Leaky and PotterCast Present: "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" Fan Commentary

Posted by: Edward

It's time once again to get out your DVD players and join the PotterCasters as they provide you a fan DVD commentary, this time for the third film, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.  Slide in your Prisoner of Azkaban DVD and enjoy as Melissa, Sue, John and Frak provide you with commentary and insights about the third film.  The commentary track is now available on our iTunes feed or as a direct download via this link.  We are also working on a PAL compatible version, which will be available soon.

You can download our other commentaries right here!

Here is a little ‘How-To’ on syncing this audio with the DVD film:

Follow these instructions to set up this podcast to play alongside your “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” DVD (which you will need to own):
1. Set up your DVD in your TV/computer/console/other player, and start to play the full-length feature film.
2. When the screen goes from BLUE to BLACK, hit PAUSE.
3. Start this audio track.
4. John will count down (“Three…two…one…click”): UNPAUSE your DVD when he says “click.”
5. Enjoy!
As these are separate video/audio tracks playing simultaneously, pausing will pose a problem. If you pause the video first, and the audio second, unpause in the same order and you'll get close to the same synch.

Once again, you can download the audio track using direct download, and feel free to participate in PotterCast discussion right here on our Leaky Lounge.

Ravenclaw from Glenn

I loved this commentary . It was great to have Frak along this time. Listening all the way through the credits Melissa asked what BSC stands for, it’s British Society of Cinematographers. The US version is ASC and a person has to be invited to join – and only the best get to be members.

(Also, to answer another commentary question: I think it would be werepoop)

I love the idea of doing another set of commentaries with guest commentators. Maybe have a fan contest to be a guest along with your choices. Make it a party!

IMO it would be humanpoop (since it’s not really part of his body, right?), but disguised as dogpoop as long as he is transformed.

Fun commentary guys!

But Frak, one note:

Ominousing is not a word. Ominous is and Menacing are both words, but Ominousling is not.

And Act 3 doesn’t begin until Sirius is about to recieve the kiss in the tower. That is the lowest moment, and Harry and Hermione enter act 3 together, travelling through time to save Sirius and Buckbeak.

The business in the Shrieking Shack is the deep end of Act 2.

LOVED the commentary guys! Listening to you is a lot of fun!

Sue, I agree with you about the scene where Harry flies Buckbeak for the first time. It is one of my favorites in all the HP films. Harry is so happy at that moment. I love watching it.
