Sets

.The film's production designer is Academy Award winner Stuart Craig.^ Also, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, USA puts out a Saturn Award each year, and I will try and note it if the film wins the award for Best Sceince Fiction Film of that year.

.Several new sets are introduced in this film, including Tom Riddle's Orphanage, Astronomy Tower and the Cave.^ Here Craig revealed that he is now busy designing sets for the project, including the astronomy tower where a beloved character will sadly plummet to his death.

^ Afterwards, the director changed plans again, went back to the original setting and faithfulness to the book, put a new cast together and secretly shot the film.

.Craig noted that the film used several CGI sets, noticeably the interior of the Cave where Harry and Dumbledore both go to hunt Horcruxes.^ Not to say they weren't some gorgeous scenes in the movie (Dumbledore and Harry's journey to the cave and everything that happened there w/ the inferi and stuff) but overall it wasn't one of the best potter films.

.We'd had our first totally virtual set on the last film, so we approached this one with a bit more confidence."^ The film is set in 1957, making it nineteen years since Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, thus acknowledging the real-life passing of years between films.

^ The cron job sets the archive bit for files modified within the last 24 hours.

^ It’s a bit of a hanky one, and a family movie to some extent, although for older children, because some of the elements might puzzle the younger set.

Cinematography

Bruno Delbonnel was the film's cinematographer.[6] .David Yates remarked Bruno's work on the film as "The choice of angles, the extreme close-ups, the pacing of the scenes...It's very layered, incredibly rich."^ This one is slower paced, quieter, perhaps because it is part of the trilogy, and he needed to set-up the “scene” so to speak.

.One of the major challenge for Bruno Delbonnel was lighting in the film.^ There is one major difference in the film and that is in inclusion of NAS. “Neural Attenuation Syndrome (NAS) is a fictional diseasein the film, which is not present in the short story.

.In an interview to the Academy, he said, "Some of the sets are there since the very first Potter.^ With the rating, "Half-Blood Prince" will be the first "Harry Potter" movie to receive a PG rating since " Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban ".

As if the school was a dark character. That’s when I suggested to go for this (again) dark moody variations of grays. Fortunately David Yates, and the producers liked the idea."
About the cave scene he added, "I wanted to have some kind of 'dynamism' with the light. . I thought it could be interesting and more dramatic if the light was floating, circling above the characters faces: sometimes lighting them, sometimes hiding them in a very random and unpredictable way." [44]
.The film was exclusively shot with monochrome colors, especially the scenes of Draco Malfoy in the Room of Requirement.^ Pointing out that the trailer focuses more on Draco Malfoy, Cinema Blend revealed there will be one particular scene which cannot be found in the book.

  Due to the film's overly dark tones, Warner Bros. asked director .David Yates and cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel to add more colors to the film, as they could barely see a thing on screen.^ "I mean, the one thing when I read the script I could always yearn for was more darkness and more of that real intense stuff, because I enjoy doing that more, but hopefully this time we have struck a balance between that darkness and a certain comedy in this film."

Filming

Hero Fiennes-Tiffin as young Tom Riddle.
.Following a week of rehearsals, principal photography began on 24 September 2007 and ended on 17 May 2008.[46] Before filming began, there was belief that filming might move from the UK, where all previous films were shot.^ Listed by the American Film Institute (AFI) as the 15th greatest film of all time, and the quote, “may the force be with you” is the 8th greatest.

[47] The Sunday Business Post in Ireland noted that the film's producers and WB executives had been scouting there, specifically Leinster and Munster because they "believe they have now exhausted possible locations in Britain." They are "particularly keen on Ireland, as the landscape is similar to Britain and will appear similar to the settings of the previous films."[48] .The crew also scouted around Cape Wrath in Scotland, for use in the cave scene.^ The person, whose name is Sue Quinn, was said to have surveyed area around Cape Wrath, known for its spectacular cliffs and caves.

About Dumbledore's ring of fire, he noted that the effect would look as if someone sprayed propane and then lit it. .He added, "We did a lot of research on molten volcanoes, which have a lot of heat going on but no actual flames, and collected a bunch of other references, including flares that burn underwater, and showed them to the Potter folks."^ This consequently put a question mark on the continuation of the production for other epic fantasy movies, including " Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ".

.Chris Tilly of IGN UK commented on the length of the film, saying "while on occasion it drags, the 153 run-time never feels too long, thanks in no small part to the astonishing visuals and (largely) marvellous performances," and goes on to say, "This is by far the best-looking of the Potter films thus far," commending the "beautiful" Quidditch match and the "stunning" finale.^ A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… ” One of the most memorable opening lines in the history of film, this is THE SciF movie of it’s generation, and of the century.

^ Earth’s last battle will be fought in space.” This was a long-time favorite of mine, and ‘lost’ during the years of only 3-4 channels and no VCRs.

David Stratton, of Margaret and David At The Movies, gave the film a 2.5 out of a possible 5 stars, remarking, "For non-readers [of the Harry Potter series] the films are now borderline incomprehensible", and that the film was "a little tedious" and "generally less interesting visually than its predecessors."

.The British Academy Film and Television Arts longlisted the film as a potential nominee in the Make Up and Hair, Special Visual Effects, Sound, Costume Design, Production Design, and Cinematography categories.^ The first to use Dolby Surround Sound to it’s fullest, and the infamous special effects from Lucas’s Industrial Light and Magic (created just for this film, and using Adobe PhotoShop, created by designers (later to work for ILM) in the 1980s), it was the only film in its class.

^ Nothing special, no super visual effects, no eye-popping violence or terror, just good suspense and thrills.

^ We are not alone.” A landmark SciFi film, not only for it’s special effects, but also for it’s portrayal of aliens as benign, rather than the War of the Worlds type that had sterotyped generations of movies.
