Another update to the Making Game of Thrones site today, this one in the form of a video. The video is a first in a series called “The Artisans” which will presumably give us a look at the different folks that have a hand in designing the look of the show. In this first video we hear from production designer Gemma Jackson who talks about “crafting the look of Westeros.”
Winter Is Coming: A great update today. Very cool to hear about Jackson’s methods for designing the look and feel of the show. As I said on Twitter, it is exciting to think what “very high standards” and “huge scales” mean to an Oscar-nominated production designer! The video also gave us glimpses of some of the sets, the most impressive of which, to me, was the tourney set. The river in the background, the banners lining the tourney grounds, the tents, the stands, it all looks great.
