we had all of Dumbledore's army in the same room; Harry, Ron, Hermione, Neville, and Luna. 

Writing and Planning

I am writing new scenes for later in the movie, and the major plot is all layed out.  Filming dates are being planned for a Harry/Ginny scene and two Harry/Ron/Hermione scenes.  Lots of adventure is coming up!
