Presto! The magic of 'Harry Putter'

NORTHFIELD, Minn., June 5 (UPI) -- A Minnesota college student plans to release a series of films on the Internet containing interviews with the "real" Harry Potter, one "Harry Putter."

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Jeremy Gustafson, who hopes to be a film director, will get his first chance by creating "mockumentaries" of the famous literary and cinematic character.

In the short films, Putter -- claiming to be the "real" Harry Potter -- will detail how the Potter films and books either embellishes or limits aspects from his life. This includes the Potter mainstay location of Diagon Alley, which Putter reveals to be merely the Mall of America.

Gustafson, who bears a striking resemblance to Daniel Radcliffe, the actor who plays Harry Potter in films, expects no problems from Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling, as his films will be available free on the Internet, the newspaper said.

"We're just doing it to have fun and to learn", Gustafson told the Pioneer Press.
