Rodeo FX has released a visual effects breakdown of their work on Game of Thrones season 4.
The visual effects company based out of Montreal was awarded with a Creative Arts Emmy recently for their contribution to the series, as one of the main vendors to work on season 4. Rodeo FX created a total of 150 shots for the season over the span of six months with the help of over 100 artists, project managers, and technicians.
This new breakdown shows off some of the truly amazing work that earned them a trophy, and acts as another friendly reminder that much of what we see on screen is completely computer generated.
Rodeo FX was given the task of creating the sprawling city of Meereen, and expanding the Unsullied army that stood at its gates. They also did much of the effects work north of the Wall, creating the White Walker’s zombie-horse, delivering us direwolves, and bringing in Stannis Baratheon’s cavalry.
Of their work on season 4, Rodeo’s VFX Supervisor Matthew Rouleau says, “There was such a contagious desire to perform and deliver beyond-stunning visual effects! The artists really put all their talent and their heart into the work; this is why we now have this amazing statuette decorating our office!”
