Games of Thrones Visual Effects

(YouTube link)

If you've been following the HBO series Game of Thrones, you may be a bit unsettled to see how BlueBolt created that fantasy world through visual effects. I am impressed with the things they can do with green screen these days! May contain spoilers, but only the first season is on this video. -via Geeks Are Sexy

Almost all TV shows use this these days, for quite a while now.

I was watching some episode from Covert Affairs the other day. Because the show was so uninspiring I started checking how many scenes used green screen. Turned out almost EVERY SINGLE ONE! No joke. Pretty unbelievable.

But it explains to an extent why the show feels weird. The actors can never react with the environment, they are always sort of floating in front of the background and you get a lot of short shots (because there is nowhere for them to go), which gets boring and artificial after a while.

Game of Thrones has to be the best adaptation of a fantasy novel onto the screen (big or small). Super cool to see how they pulled off these special effects.
