The final act

image

From beyond the gates of Hogwarts, the cast and crew of the last but one instalment of the Harry Potter series talk about the fun they had while filming the magical adventure.

Growing up outside Hogwarts

After more than a decade, Harry Potter has finished shooting at Leavesden Studios. But from the first day, a strange atmosphere hung over the set — a sense of melancholy that after 10 years and countless technical and artistic challenges met and overcome, this was the final act — and the pressure is intense as the cast and crew try to outdo themselves one last time.

Says Daniel Radcliffe, “There’s definitely an awareness that this is the last one and we really have to get it right. I think, on the other films, we always knew there’d be another chance. This time, we’re very eager to make sure everything goes to plan and it’s the spectacular ending everyone wants.”

The seventh film sees Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his trusted friends, Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), unmoored from the protection of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as they embark on a quest to find and destroy the ‘Horcruxes’. Much of the first part of the film will be taken up by conflicts between the three friends, and by their desperate attempts to stay one step ahead of those hunting for them.

Director David Yates, who also made “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”, says, “The first part is going to feel very much like a road movie. We’re taking these three characters away from the comfort zone of Hogwarts. You’re so used to the surroundings of this magical school with all its trappings, you’re almost conditioned to expect that things will start in the Great Hall, and a lot of the story will take place in the school.”

The first film also brings the characters into the very real world of contemporary London. “It felt very different,” agrees Rupert Grint. “Since we left Hogwarts, there were no familiar sets. One night we filmed in Piccadilly Circus in London, which was really amazing. They closed off the whole road; it was a massive operation. It was so weird having total control over that part of town, that it was closed off just for us.”

Yates adds, “These three kids are thrown into the grown-up world for the first time, with all its jeopardy and all its dangers. They’re exposed and vulnerable in a way they’ve never really been vulnerable before. So it’s like a thriller in a way, but I think it will feel fresher to the audience.”

One of the very earliest scenes gives a good illustration of the challenges involved. A group of Harry’s schoolfriends and members of the Order of the Phoenix arrive at the Dursely’s home to transport Harry back to the wizarding world without giving Voldemort’s Death Eaters a chance to attack him en route.

The plan involves Ron, Fred and George Weasley, Fleur Delacourt, Hermione and a wizard called Mundungus Fletcher drinking vials of Polyjuice potion to turn into Harry’s doppelgangers, so the Death Eaters won’t know which of the seven Harrys fleeing the building is the real one.

Except of course, in the real world, a bit of CG-trickery was needed to allow Daniel Radcliffe to play seven parts at once. And since CG can’t do everything, “it’s the single most complicated sequence we’ve done on any of the films,” Radcliffe says. “Everyone’s changing into me and no one knows what’s going on; I’m dressing up as everyone else… they’re dressing up as me, and it’s quite confusing. But considering how hard it is, it’s going quite quickly.” Says Yates, “This bit is technically tricky and time-consuming, and it involves a lot of planning. To get eight seconds of ‘Wow, that’s cool!’ takes so much effort. But it will be incredibly fun to watch.”

On the run

The ‘road movie’ section — when Harry, Ron and Hermione, knowing that they are Voldemort’s real target, leave family and friends behind and go on the run — presented new challenges. Apart from shooting exterior scenes around the glens of Scotland and many other outside locations, most of the films have been based on sets at Leavesden. But the long journey around Britain that Harry, Ron and Hermione undertake in this film meant that there was much more location work to be done this time. Radcliffe recalls, “We probably spent the first three months on and off at locations. We sort of did it all in one big block.”

Luckily, the usually rainy British summer time cooperated. “There were a few times we couldn’t go outside because of the rain,” grins Rupert Grint, “but we were quite lucky, really. It was a fun time on the road because we really were living quite rough for parts of it. I had to wear a wig, actually, to give the sense of time passing when we can’t cut our hair. It eventually gets really bushy and crazy!”

“We did one scene where we’re in the forest and we get chased by Death Eaters,” recalls Emma Watson. “They had the camera on a zip wire, to run at twice the speed we can, so we’re going full-out downhill, dodging trees, with six guys behind us going crazy. They had two camera guys on quad bikes chasing us as well. It got quite competitive! I did quite a lot of athletics at school, so I enjoyed giving Dan and Rupert a run for their money!”

Grint responds, “I’m not used to running so that was quite a new thing for me, but I think I did alright. Dan was quite keen to show us up but I kept up pretty well.”

“You end up wishing you hadn’t given it so much on the first take,” laughs Watson. “You just don’t have the stamina to keep it up. By day three you don’t care anymore if there’s a snatcher behind you; you just want to slow down. I haven’t had this much action or stunts since the third film, though, so it’s nice to have a break from the heavy emotional stuff and spend days where it’s like, ‘OK, run, go!’”

Drawing curtains

But for all the scale and bombast, it’s still the little things that get everyone talking, like the fact that, after six books of a steadily developing love story between Ron and Hermione, this time they actually kiss.

“It’s just very, very weird,” laughs Emma Watson. “I grew up with both of them, so it was just really awkward. The nicest thing about it was that, before we did it, we just turned to each other and said, ‘Gosh, this is going to be awful, isn’t it?’ So at least we were both in the same boat!”

And how will they all cope with the end of the Potter era? “I hope I’ll work with these people again,” says Radcliffe. “But the fact that we were all here as a team, I’ll probably never have that again. It’s a sad thought that this band of brothers will have to dissolve. But we will all stay in contact, I’m sure.”

“There’s a mixed feeling really,” says Rupert Grint. “Part of me doesn’t really want it to end, because it’s been a huge part of my life and it’s going to be weird not to have that routine. But, at the same time, I’m ready to move on. It’s been 10 years, so it’s nice to have a bit of freedom.”

“This has been like my home, my school, my family, it’s been everything,” says Emma Watson. “Obviously I’ll be very sad to leave so many people that I care about behind, but excited to do other things as well. I actually have the funny feeling that the three of us will remain close after all of this is over, because we’ve shared this experience.”

In a Digital Age, Students Still Cling to Paper Textbooks

They text their friends all day long. At night, they do research for their term papers on laptops and commune with their parents on Skype. But as they walk the paths of Hamilton College, a poster-perfect liberal arts school in this upstate village, students are still hauling around bulky, old-fashioned textbooks — and loving it.

Heather Ainsworth for The New York Times
Jason Mariasis, the president of Hamilton College’s Entrepreneur Club, which started a Web site that allows students to sell textbooks to one another

“The screen won’t go blank,” said Faton Begolli, a sophomore from Boston. “There can’t be a virus. It wouldn’t be the same without books. They’ve defined ‘academia’ for a thousand years.”

Though the world of print is receding before a tide of digital books, blogs and other Web sites, a generation of college students weaned on technology appears to be holding fast to traditional textbooks. That loyalty comes at a price. Textbooks are expensive — a year’s worth can cost $700 to $900 — and students’ frustrations with the expense, as well as the emergence of new technology, have produced a confounding array of options for obtaining them.

Internet retailers like Amazon and Textbooks.com are selling new and used books. They have been joined by several Web services that rent textbooks to students by the semester. Some 1,500 college bookstores are also offering rentals this fall, up from 300 last year. Here at Hamilton, students this year have a new way to avoid the middleman: a nonprofit Web site, created by the college’s Entrepreneur Club, that lets them sell used books directly to one another.

The explosion of outlets and formats — including digital books, which are rapidly becoming more sophisticated — has left some students bewildered. After completing the heavy lifting of course selection, they are forced to weigh cost versus convenience, analyze their own study habits and guess which texts they will want for years to come and which they will not miss.

“It depends on the course,” said Victoria Adesoba, a pre-med student at New York University who was standing outside that school’s bookstore, a powder-blue book bag slung over her shoulder. “Last semester, I rented for psychology, and it was cheaper. But for something like organic chemistry, I need to keep the book. E-textbooks are good, but it’s tempting to go on Facebook, and it can strain your eyes.”

For all the talk that her generation is the most technologically adept in history, paper-and-ink textbooks do not seem destined for oblivion anytime soon.

According to the National Association of College Stores, digital books make up just under 3 percent of textbook sales, although the association expects that share to grow to 10 percent to 15 percent by 2012 as more titles are made available as e-books.

In two recent studies — one by the association and another by the Student Public Interest Research Groups, a national advocacy network — three-quarters of the students surveyed said they still preferred a bound book to a digital version.

Many students are reluctant to give up the ability to flip quickly between chapters, write in the margins and highlight passages, although new software applications are beginning to allow students to use e-textbooks that way.

“Students grew up learning from print books,” said Nicole Allen, the textbooks campaign director for the research groups, “so as they transition to higher education, it’s not surprising that they carry a preference for a format that they are most accustomed to.”

Indeed, many Hamilton students waxed passionate about the weighty tomes they still lug from dorm room to lecture hall to library, even as they compulsively check their smartphones for text messages and e-mails.

“I believe that the codex is one of mankind’s best inventions,” said Jonathan Piskor, a sophomore from North Carolina, using the Latin term for book.

That passion may be one reason that Barnes & Noble College Booksellers is working so hard to market its new software application, NOOKstudy, which allows students to navigate e-textbooks on Macs and PCs. The company, which operates 636 campus bookstores nationwide, including Hamilton’s, introduced the free application last summer in hopes of luring more students to buy its electronic textbooks.

“The real hurdle is getting them to try it,” said Tracey Weber, the company’s executive vice president for textbooks and digital education.

The company is giving away “College Kick-Start Kits” to students who download NOOKstudy in the fall semester, with ramen noodle recipes and a dozen classic e-books like “The Canterbury Tales” and “The Scarlet Letter.” CourseSmart, a consortium of major textbook publishers, is letting students try any e-textbook free for two weeks.

But not every textbook is available in digital or rental format. At Hamilton, for instance, only about one-fifth of the titles are sold as e-textbooks this fall. A stroll through the campus store revealed the price difference. A book on constitutional law, for instance, was $189.85 new, $142.40 used and $85.45 for rent. (Typically, an e-textbook is cheaper than a used book, though more expensive than a rental.)

Béatrice de Géa for The New York Times
Victoria Adesoba, a New York University student, said her decision to buy or rent textbooks depended on the course. She said e-texts tempted her to visit Facebook.

The expense of college textbooks, which is estimated to have risen four times the inflation rate in recent years, has become such a concern that some politicians are taking up the cause. Last month, Senator Charles E. Schumer of New York urged more college stores to rent books, after a survey of 38 campus bookstores in New York City and on Long Island by his office found that 16 did not offer the option.

On Thursday, students at more than 40 colleges nationwide are planning an Affordable Textbooks Day of Action, organized by the Student Public Interest Research Groups, to encourage faculty members to assign texts that are less expensive, or offered free online.

For now, buying books the old-fashioned way — new or used — prevails. Charles Schmidt, the spokesman for the National Association of College Stores, said that if a campus store sold a new book for $100, it would typically buy the book back for $50 at semester’s end and sell it to the next student for $75.

The buy-back price plummets, however, if the professor drops the book (or edition) from the syllabus or if the bookstore has bought enough books to meet demand. When Louis Boguchwal, a junior at Hamilton who is majoring in economics and math, tried to sell a $100 linear algebra textbook back to the college bookstore, he was offered $15.

“It was insulting,” he said. “They give you next to nothing.”

Thus, the creation of Hamilton’s new nonprofit Web site, getmytextbooks.org. So far, traffic has been light: only about 70 books have been sold this fall. But Jason Mariasis, president of the Entrepreneur Club, said he expected sales to pick up as word spread. The site also lists hundreds of other colleges.

Mr. Begolli, a member of the club, recently sold three German novels for $17 on the site. “If I had sold them back to the bookstore, I would have gotten $7 or $8,” he said. “The bookstore is king when it comes to textbook sales. We felt there should be something for students, by students.”

Yet some students have to go it alone. Rosemary Rocha, 26, an N.Y.U. student pursuing a degree in hospitality and tourism management, tallied up her required reading for the semester: $600. “It’s harsh,” she said. “I’m currently collecting unemployment, so that’s not going to happen.”

Instead, she waits to borrow the few copies her professors leave on reserve at the library, or relies on the kindness of classmates. “My friends will let me borrow their books in exchange for coffee or a slice of pizza,” she said. “I very seldom buy the textbooks, but I’m always like a chicken without a head.”

Just face it

How do you watch without being watched on social networking sites? Sriya Narayanan on overcoming problems relating to privacy in the tangled web.

The World Wide Web is an icky place. Unlike the physical universe (that has limited room for garbage), cyberspace keeps track of everything we say and do, simply because it can. The good news is we already know. The bad news is we sometimes forget.

Ever Googled yourself and felt mortified at the report card that showed up in a nanosecond? If yes, the lesson to be learnt is embarrassingly simple — don’t sign a petition addressed to Robert Pattinson titled “Puncture my neck and bless me with eternal romance”. And if you must, use a fake name. Despite the Internet’s supposed ‘watch without being watched’ quality, most websites, particularly the social networking variety, have diabolical ways to track our movements and display them to hundreds of chuckling strangers. Last year, Facebookers were distraught when a pair of binoculars showed up on their friends’ profiles. The tell-tale application (called Who’s Watching You) listed everyone who had visited their profiles in the recent past and displayed their faces in a giant collage. Even cautious Twitter users who opt for ‘protected updates’ can be re-tweeted by their followers to an audience they’ve never met.

Because of how fast technology evolves, it’s impossible to anticipate what virtual skeletons will tumble out of the computer screen. Privacy settings have mind-numbing jargon and when you’re trying to instal software in a hurry, the ten-page disclaimer is better left unread. The real problem is how easily the Internet can “pick up” information and store it elsewhere, rendering you powerless. While things can’t be unsaid in real life either, the online world files things away publicly under your name, with a time stamp to boot. Once the ‘post’ button has been pressed, it’s no use deleting the comment, deactivating your account and wiping off your fingerprints from the keyboard with a damp cloth. That random rant written in a fit of boredom is like the great undead that will come to life at every chance. And thanks to the trail of virtual breadcrumbs, anyone can find anyone else. This has mixed results. You might rediscover a childhood companion or find yourself staring at friend requests from the gang who made high school hell.

Internet-enabled reunions inevitably end with the formation or revival of an e-group. If the moderators are not careful, the group ends up with default settings that make emails publicly visible. A conversation thread with mobile numbers, meeting places and other personal details begins, and all it takes is one search for the string to unravel much to the delight of identity thieves and stalkers.

Fix-it technologies are hard to come by. There are dozens of tricks and strategies that need to be learnt, with no guaranteed results. Even an ancient blog post that was purged from the archives long ago could magically reappear in another listing, sprouting sentences that look only vaguely familiar. At times like this, there’s not much else to do except sit back and hope that the offending website that someone started in his mother’s basement runs out of funding and shuts down.  

DAMAGE CONTROL 101

1. Gmail goggles: Turn on Mail Goggles before heading out for drinks. The feature, which is a hit with party animals, prevents you from sending out reckless declarations of love or hatred. It makes you do some math before allowing you to hit ‘send’. Can’t do the math? You’ll need to log off and return tomorrow.

2. Message Recall: Some office mail applications have this option but it only works if the message hasn’t been read yet and if the recipient lets you recall it.

3. Facebook faux pas: Did your friend upload an unflattering photo of you and ignore requests to delete it? Click on ‘remove tag’. It will still be online but won’t show up in your list.

4. No comments: If you made a comment on a public forum and there’s no delete option, change your display name so it doesn’t show up in search results for your real name.

5, Confidential chat: On Google chat, select “Go off the record” to prevent chats from being saved and reproduced.

National heritage status for elephant

image

The declaration of the elephant as the National Heritage Animal of India on Thursday by the Union government has received hearty welcome from animal lovers. The decision has special significance in Kerala because the State has a large number of captive elephants and the manner in which they are kept has been constantly questioned by animal lovers.

In fact, Kerala is a State where the figure of human-captive elephant conflict is very high and this is often attributed to a natural reaction from the side of the animal to the cruelty to which it is being often subjected.

The National Heritage Animal status for the elephant was one of the important recommendations of 12-member Elephant Task Force which submitted its report to the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests on August 31.

The government accorded the prestigious status for the elephant following the approval of the Elephant Task Force recommendation by the Standing Committee of the National Board for Wildlife at its meeting on October 13. Project Elephant Director A.N. Prasad has said it will be notified in the Gazette of India soon.

Private ownership

Animal rights activist Maneka Gandhi told The Hindu that she wholeheartedly welcomes the decision. But now since the elephant has been declared a National Heritage Animal there can no more be private ownership of elephants for the simple reason that a National property cannot be owned by private individuals.

All temples and private individuals owning elephants should immediately surrender them to the government. But, has the machinery for that been constituted, she asked. So, in the first place, the setup for that has to be evolved and then there should be rescue centres for such elephants. There should also be clarity on the punishment for private individuals if they happen to keep this National Heritage Animal. Unless there are subsidiary rules, the declaration may not serve its purpose, she said.

Important step

Elephant Task Force member Suparna Ganguly has said that she is absolutely motivated and excited over the declaration. This should have been done many years ago. The present precarious condition of elephants in India warrants more resources. The moot point is that if the world needs the elephant India has to take the lead for it and the declaration is one important step in that direction.

Animal rights activist A.G. Babu has said he will welcome the decision in all laudable terms. But it has to be ensured that the declaration does not remain only on paper. Already there is a heritage status for the elephant as people see it as Lord Ganesha. In spite of that the animal in captivity is subjected to untold cruelty. It has to be ensured now that better days have dawned for the elephants, especially for those in captivity, he said.

Former president of the Kerala Sastra Sahitya Parishad M.K. Prasad has said that the elephant richly needs the status. Though a huge animal the elephant never evokes fear in human minds, at least in India. He hopes the national status will bring an end to the untold cruelty to which captive elephants are subjected to at the hands of man.
