If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, you are eagerly awaiting the start of season four and looking for any details that you can find regarding the upcoming season. For fans of the HBO hit series that have read the books, you are aware of an important battle scene that will take place during season four and some details about the scene have been released.
Two years and two seasons on, we have returned to a location not far from the first and Neil [Marshall] is back at the helm once more. It’s still several weeks of night shoots, and being Belfast, there is still rain, but this time the fight Neil is navigating is not anywhere on the water. The planning of this battle has been taking place for months but unlike any other episode of Season 4, Neil’s will be filmed in a very concentrated burst. In fact, for many on the show – including most of the cast and the other directors, their work was complete before filming on this episode had even begun.
Throughout our shooting schedule, our crew and specialist departments are on their toes, but perhaps never more so than this season. This episode has kept the teams in stunts, armoury, prosthetics, SFX and VFX particularly busy, with camera tests and stunt rehearsals happening for several weeks beforehand.
As always, I can’t give too much away, but a little hint won’t hurt: Although this battle will not be laden with wildfire, I can say you’ve never seen an army like this on ‘Game of Thrones.’
Here is a look at the image that accompanied the details from behind the scenes of Game of Thrones season 4:
Shooting for the new season lasted a whopping 136 days before calling it a wrap, with shooting taking place in three different countries. Iceland, Croatia and Northern Ireland will all be in the backdrop when Game of Thrones returns to HBO.
While there is not an exact date for the premiere of Game of Thrones season 4, it is expected to debut sometime in the spring of 2014. In the meantime, you can catch up on previous seasons by checking out the HBO GO app.
