Harry Potter 5!? Are you mistaken?

What do you want these dementors to do? Do you want animated, or still?

It would probably be far more effective to get a tattered black cloak and film someone in front of a greenscreen while flapping the cloak about. Then you could slow that footage down and composite it into the normal speed footage, which would give it that necessary creepy Dementor look.

i was in the middle of reading Harry Potter 5 when i wrote this and the dementors were in HP 3. it would be great if they were animated but stills are ok.

Um, it would be good to do what Tarn said for a good looking shot, or what I said, but it would look bad, and no one will make one any better, unless of course they did what Tarn said to do.
