Last night’s HBO Special Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life aired, but most of us were probably watching the return of The Walking Dead and then the premiere of Better Call Saul on AMC. Well, those of us that missed it last night, or don’t have HBO and are one of the world record-breaking-download-pirates that stream the show based on George R. R. Martin‘s best selling books online can check it out on HBO’s YouTube page today. For Free!
The special takes fans behind the scenes on production for a full day of shooting that includes the three filming locations for season five in Croatia, Northern Ireland, and Spain.
Game of Thrones returns to television in April, and promises another season of plotting, back stabbing, naked men and women, more back stabbing, and a couple of dragons. The production is a ton of work, which you can see in the video below:
Well, what did you think? This doesn’t even take into account all the post filming CGI work that has to take place. All those fabulous backgrounds and effects that add flavor to the series. Here’s the Special Effects Reel from Rodeo FX from Season Four.
I love seeing the before and after effects, especially the background changes. Those really change the look and feel of the scenes. Well, we should be seeing some trailers, cast interviews, and other marketing for Game of Thrones soon. Check back and we’ll bring it to you here.
