Inside Game of Thrones’ VFX
For a long time, genre TV has had infamously mediocre, and sometime downright bad, special effects. While that’s undoubtedly shifting, and has been for the past decade, they generally still don’t compare to those of movies, whose multi-million dollar budgets and lengthy post-production schedules run circles around those in the fast-paced TV world.

This short video gives us a tiny peak into some of the effects of the show’s sixth season. Pretty cool, huh?
