University of Bradford graduates have been working their magic on Harry Potter.

Eight graduates who have passed through the university’s Department of Creative Technology have worked on the hit movies about the boy wizard, helping make the films come to life.

The films have been made using almost wholly British production teams, which has been good news for the University’s creative graduates, said Mark Goodliff, who is head of the Department of Creative Technology.

He said: “The Harry Potter movies have spearheaded a tremendous growth in the UK’s visual effects industry and I am extremely proud of our graduates’ involvement throughout the whole of the series of films.”

University of Bradford graduates who have worked on the films are Chris Ung, Pete Oldroyd, Jason Hue, Peng Ke, Keir Londgen, Tom Whittington, Marc Rice and Steven Molyneaux
