The premiere of “House of the Dragon” wastes very little time showing how different it is from the beginning of “Game of Thrones,” which opens with a scene where Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock) soars past. the sky above her dragon. Thankfully for all involved, the process of actually filming such scenes this time around was much easier than in the original show.
An extensive profile published by The Hollywood Reporter revealed how the production took a page out of the “Star Wars” books, using LED screens common in Stagecraft technology (also known as The Volume). While the cast is still stuck riding on the same “mundane” mechanical rigs, the addition of video walls that give performers a sense of the actual background of each shot has made the process enjoyable. much more. According to Emma D’Arcy, who will play the older Rhaenyra Targaryen in the following episodes of the series:
“From everything I’ve heard, it’s completely different from what everyone on ‘Thrones’ has to go through. I love it. It’s like going to Ikea and trying all the tricks in the kitchen.”
Actors involved in productions like “The Mandalorian” and “The Batman” by Matt Reeves have all said similar things about the new technology, which allows for realistic and visual effects to work side by side. to produce even more convincing results. It’s tempting to get more insight into how much of a difference it makes from a behind-the-scenes perspective.
A new episode of “House of the Dragon” airs on HBO every Sunday.
