Now you've caught up with every Game of Thrones episode ahead of the final season, it's time to go behind the scenes with the show's visual effects team. Over the last seven seasons, the VFX team has created increasingly dramatic and otherworldly yet eerily realistic shots, and now HBO is offering viewers insight into the work they do.
From the “Battle of the Bastards” to the death of Viserion, animators go into minute detail to bring George R.R. Martin's original ideas to the screen. The four-minute Inside Game of Thrones: A Story in Visual Effects video delves into their creative process, with input from VFX producer Steve Kullback and supervisor Joe Bauer.
It's worth a watch to get a sense of how these massive teams bring Game of Thrones' most ambitious shots to the screen. Plus, what is there to do while we wait for season eight?
Game of Thrones season eight premieres on HBO on April 14.
