Over the years we've brought you news from some of the companies who work on the Harry Potter films, notably the companies who create special effects seen in the movies. One such company, Rising Sun has provided another look at the work they've done for the movies, this time for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. You can see the meticulous and time consuming work done in creating things such as Dumbledore's wounded hand, and the scene at Slughorn's home at the beginning of movie at this link, or here, then where it says 'launch VFX breakdowns.' or here now in our galleries. Enjoy!

Thanks Matt, Rising Sun and SS!

How very cool. It gives me more respect for the actors who work in front of simple blue screens yet make you feel they are really there.

So cool! I also love behind-the-scenes stuff… I have always loved that kind of stuff more than the actual movies sometimes. It just shows how much work they put into these wonderful films. :)
