14 Jun Orlando Crew Tours with the Stars of Harry Potter
Orlando DP/Partner Dan Beckmann led the GTT team as they helped give fans world-wide, a glimpse of the film stars as they embarked on a VIP tour of the soon-to-open Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
Beckmann got the morning off to a rousing start, by helping Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) announce (live on The Today Show) classroom winners that will be invited to the Grand Opening of the Wizarding World on 18 June.
After the Today Show, Emma Watson, and several other Potter stars, (Robbie Coltrane, James and Oliver Phelps and Matthew Lewis) toured Hogsmeade Village: sampling Butterbeer and Pumpkin Juice, various jokes from Zonko’s Joke Shop, and Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans at HoneyDukes.
Go To Team’s Orlando-based Cameraman Dan Lowrey, helped Beckmann’s team capture b-roll and interviews of the Universal Executives taking the stars along the V.I.P Tour.
Emma Watson even received her very own wand inside Ollivanders Wand Shop! And there was entertainment throughout the village, as all the stars got to experience the embodiment of the stories and phenomenon they’ve helped create.
Their day culminated with a ride on the state-of-the-art, Harry Potter and The Forbidden Journey!
