David Heyman (Producer)
What are some of your favorite moments from filming Harry Potter?
There are so many moments. For me, I suppose the first day of shooting, which was actually the last scene of the first film - Hogwarts Express either arriving, or leaving. I'd worked really hard to make it happen, and then here we were.
And then the last day, which was, you know, very emotional. It was a green screen shot from [Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I] when Dan, Rupert and Emma dived into the fires for the first film. Kind of a boring shot, not too hard emotionally. And then we showed the trailer and then we showed a film, made up of what's called golden boards. Every day, we had someone hold the clapper board, "Day one" of whatever it was up to 264, and the first assistant director strung all those together. We watched that and ended with – somebody had gone through and filmed everybody working on the film sort of waving good-bye and ending with David Yates getting into a car. Not a dry eye in the house.
Do you have any souvenirs from the set?
I've got some wands, I've got time-turners, I've got every one of the Horcruxes.
