Harry Potter Moving Forward

A combination of hypnotic lulling, restlessness, and the sense of inevitability explain the fate of the Boy Who Lived through his first seventeen years of life.

This experimental short film collects in a supercut every moment in the Harry Potter cinematic universe where the camera—a character in its own right—is moving forward or otherwise zooming in. 
            The zoom device lends its typical purpose of emphasizing to push along (or maybe pull along) the plot across all eight films. key plot points and visual motifs are naturally in these zooming moments.
