Shooting in HD on the Panasonic HVX 900, Orlando DP/Partner Dan Beckmann, spent the morning “going live” with NBC’s The Today Show.  Shooting live bumps, and teases of the iconic Hogwarts castle, Beckmann helped announce a new contest tie-in with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort.

In order to enter the contest, teachers and their classes (ages five to eighteen) are required to produce a three-minute (or less) video answering the following question: “Why is my class extraordinary?”

The winners will be part of a three-day, two-night trip to the opening celebration festivities of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida.

This contest is now open, and runs through March 19, 2010.
