Spoiler alert: dragons aren’t actually real.
All cleared up? Good. Now we can show you this astonishing VFX reel from Macklevision, the creative geniuses behind Game Of Thrones - sure to pique the interest any fan of the HBO blockbuster series, along with anyone curious as to just how these sorts of epic productions are digitally born.
Scored to a dramatic theme, you can see how the world of Westeros is brought to life from the minor tinkering of ship masts, to the high-resolution addition of whole towns and armies via a few mouse clicks. And it’s testament to the production whizzes, that we’re mightily impressed by the whole process.
But don’t worry, the throne is real. We think.
