Upon hearing this news a day after a new iPhone announcement I just couldn’t believe it. My best friend showed me a twitter feed and it read “Steve Jobs RIP.” Not the words I was expecting to see across an iPhone. My heart dropped. As many people know, I am a huge Apple fan. I have Macs, iPods,…
Today in my film class, we had two guest speakers that are film composers. They were talking about really great film scores and one said: “For example the soundtrack for the last Harry Potter movie. You walk out of that movie feeling as though you could jump on a dragon and fly away because that music score was done so well.”
Everyone knows I’m obsessed with Harry Potter so a few people turned to look at my reaction when he said that. It was amazing.
Alright guys, I decided to do the parallel of the deathly hallows to Voldemort (the one who died for power), Snape (the one who died for love), and Harry (the one who greeted death like an old friend) for my television production class.
For the project, we have to choose ten still frames (pictures) to tell a story and we can have it set to music. The toughest part of this project is that there is no editing involved, it will be shot live by a ‘crew.’
For the music, I was thinking of blending parts of it with Hermione’s voice when she tells parts of the story of the Tale of the Three Brothers to the song the Resurrection Stone or Lily’s Theme.
Any thoughts of what images I should use, or any other songs I should use, etc. Is this a terrible idea overall? I am open to ideas, so please let me know! It would be appreciated!
So I got my Pottermore e-mail this morning, but I didn’t have much time to get on it because I’m currently rushing to join a sorority. So alll day I couldn’t wait to get home to play it. I even joked that I wasn’t going back so that I could play Pottermore.
So I got home tonight and started playing. I was unexpectedly sorted into Gryffindor! Craziness. I was hoping for Ravenclaw but Gryffindor was my second choice sooo.
Also for rush, I have a first choice and a second choice, and I find out tomorrow which one I get. Gryffindor was my second choice, so that might mean I will also get my second choice tomorrow!
Harry Potter SurveyI am wide awake and bored….
How old were you when you read your first HP book?
Ten I think
How old were you when you saw your first HP movie?
How did you hear about HP?
This kid in my fourth grade class was obsessed with Harry Potter and ironically enough I used to make fun of him for it. On Valentine’s Day he handed out Harry Potter cards. What a cool kid.
I actually saw the first movie before I read any of the books. My dad is in the military so I have had to move around a lot. One summer we were moving from Montana to New York, and we had a portable TV in our van. Before we left, my mom looked for the longest movie she could find (Sorcerer’s Stone) and bought it for the trip. My older brother and I watched it. When it was over my brother said it was really lame. Out of fear, I agreed. But on the inside I was in love. I bought books 1-4 after that.
What was your favorite book?
It will always be Prisoner of Azkaban
What was your favorite movie?
Prisoner of Azkaban and Deathly Hallows part 1. I love part two as well but it’s too emotional for me to watch often. I get too sad. Who is your favorite HP character?

My brother finished the seventh book for the first time and my whole family wanted to go and see part two (my third time seeing it). I of course, with the rest of my family, cried. I even saw my dad wipe his eyes a few times…
I now hope for my Pottermore letter even more now just to help me get along :P
