Watch how the epic Game of Thrones episode Battle of the Bastards was created using special effects

Published

on


The highly appreciated epic ninth episode of Game of Thrones season 6 Battle of the Bastards, gave us a marvellous representation of the Battle in the North between Ramsay Bolton and Jon Snow. The brilliantly created episode took a lot of efforts to execute, and the special effects that went into the creation of the battle is something notable, since it was the best battle we’ve seen on Game of Thrones so far.

Australian visual effects studio iLoura, released a video that shows how the battle was depicted with the wide usage of special effects, including Jon Snow’s body getting trapped beneath dead bodies, the clash of the cavalry on the battlefield, and most of the other parts of the battle that included more computer generated effects that made the episode so great to watch.

Check out the video below:

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau hopes Game of Thrones’ success won’t get in the way of House of The Dragon

More news keeps pouring in for Game of Thrones lovers as the prequel House of The Dragon is fast on track for its release in 2022. The recent developments taking place at various filming sites indicate the show might be here sooner than we expected. We had glimpses of some of the props that will be used as weapons and armors in the upcoming prequel in the first official teaser trailer, including the legendary Valyrian steel swords Blackfyre and Dark Sister. Recently, we got a few more close-up pics of the Targaryen armory straight from the set of House of The Dragon in Caceres, and the detailing looks quite impressive.

Some recent pictures posted by the Twitter account Portal House of The Dragon Brasil show several pictures of the armour from a closer distance. We can clearly see the Targaryan banner that was first spotted at Aldershot that gave rise to a lot of controversies online. Then we have a picture that shows several swords, some of the hilts look awfully similar to Blackfyre, and hence definitely belong to the Targaryens. another shot shows a close-up of several helmets, probably to be worn by the soldiers on the set.

House of The Dragon teaser trailer crosses 10 million views in 3 days!

Lights, Camera, and… Action! Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has begun filming in the Spanish castle of Trujillo. The shooting of the high-budget HBO fantasy was supposed to begin in the Portuguese stone city Monsanto from 26th this month, but has been postponed as an important crew member fell sick due to COVID-19 in Caceres. Several pictures from the set are already leaking out on social media platforms, as curious locals try to capture a sneak peek at the set. Fans have been speculating for a long time about who’s who in the upcoming prequel series, and we have the answer to most of them. Recently a few clips and pictures from the set of House of The Dragon in Trujillo were leaked, and we noticed some interesting developments taking place in some of them.

In a clip provided by Portal House of The Dragon Brasil, we can see Queen Alicent Hightower’s carriage being pulled off at a fast pace, and two Targaryen soldiers in high pursuit. While it might be just that they are simply escorting the queen, it is for the readers to speculate.

The clip also shows several other details of the set, such as the inside of King’s Landing.  A costumed character in long black robes seems to be inspecting the market, though we don’t know who it is.
