HBO has released a new Game of Thrones production video, focusing on Art Direction,
only available on the HBO App (iOS, Android). Downloading HBO’s application is free, if you haven’t already downloaded it! The short clip includes interviews with Gemma Jackson (Production Designer), Frank Walsh (Art Director) and Tina Jones (Set Decorator). The production design for season two is looking fantastic so far.
In the Art Direction clip, we get glimpses of:
- A gold-and-green beautifully decorated tent, presumably Renly’s
- Joffrey’s red pavilion atop city walls, as seen in previous Dubrovnik production footage. Sketches of the King’s Landing streets and walls are also included.
- the streets of Qarth, with Jorah Mormont, and views of the Qartheen people and birds. (Qarth is going to be incredible eye candy this season!)
- a rough snowy house made with logs. I believe this to be Craster’s home. An actor is visible near the door, but the film’s too blurry and dark to tell who it is. Maybe Craster himself?
- Winterfell’s courtyard
- the courtyard and ruinous walls of Harrenhal, with Tywin Lannister riding into the yard. There’s also a production sketch of the walls shown.
- Theon and the Drowned Priest meeting on the shore at Pyke
- Dragonstone, briefly. Also some small horned skulls are shown later – other wildlife, or the smaller dragons’ skulls, I’m not certain.
Fury: The video is short but has a lot of fresh footage. The set decoration is even more detailed than last season, which I’m really excited about. Check out the clip if you have access to the HBO app.
Hopefully the video will be online in the near future and available to everyone at that point.
UPDATE: Thanks to @wabawanga for providing us with screencaps from the vid. I’ve embedded a few of the most revealing shots below, the rest I’ve posted to our Tumblr.
UPDATE 2: The video is now available online at the Making Game of Thrones blog.
