VFX Break Down of 'Game of Thrones' Final Season
The final season (eighth season) of "Game of Thrones" ended on May 19th, which accompanied many people for eight years, but did not wait for a convincing ending. The Night’s King hurried off the line, the mother of dragon（Daenerys） was blackened... According to the news of the Global Daily official, many netizens expressed their disappointment with the final article, and millions of fans around the world rushed to retake the ending. Netizens said that "there is no original, the scene is completely out of control." "The play of power" "I want to send the blade to the scriptwriter", and the screenwriter David Benioff shut down his personal Facebook account.
I heard that many people did not plan to see after the fourth episode, but the visual effects of Game of Thrones are obvious to all, and it does not affect us behind the scenes. In the final season, the visual effects team also spent a lot of thoughts during the production. The net flyer set budget is $15 Million. The render farm Fox Renderfarm was excerpts the classic picture of the final season, and shares the story behind the scenes in the following.
I still remember the little boy who appeared in the trailer, looking at the mighty army of Daenerys. This scenes was also done by visual effects.
The part of the Night’s King burning totem, originally thought to be the visual effect, did not expect to ask the stunt actor to take the real shot instead of the little boy, the visual effects team made a fire mask for this, let him be engulfed by the flame for nearly 10s, watching it is real dangerous.
The most impressive thing in this episode is that Jon Snow tamed another dragon of Daenerys, Leiga, these pictures are by the visual effects team in the sports base the action of the dragon is matched in the green shed, and the camera rotates around to complete the shooting.
The icefalls that Jon Snow and Daenerys dated were also real, but they were transplanted for the sake of more beautiful pictures.
A Long Night
The approach of the Death Corps made everyone in the Winterfell nervous, this episode is "black", but it is still very bright from the scene.
This episode has been filmed for 11 weeks in the snow night, all the staffs starting work at 6 pm every day until 5-6 am on the next day.
This episode of physical special effects props is more, you can see from the picture the death army on the floor, including many flames, smoke, snow and ice effects.
The mask of the stunt actor is also a prosthetic model designed in advance, and the makeup looks very realistic.
This section of Lena and the Giant was completed by the visual effects team through miniature models, actors' real shots and visual effects. This shot was taken many times and finally presented in front of the camera.
The ice dragon is made very fine. In order to make the dragon flame and the dragon look more harmonious, the props are also used to simulate the dragon's movement.
The shot that the Night’s King was killed in one second, to better for the production. The shed and the real scene were filmed.
The Last of the Starks
After the war, everyone in the Winterfell gathered together and bid farewell to the friends who died on the battlefield. The bodies of the soldiers were piled up and then ignited by the unity.
Cremation is a difficult task. How to control these fires without harming the actors is very elegant in design.
After the real shot, it also made a visual extension through visual effects.
Euron’s shooting at the sea with the "scorpion" was also completed in the green shed.
At the same time, Daenerys’s ship was destroyed and the actors were once again in a completely digital scene to show how the ships were destroyed, where people are standing, walking or talking on the ship. Finished on board.
The toughest set of shots in this episode is that the gates of the King’s Landing are destroyed by Drogon's dragon flame, covering eight cameras. In order to express the complexity of the destruction of the walls, these lenses need to show different perspectives of the explosion. At the beginning of the design of these buildings, the film crew also designed damage.
In this episode, six stunt performers were actually lit in multiple layers of protective clothing and masks. After the filming, someone took a total of 22 fire extinguishers to fight the fire.
As can be seen from the model produced for King's Landing, there is a large tower on one side of it, which is also the location of the story below.
Cersei and Jaimes were in their end in the King’s Landing’s cellar.
Nine major families, seven kingdoms, hundreds of people trapped in them, are firmly bound by the network of destiny, and there is a destination.
Here, the cloud rendering service Fox Renderfarm just summarizes the classic clips from the videos released by HBO. And also thank the Game of Thrones for companionship over this years.
