New “Making Game of Thrones” blog post, and some Season 5 speculation

GOT_S5_Quarry

Dave Hill, new screenwriter for Game of Thrones Season 5, has shared another Making Game of Thrones blog post. This one, entitled “Shivering for the Shot”, offers us a tiny insight into the gruelling task of waiting for natural lighting conditions to allow the perfect shot.

Day 77: From the bottom of a quarry, our VFX supervisor looks up at the ridge above us and shakes his head. As we all shiver in 4°C shadow, he’s praying the sun won’t rise over the ridge and bathe us in its loving warmth. Because we have some serious VFX elements in this scene and shadows are much easier to match than light. For VFX, hell isn’t other people – it’s the sunlight on their faces.

Season 5 speculation below the cut.

Kit Harington: Doing Stuff!

You heard it here first: Kit Harington is doing stuff!

Not only is the hirsute heartthrob gearing up for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones (Season Five! Three months away! Insert snazzy and age-appropriate “Get Hype”-ish exclamation!)… he’s making the interview rounds for his film Testament of Youth.

But of course the only thing anyone ever wants to talk about is Game of Thrones.

Because it’s Game of Thrones. C’mon.

(I mean, I’m not saying that specifically because this is a Game of Thrones fan site. Which, you know, should probably be taken into consideration. But look, GoT has infiltrated the pop culture psyche like no HBO show ever has before it. Tony Soprano can go Hodor himself, for all the world cares.)
