Deathly Hallows filming preparation underway

Back in May we told you that filming in the beautiful landscapes of Lochaber was expected to start late this year. Lochaber News is now reporting that filming scouts are observing the area and getting ready for b-roll shoots:

Film executives and location and special effects personnel have just completed an updating recce of the four picturesque glens which have featured in all the previous Harry Potter blockbusters.

They were researching the eventual making of not one but two movies out of JK Rowling's seventh and last best seller, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which was published last year. Teams of cinematography experts and production designers visited Glenfinnan, Glen Etive, Glencoe and Glen Nevis, all Lochaber landmarks which have already become established in the series.

As we learned earlier this year, cast filming for Deathly Hallows will not begin until February.
