Harry Potter’s storycould not be told without them.They provide lessonsand challenges to our hero that ultimately help himgain the skills and confidence needed for his battle withLord Voldemort and the Dark Forces.
Bringing the film’s creatures to life started with Stuart Craig,production designer for all eightHarry Pottermovies. Working with producers David Heymanand David Barron;directors Chris Columbus,Alfonso Cuarón, Mike Newell, and David Yates and thesource—J. K. Rowling-Craigand his team of artists,designersanimators,and fabricators used time-honored techniques and invented new practical and digitalmethods to place the creatures on-screen.
Above all, the creatures had personality and individualityfirst imbued by concept artists Dermot Power, AdamBrockbank, Wayne Barlow,Rob Bliss,Paul Catling,Andrew Williamson, Julian Caldow, and others.“Whatis the character of this creature?”visual developmentartist Rob Bliss would ask himself.“Is it good or bad,intelligent or stupid?”Their artwork would provideinspiration and direction for teams of sculptors, modelers,makeup artists, painters, animatronic designers, anddigital artists, most of whom worked together throughout the entire film series.
