Weekend Remix: Last Dance at Hogwarts
By: Pogo aka Nick Bertke
Based On: Clips and Music From Harry Potter And The Philosophers Stone
Original Composer: Director Chris Columbus and Score Composer John Williams.
Faster than you can say Colloportus, the “Weekend Remix” is back, ready to say hello to the weekend and goodbye to a film franchise.
Admittedly, I may be showing my age by writing this, but a young pixandwords was a sophomore in high school when the first Harry Potter film, The Philospher’s Stone, came out. Hmm, carry the two, plus the five, divide by zero, and in internet years that’s a smidge before ancient. Don’t even ask my age when the books started.
As many of you know, this weekend marks the end of a magical era on the silver screen, as the eighth and final Harry Potter film, The Deathly Hallows Part 2 makes its behemoth emergence. One may have to hand it over to Warner Bros. for producing, at the very least, solid films based on the novels.
After roughly a decade of consistently having a new Potter film every few years, it’ll be strange to see it all kind of cease. But as that old saying goes, all good things must come to an end. And when facing the ending, it’s natural that we often take the time to look back and reflect.
This week’s remix is perhaps appropriate in that aspect, as Pogo’s Alohomora is really a video remix of when the film series began. Not only is the audio visual mix-mash catchy, but it’s also a brief spotlight placed on the film series’ beginnings.
Aloharoama is the perfect time to put down the paper mache Golden Snitches or stop drawing the Potter scar on your friend’s forehead with magic marker after they pass out, and simply reflect. And then of course, afterwards, you could always pick things back up with this funky theme remix.
If you’re interested, Potter isn’t the only one who has received the video remix treatment from Pogo. Based out of Perth, West Australia, the VJ has done viral remixes like Upular (Up), Alice (Alice In Wonderland), and Skynet Symphonic (Terminator 2: Judgement Day).

Until Next Weekend…GO Party!
