Game of Thrones: 18 Hours at the Paint Hall

Emilia

In this thorough look at the making of Game of Thrones, titled “Game of Thrones: 18 Hours at the Paint Hall,” HBO takes us behind the scenes of one incredibly challenging day while shooting season six. On this busy and long day, all three shooting units- Wolf, Dragon and White Walker- worked in Belfast’s Paint Hall at Titanic Studios. With commentary from the showrunners, cast and crew of Game of Thrones, we see the process involved in getting ready with hair and makeup, visit the props and workshops, and see the cameras rolling on major season six moments.

The video has been available through various outlets such as HBO Now and On Demand for some time, but only recently has become available in HD on YouTube. Check it out:

    2. wow. love the behind the scenes videos. So much work goes into the show. Weapons, make-up, props……costumes? Hey, they forgot something! All those actors aren’t naked. Maybe someday a whole behind the scene video will be all about the costumes. How do they get all those extras dressed?

      PS: I’m a costumer, working on a show like this one would be my dream job.

    3. Love it , fascinating what all goes into the show- but whats up with the captioning? I depend on it for these videos; they are usually a bit off, but this time some of it was incomprehensible. (try turning sound off and just watching the captions and you’ll know what I mean). Wonder what dept or person is in charge of that….anyone have any idea?

      This video was uploaded by a random user, and not from HBO direct.

      But yes, this video is truly fascinating. It really, really shows the dedication and motivation.

    6. OT-Question:

      When will the Creative Arts Emmy ceremony start? Or in other words, can an European who still has plans tomorrow morning stay up through the live tweets?

    7. Dragonslayer,

      The Creative Arts Emmys is both tonight and tomorrow night from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Pacific Time. That’s 8pm to 10pm Eastern US Time. Do the math for your own time zone. 🙂

    8. Why do they keep changing the name of the 3rd unit? One years it’s Lion unit, another it’s Raven unit, last year it was White Walker?

    9. It never ceases to amaze me the kind of brilliance it takes behind the scenes to create this epic show. There must be some major Operations research analyst at work here to manage the level of planning & scheduling required for the different units. Oh how I wish to be a fly on the wall at Painthall.

      Myname,
      So Alfie is in London I thought he was filming.

    10. Cathair,

      The captions are on the video that the fan downloaded, the fan wouldn’t have done the captioning. I did some goggling and think I’d found a contact. I know Im not the only hearing impaired fan who has been frustrated about it so I’ll see what I can do

    11. This originally aired a couple of months ago over the 4th of July weekend but everyone missed it. I remember how they mentioned that very late in production (relatively) they split off into a third unit which surprised me. I wonder if there was a lot of rewriting / reshooting last season? The sort of haphazard way they handled Trystane’s death might have implied that they initially planned more for the Dorne characters.

    12. Myname,

      A weekend break from filming? I hope Kit goes along with them to Belfast for filming this coming week.

      From every interview and behind the scenes footage I have seen of Emilia, she seems absolutely adorable.
