Game of Thrones: A Great Behind-the-Scenes Look at The Show’s Visual Effects

Maybe you’re a diehard Game of Thrones fan. Maybe you’re not. Either way, you’ll mar­vel at this behind-the-scenes video. The short clip was put togeth­er by Mack­e­vi­sion, one of the VFX (visu­al effects) stu­dios that worked on Sea­son 4 of the HBO series. As one com­menter on Metafil­ter not­ed, “The obvi­ous stuff, such as cas­tles in the back­ground, is expect­ed. As is adding in extra troops. But adding the fog, bits of vines and chang­ing the col­or of the grass are the lit­tle touch­es that enliv­en a scene. Love they’re mak­ing moun­tains just pop in the back­ground to illus­trate the VFX work.” Anoth­er com­menter not­ed, “It feels like a mod­ern-day Python ani­ma­tion.” All I can say is that we’ll have more on that lat­er today.
