Thanks to TLC reader Emma, we know that the city of Hunsbury, England will feature in overhead shots for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Emma pointed us to this article which says:

"The Warner Brothers team went up in a helicopter to film aerial footage of the residential area last Thursday.As reported by this newspaper they had posted letters to residents asking them to leave lights on and curtains open why the filming took place.It was on Tuesday night that the production company’s location department revealed what the filming was for. The news has delighted residents and the non-magical muggle folk who are now hoping to catch a glimpse of the Northampton skyline when the film is released.

The Mayor of Northampton, Cllr Michael Hill, who lives in East Hunsbury, received the letter to keep his lights on.He said: “To be honest, I completely forgot! I think it would be nice if Northampton is given credit for taking part, but it will mean very little if we are just part of an anonymous backdrop.“I think a few people will go along and try and see their houses.”

Man, curtains open and lights on, that is kind of sketchy at night. People can see into your house. I guess it makes a nice effect though. I wonder how many people actually participated and followed the WB’s instructions.

The mayor completely forgot? Good grief, if ever I was asked to do something for a HP movie, I’d be just so excited about it that I would be squeeing the whole time until filming … Anyhows, it’s cool to be getting more filming news about the new movie again :)

They filmed for the Seven Potters scene, I think. The one where they’re flying??
