Game of Thrones - VFX Breakdowns

Screen Scene VFX Breakdowns selects of Game of Thrones, season 1.

Here are a few of the 350 shots SSVFX worked on. Game of Thrones VFX has been nominated for an Emmy. Read here.

Lannister Encampment. As you can see there is plenty in this composition. Lots of 3D including over 1000 cg people, walking, talking, riding horses and interacting. You can see more within the video breakdown.

Please wait a moment whist all the breakdowns load.

Tournament grounds crowd duplications.

Bran’s climbing sequence. Ah we had some fun with these. Serious rig removal followed by fully cg created backdrops. 3D trees, ground, grass and rocks.

SSVFX looked after pretty much all the gore on season 1. Plenty of lovely moments. Decapitations, eye stabs, spears through bodies, sword slices, golden crowns and even heads on sticks. Lovely.

This was actually quite a tricky shot. The compositor had to re-align the arm and head to lock, then re build his face and arm to work. Certainly was an impacting shot in ep 5.

The many 3 eyed Raven shots. Tracking eyes onto birds was quite tricky although maybe less tricky than putting tracking markers onto a raven.

Outside Bran’s window when the library was on fire. This was one of those shots where slightly unsure of the grade, we had to ensure the detail was there, only for the grade to reduce its visibility.

Approach to the wall. This was all about making it look very wintery. DMP work and 3d projections. Lots of roto and tracking.

Another Lannister camp shot. With all those tiny 3d people going about their business.

Another camp shot. You’ve guessed it, more 3d people.

After battle scene. Again plenty of 3d people going about clearing away the dead. CG horse and debris. Lots of atmospherics.

Kudos again to all the artists who worked on these and all of SSVFX's shots.
