New Game of Thrones Season 7 VFX Video Shows the Many Layers of Special Effects (VIDEO)
HBO’s Game of Thrones series has been well known throughout its run for its prolific use of visual effects well and beyond any other show on television. The presence of visual effects became even more present this season, given the shorter number of episodes and greater story focus on the more magical elements of the show. Fans were excited to see more sequences involving Daenerys’ dragons and the White Walkers this time around, and now a new Game of Thrones season 7 VFX video has surfaced, showing the many layers of visual effects present in this season’s biggest scenes.
El Ranchito Imagen Digital has uploaded a video showcasing the details behind some of the biggest Game of Thrones season 7 sequences that they helped produce the visual effects for. Most of the scenes shown are those containing the White Walkers, who have become the main antagonistic force of the series now that their presence has been made more known to the show’s characters. A lot of the season’s 6th episode consisted of Jon Snow and company’s excursion beyond the wall to capture a White Walker, and the majority of the scenes containing White Walkers necessitated several layers of visual effects to realistically look like the scene took place beyond the wall.
It is quite breathtaking to see just how much work goes into the more detailed Game of Thrones action sequences. While we might have to wait more than a year for the 8th and final season, it will definitely be worth the wight. I mean, wait. What do you guys think about this Game of Thrones season 7 VFX video?
