Game Of Thrones Season 3 Green Screen Ygritte (Rose Leslie)

Game of Thrones: The Complete Third Season is coming to Blu-ray/DVD Combo and DVD, as well as a limited-edition Blu-ray Dragon Box Set, on February 18, 2014. These sets are sure to be packed with bonus features, but it will be a long while until we get our hands on these.

In the meantime, you can enjoy a visual effects reel posted online by SpinVFX, the effects house that worked on some pivatol shots for Season 3 of Game Of Thrones, including the ice slide sequence when Jon Snow, Ygritte, and the Wildlings climb the Wall.

You can watch the nearly 4-minute video here below, which includes samples of these effects.

Here’s a sample of the photos that SpinVFX posted to their official website. These show Jojen Reed and Summer, Bran Stark’s direwolf, who were filmed separately and then put together for the sequence.

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Special Effects Reel Before and After

According to Spin, the company delivered to the HBO production over 200 shots for Season 3, including Mance Rayder’s Camp, the Direwolves compositing sequences in the Northern Forest, CG crows, the 3D Unsullied Army, the Twins matte painting, and The Wall 3D environment.

Jon Snow, Ygritte and the Wildlings climb the Wall, triggering a devastating ice slide. Comprised of over 80 shots, Spin created a 700′ ft wall, a couple miles in length (real world scale) that would hold up from any distance and any angle. Spin then simulated the entire ice slide event, shooting it from all cameras set up in the sequence that created a sense of scale and continuity over the sequence, playing out the action in real time.
