Dale Newton of FX company Framestore is featured in an interview on the production of the beautiful “movie within a movie” animated sequence in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 1. The 2.5 min. animated sequence tells the Tale of the Three Brothers from the “Tales of Beedle the Bard”. The animation’s unique back-lit style borrows from the pioneering paper cut-out animations of Lotte Reininger and traditional puppetry of the Mediterranean and Far East. The Framestore team took 6 months to complete this inspirational animation, using ZBrush to develop and texture the assets prior to animation.
