So one of the really cool things I love about 3D is the face that we can create landscapes within MAYA and animate a camera around the landscape and capture it like an actual motion picture. After we did this in class the other day I remembered a video I'd seen on one of the extras disks from Harry Potter. To do the outdoor scenes of the castle, they built a sculpture of the castle in a program that I'm assuming was a more advanced version of Maya. Then they animated the camera around the 3D model of Hogwarts. I can't find the video on youtube for some reason, but I'm almost positive it's on the bonus disk for the third movie.
Otherwise, here's a photo of the 3D model of the castle.
