Saw a documentary last night that in part covered the phenomenon of wizard
rock. This is rock about all the characters in the Harry Potter series.

Looking into it today and I'm just overwhelmed by what a big movement this is
and all the music that's been produced. Much of it is very funny.

I'm just amazed at this video of people at the beach. This is not animation.
It's tilt shifted video and those are real people. Isn't the effect intensely
cool?
