Behind the Scenes: Johnny while filming the Grindelwald’s Escape.
(November 16), we celebrated the first anniversary of the release of “Fantastic
Beasts and the Crimes of Grindelwald”, so let’s keep talking about one of the breathtaking scenes: “The
Grindelwald’s Escape and the Thestral Chase” !
These scenes are considered one of the most
challenging sequences on “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” because, as the SFX Supervisor, Christian Manz, says, the sequence happens at night
between lighting, rain, wind and a lot of action between the actors and those who help to move the actors on the brooms.
It took 5 months for the sequences to be finished, since the development of
ideas, storyboard and later, weeks of filming in a Chroma key green studio with the
visit of J.K. Rowling, David Yates and the producers.
Johnny did all of his scenes fantastically, although being pelted by water and wind, while attached to
suspended wires to film his scenes as well protect him from falling.
Tomorrow, is the third anniversary of the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, so let’s keep talking about Grindelwald too.
Ps. The scenes
above were taken from my Blu-ray Edition of the movie and the book “Lights, Camera, Magic!:
The Making of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”, which I already posted some photos, but I’ll re-post them.
