… is the CGI you never even notice.
Fire and Blood: There aren’t enough words of praise I can think to say. Simply fantastic. Give them the bloody Emmy already; the nominated team of Adam McInnes, Angela Barson, Lucy Ainsworth-Taylor, Raf Morant, Henry Badgett, Damien Mace, Stuart Brisdon, and Graham Hills have earned themselves a sweet little statue, as far as I’m concerned. They could face some competition by HBO’s own Boardwalk Empire (courtesy of Robert Stromberg, who, ironically, was signed on to do the VFX for the Game of Thrones‘ pilot) (along with our old friend Julia Frey); the VFX on Showtimes’ The Borgias looked plastic at times, and AMC’s The Walking Dead seemed to rely more heavily on makeup.
And none of them have dragons.
But award or no award—the greatest thank-you we can give them is right here. We’re the ones they aim to please. And we are entertained! Take a bow, ‘Bolt!
