20 years after their initial release, former Warner Bros Entertainment Senior Vice President of Creative Content Paul Hemstreet takes us through the initial development and production of the home entertainment extras for the first two Harry Potter films.
When Warner Bros acquired the film rights to the Harry Potter franchise it marked the historic rise of one of the most profitable home entertainment film series. Paul Hemstreet was there at the beginning and was tasked with developing the extras for these fan-favorite releases. Paul takes us through the concepting, development and execution of the ground-breaking extras and their impact on the continued explosion in popularity of the burgeoning DVD market in 2002.
