As I said in the comments of our last filming update, I’m really liking the switch from Malta to Croatia. The Croatian press is all over this production. The only coverage we got from the Maltese press was when the crew screwed up that beach clean-up.
Today, a batch of new set photos have cropped up online, including what appears to be our first look at some Qartheen fashion. (No, it’s not the bare-breasted Qartheen gowns. I believe David & Dan have already said they will be cutting that aspect of their culture.) Croatian web site Slobodna Dalmacija has a report on filming at the Sorkočević mansion and it includes a bunch of new photos. The photos are of extras in both Dothraki and, what I’m guessing is, Qartheen armor (pictured right).
Meanwhile, in the same real-world city but on a different fictional continent, DubrovnikNet has some photos of a King’s Landing street. The report states that this is to be used for a “mob scene.” Book readers should know the one they’re talking about.
In addition, a slideshow of set photos from Northern Ireland has been uploaded to YouTube. Perhaps most interesting are the photos of a boat with a crowned stag at the prow, sitting in front of greenscreen. I think we can all guess what that will be used for.
Winter Is Coming: Keep up the good work Dubrovnik! I want to see some photos of some of the main actors in costume next.
