We have already shown you more than once what movies would look like without visual effects. After all, now no worthwhile movie comes to the screen without first going through the hands of CGI masters.
To assess the scale of the work of 3D graphics specialists, we suggest taking a look at a fresh batch of raw footage from "Game of Thrones" - one of the most expensive TV series in history.
This is what the scene where Tormund climbed the wall actually looked like
And with one mouse movement, the green screen turns into snow
The King of the Night and his army also did not have to freeze in a snowstorm
You didn't think that a wild wolf was taken and released like that, did you?
Step-by-step creation of the army and buildings digitally…
And we saved money on extras
Now you realize that the snowy mountain behind Jon Snow was not real
Do you remember the scene with the severed part of the white walker brought to Cersei?
Of course, for scenes with dragons, you have to tinker
This is how Daenerys saddles dragons on set.
In most cases, the actors have to look into the void, or rather at the blue screen
And play on a green background…
And armies are being recreated digitally
Details are being added step by step before your eyes…
Now you can see the reflection in the water…
A city appeared…
For scenes with giants, the background is removed separately…
and separately the actors themselves
As a result, a full-fledged frame is obtained
How special effects were created for the final season, you can see in the official video from HBO
