Making Game of Thrones has had a couple of interesting updates over the past week, detailing some of the behind the scenes work that has gone into these most recent episodes. First up, this post which includes a video of the making of the bear fight scene.
And then there was Cat Taylor’s post from last week, which includes a bunch of behind-the-scene nuggets from episodes 4-6 of season 3. Here is a sample:
In Westeros, the Wall and King’s Landing are thousands of miles away from each other, but things are a little different in the real world. In Belfast, you’ll find the Wall sandwiched between the Throne Room and parts of the Red Keep, and more specifically Tywin’s new chamber, where Cersei confronts her father.
When you see Tywin writing a number of scrolls in his chamber, keep this in mind: each and every scroll, document or map that you see on screen throughout all the episodes, is accurate to the story and where we are in the series. The contents of each of the letters are directly relevant to what’s happening on screen or where we are in the series.
Winter Is Coming: Cool stuff. I’m quite blown away by the quality of the sets this season. Compare Tywin’s chamber to Ned’s chamber from season one. The difference is staggering.
