CLASSROOM: The Groundbreaking VFX of ‘Game of Thrones’
At the beginning of the Game of Thrones saga, the VFX was minimal. things were shot on sets, effects were practical, and there wasn’t even that much CGI, but the deeper we got into the series the more the show relies on their VFX artists to contribute. It was once 600-800 shots a season has become the same amount per episode.
With such a complicated shooting schedule, VFX artists have to be given the scripts early to break down the season. Then they have to travel onto every set to make sure things run properly.
In this video by HBO, we get a behind the scenes look at how the VFX on Game of Thrones has changed over the past few years, and how they look to define VFX on television and amaze us with the final season.
