Game of Thrones takes home three Visual Effects Awards
By Ours is the Fury on in Awards.

VESAwards season continues to roll along and after the 12th annual Visual Effects Society Awards on Wednesday, Game of Thrones now has a few more trophies to add to its collection.

The show was the big winner for television at the ceremony at the Beverly Hilton, taking home three awards, including:

  • Outstanding Visual Effects in a Broadcast Program, for “Valar Dohaeris”
  • Outstanding Created Environment in a Commercial or Broadcast Program, for “The Climb”
  • Outstanding Compositing in a Broadcast Program, for “The Climb”

Check out this video to see a sampling of the stellar VFX work created for season 3 of Game of Thrones:

Ours is the Fury: Some of the special effects work is so incredibly subtle and well-done that we don’t even notice it happening in a scene until it’s pointed out. Congratulations to the Game of Thrones team on the well-deserved wins!

    And Seven Devils by Florence & the Machine is still my most favorite GOT song EVER!. I could listen to that song all day long.

    Congratulations!! If the trailer and Foreshadowing featurette are any indication, then you-all are sure to repeat next year!

    Thank you so much for all you do to bring GRRM’s world alive!

    I am fairly certain that Ian White (who also plays the White Walker and Gregor Clegane in season 2) played the giant. The special effects came in by him making appear so big, just like the wolves.

    Why zero in on individual episodes?
    VFX-wise I was more impressed with the end of Episode 4, Drogon and all the long shot CGI multiplication of the Unsullied, particularly the final ‘helicopter’ shot of everything!

    Congrats!!!! And amazing job from all!! The sample video is amazing! Recently I mistakenly went to see “47Ronin” which reportedly cost about $175 million dollars to make , and the special effects, visual effects and production values were underwhelming… “Game Of Thrones” is miles ahead on that front!

    IMO GoT comes second to none as far as their visual effects and just awe inspiring landscapes and background visuals.

    I buy the bluray every year just to see that brighter and more crisp true 1080p definition because everything about GoT visually is just breathtaking.

    The CGI company had a lot to do with that and they have done an amazing job bringing this fantasy world to life.

    They deserve every award they get and then some…..
