Belfast area extra Rimshot popped in to give us a report from the set of Your Highness currently filming in the Paint Hall. Here is what he had to say:
I’m still working on ‘Your Highness’ and I’m still bound by contract not to reveal any details about that production.
However, from a GOT point of view, it seems that they are going to film in Scotland for 2 weeks while sets are built in the paint hall. This is just from talking to transport crew on the set. Also, several costume crew I spoke to are planning to send their CVs to the GOT production offices so I imagine we’ll see some of the YH crew on GOT.
Actually, my brother in law’s girlfriend designed the warrior outfit that Natalie Portman is wearing in YH and she has sent her CV/portfolio to the GOT office so hopefully she might get a job. The feeling on the YH set is that we would all like to get work on GOT and it seems natural to go from one to the other.
Having had a good look at all the YH sets in the paint hall, there is at least 2 that I think could be used on GOT but again I can’t tell you what they are I’m afraid.
Anyway, its not long now!
Winter Is Coming: Very interesting info about filming in Scotland. I remember there were some initial reports this past spring that Scotland would be an alternate filming location, similar to Morocco, but we hadn’t heard anything official so I assumed that meant that it was ruled out. Seems like that might not be the case. I’m not too familiar with Scotland’s geography, does it snow there in Oct? If so, this might be where they will film some of the exterior scenes. Especially the opening prologue scene.
Also, it looks like there will be at least some Game of Thrones-specific set construction and that they won’t be using strictly Your Highness sets, as many had originally speculated. Whether it means they will be doing alterations to existing Highness sets or constructing their own, completely new sets remains to be seen.
