Season 3: In Production video to hit HBO On Demand on Dec. 3
By Winter Is Coming on in Media, News.

HBO has updated their online schedule and, lo and behold, a S3: In Production video has appeared in the On Demand section. It is slated to hit HBO On Demand beginning December 3. However, these things usually air on the main network the day before they hit On Demand, so it seems a good bet that this would air on Dec. 2, prior to the season finale of Boardwalk Empire. We’ve reached out to HBO for confirmation of that.

Last year, the In Production video was our first peek at season two and it looks as if this year will follow suit. Unfortunately, that means we may have to wait until January for a full-blown trailer.

Winter Is Coming: Thanks to Darquemode for the heads up on this. Y’know, I think I look forward to these videos even more than the trailers, since they usually give us better looks at the costumes and sets than the trailers do. Hopefully this one will include some glimpses of some new characters in costume, like Mance or Beric or the Blackfish. We have less than two weeks to find out!

    Re: Cat Taylor’s Iceland tweet that “It’s a BIG day today.”

    Think that means giants?

    Watson,

    I was thinking about that and have been trying to process how they might approach all the CG dependent things beyond the wall and if they spend the budget on something this year that would be a great place to put it–mammoths, giants, warging etc..

    but I wonder if they could use forced perspective and prosthetics because CGI people even if they are giants

    Direhound,

    I doubt the warging really costs them a lot to due, since it’s pretty much done by wolf vision. Fortunately, the mammoths and giants will probably only be in one episode, so they won’t cost a whole lot. That should save them some money for Beric’s sword, the dragons, and the battle on the Fist.

    Grijnwaald,

    I don’t know how you do that. I like more those glimpses that show what is happening behind scenes or production works than trailers.

    Cool!!!

    Can’t wait!

    But will it really not be until January that we get a trailer?
    I seem to remember that there was a trailer by Christmas last year…

    I hope we get a look at the characters WIC mentioned and also some new locations?
    Riverrun maybe?

    Somehow a woman is more interested in Boardwalk Empire now! Wonder why? LOLz. Can’t wait to see the new footage, an early Christmas gift from D&D. Thanks guys!

    I’m hoping our first location (assuming they follow last year’s format) will be Dublin concentrating on The Riverrun and maybe we get a glimpse of the new roles in costume!

    I’m quite excited to see the Blackfish in costume as well as intrigued to see how Tobias Menzies pulls off Edmure. I’ m not sure why, but I think seeing the Tullys is more likely than seeing the Brotherhood w/oBanners sadly, but I’m just as excited to see them.

    sunspear,

    POV shots are simple enough but I was thinking of the eagle or any other animals they plan on telling that story with if they need it to do very specific actions…

    Aegon the Conqueror,

    :)
    I should have most aired promos uploaded to YT in 1080p like last year. I don’t always catch them on the first airing (although I try for the ones I know about), but I’ll get it OnDemand, someone else will get it, or HBO will upload them…. eventually.

    Actually to be fair for some of the promotional videos have been on HBO.com or HBO’s YT account almost imediately after they air on HBO. They had the Date Tease up rig away. Maybe they are starting a new pattern of updating moe quickly than last year?

    The mighty hodor,

    It’s obviously not at the quality of GoT ;) But, this past Sunday’s episode (and this 3rd season as a whole) really seemed to find it’s feet. Great episode this week.

    They’ll put it up on HBO Go after it airs on the 2nd. Don’t worry.

    I just saw a funny HBO TV ad selling DVDs for BE, GoT and TB.

    It’s a little different that the one here at cinemablend.com.

    The ad has one worker/boss handing out HBO DVDs to co-workers/employees.
    He implies he’s giving one guy BE because he’s a drinker. The TB girl’s accused of inappropriate sexual behavior in the office, and the GoT guy is accused of incest. The one I saw, the GoT guy was accused to backstabbing in the office instead.

    The runtime of the video is 2 minutes.

    Anonymous,

    Cool, same as last year, then. It should give us a good idea about the season and its looks.

    The short tease with no footage reached one million views already, unbelievable.
