About this creation
Client: LEGO/Warner Bros.
Release Date: July 25, 2011
The second "Red Brick Saga" spot features the Hogwarts campus and its residents being hassled by a somewhat troublesome Red Brick.
The Harry Potter episode was the first part of the Red Brick Saga to be animated, despite being the second episode in the series. We had to rearrange our normal production approach to fit into the schedule allotted by LEGO and their licensees. This behind-the-scenes video might explain it better than I can (even though I'm the one explaining it in the video as well)...
The main attraction in this episode, at least in terms of building, is the detailed interior of Hogwarts castle (more info on that here)...
On the animation side of things, the most fun and challenging part of this episode was the Quidditch chase scene featuring Harry and his nemesis, Draco Malfoy.
