An invitation to HogwartsUniversal Orlando: Here's a fun little fan video to brighten the day for Harry Potter fans.
From Robert NilesIt's not directly theme park related, but many of you are Harry Potter fans, so here's a fun little Harry Potter-inspired fan video, filmed and edited entirely by Theme Park Insider kid Brian Niles:

Brian's been doing some of the video editing for us on TPI, and I'm hoping to get some theme park videos from him later this year. So if you have requests for SoCal-related theme park videos (since that's where we live and the roadtrips are done for the year), we'd love to hear them in the comments.

From Jeff ElliottVery impressed!!

From TH CreativeRobert, You out to consider an annual "Theme Park Insider Film Festival." Participants could forward their own theme park related videos and we could all vote on the best clip.

Just a thought.
Meanwhile the Potter clip is charming and ... speaking of charm ... the Wolf family has dropped yet another vid on Youtube (The Wolf Family Dances Disney 2011).
From Rob PBrian's a talented lad. That's a very accomplished short film.

As for the request, I would love to see a walk-through tour of Disneyland.
From Robert NilesThe video was shot in Estes Park, Colorado.

Also, I like TH's idea of the video contest. What would it take to get some of you to participate?
From Joshua CounsilI'm down for the contest. No incentives needed.

From Andy MilitoI would be in too, Robert! I don't think there's anything needed, just some friendly competition :)

From Robert NilesTalk to me about what you'd like to see in terms of rules, format, length, deadlines, etc. Or should it be wide-open? I've got some ideas, but would love to hear what you think, since you'll probably come up with something far better than I could.

From TH CreativeYou might want vids submitted and then evaluated by a group of TPI regs who would cleave the choices down to five or six.

Make it an annual thing and you could end up with a fairly popular annual event.
From Robyn A.Wow! Talented young man you've got there!
