We’ll be watching A Very Potter Musical on January 15, 2012 at 1:00PM Eastern via our new Synchtube Room at: http://www.synchtube.com/r/hpreview. If you don’t already have an account, make sure to sign up for one ahead of time. Log in & head to our room, but don’t start watching until 1PM! We’ll start it for everyone so that we’re all in sync with each other. Then we’ll watch & chat together!

If you’ve never used Synchtube before, there will be a practice run on January 14 at 8:00PM Eastern. We’ll work out the bugs and we hope everyone will feel more familiar with the site afterward. Feel free to join us at 8:00PM!

Countdown: 1 day to go!

Tomorrow is the big day! We can’t wait to chat with you all on Sunday, May 29 during the real event! Your mission today is simple: spread the word about the Harry Potter Movie Re-View by telling everyone who your favorite character in the first movie is. You can tweet, post on Facebook, post on your blog, do a vlog, mention it in your podcast–the possibilities are endless. Just tell people who your favorite character is and that you can’t wait to watch the first movie and chat online with fellow fans!

Lessons Learned from the Dry Run:
– have your film Ready To Go!
– use the atomic clock to know when to start the film.
– get ready well before start time!
