SlashFilm posted two videos today showing the digital effects that take place in the Game of Thrones television series. I’m usually not one to get too excited for digital effects in movies. If it’s not done flawlessly, it completely removes me from the story. Particularily with CGI characters.
These videos are neat, though. I always forget just how much is done digitally these days and how seemless it is. The first video is from SSVFX, and it focuses more on inserting items and crowds into scenes. The second video, which includes some spoilers, is from BlueBolt and focuses on scene backdrops.
If you haven’t been watching Game of Thrones and reading George R.R. Martin’s books, you’re really missing out. Like, really missing out. You should feel mildly ashamed.
