Instructions

When a young witch or wizard turns eleven, they receive a very special letter by Owl Post: their Hogwarts acceptance letter.

In order to create the scene where Harry receives thousands of duplicates of his letter in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, special effects supervisor John Richardson went for a practical effect rather than producing the letters digitally. “We built machines that would fling the envelopes out at a very rapid but controlled speed,” he explains. “These were built into the top of the set. We had another mechanism that fired them down the chimney using an air device.”

After showing director Chris Columbus the setup for the letters, Richardson recalls him exclaiming, “Gosh, it works! That’s great!”.
