Cool Videos: Behind the FX of Game of Thrones

UPDATE - I don't watch "Game of Thrones" but I'm told there are some serious spoilers in the clip below. Proceed with caution...

I'm a sucker for these behind-the-scenes FX videos, especially when they show off the little things that you probably barely noticed when you were watching. In movies sometimes, the CGI is so blatant and noticeable, it takes you out of the viewing and you start obsessing over it. In TV though, they seem to be doing a better job of blending the CGI into practical locations (probably something that comes with having a smaller budget and needing to use your CGI wisely).

Below we have a demo reel of FX and CGI shots created for the popular HBO series "Game of Thrones." You get to see little things like smoke being added to chimneys and rather large things like creating little lizard/dragon characters. One thing is for sure after watching this, "Game of Thrones" is a beautifully shot show even without the CGI. Take a look and see what they're up to...

Wow, there was a lot more CGI than I thought. Good job, guys!

Oh, and for anyone who hasn't watched the show: WATCH IT. Seriously. It's just all kinds of awesome.

Great show

Thank you for this video!! It's a perfect example of how FX should be used. I never would have guest half the scenes they showed had CGI.

Awesome video, love the series and can't wait for more. I'm glad HBO is planning on keeping the series going for as long as possible.
