This is my attempt at recreating a scene from Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. With Christmas around the corner, I felt it was appropriate to refer to my favorite past time over Christmas break for this assignment. My family and I sit around the fire and rewatch all of the Harry Potter movies. Sorcerers Stone is the first movie, and the one I love the most. I vividly remember there being a scene during Christmas time at Hogwarts (the school of wizardry), and therefore, I did my research to discover the original picture shown above. It was my goal to master recreating this scene, but it was a lot more difficult than I thought. While I already knew recreating the background would be very difficult, I did not think that trying to imitate Harry would be such a challenge. I wore a dark blue sweater and tan-colored pants to try and match what Harry is wearing. Although I was successful in finding similar clothing, the lighting of the picture makes it hard to tell. Additionally, due to obstacles such as the dining table in the formal dining area, I was unable to space myself proportionally to the tree as they do in the movie. As stressful as it was to perfect the most accurate image, I enjoyed “playing,” the role of Harry. Hopefully, I will be better prepared the next time I complete an assignment like this.
