Game of Thrones Season 5 Behind the Scene
Game of Thrones Season 5 is here, there will be a lot of changes regarding the characters, and the scenes will be more interesting based on the full trailer that already launched before. However, if we talk about the scenes, the location and the costs should not be forgotten because they also the elements that make the Game of Thrones successful, because at the same time the location and the casts make the Westeros be more alive and the fans can enjoy watching the series. Even though, when it comes to the book and also the series, imagination between fans is a different one to another, but the locations of Game of Thrones from three previous seasons seem can impress the fans.
Just like everyone knows, Game of Thrones Season 5 takes place in three different locations: Croatia, Iceland, and Ireland, where the casts and the crews visit those locations at the same time. Moreover, thecasts and the crews are separated into two shooting units that are running at the same time. Robbie Boake, the location manager of Game of Thrones Season 5, speaks about Game of Thrones behind the scene and admits that shooting in separate units is the hard thing to do and it needs the strong bond to keep them together and stay with the standard that has already applied from the previous seasons. Chris Newman (producer) and his team are doing the magnificent job regarding unite all the casts and crews as one, he also added.
Croatia, Iceland, and Ireland are the names of the locations that have been chosen for shooting because, said Boake, there can be found the variations of the landscape. Moreover, especially in Ireland, there are many landscapes in that place that are suitable for the series. We can find beautiful hills, the Antrim coast, and the other landscapes that can be reached only for 1 hour from Belfast. Boake explained; there are scenes that need different ambience, feelings, and temperature because they will be adjusted to the events that are going to be shot. Moreover, Game of Thrones Season 5 episode 1 storyline is available in different geographies and the crews usually build something, for instance, is a castle, to complement the locations. And after they done with the building, the also need to clean it up as if there was no shooting activities. However, in Ireland, these problems can be solved because Ireland is a really good place to watch game of thrones online.
Even though the locations seem to be wonderful, but the process of movement from one location to the others is still complicated. Boake said that the casts and crews move with many accessories and they use the military-spec tracks and fields to support the process.
Besides location, battle and event scenes need many people. For this term, the word “many” can reach up to 200 people in those scenes. While the shooting is being paused for the other scene, these people still have to be comfortable; it also would be harder if all of them have to wear the heavy armors for the battle scene. For Boake, it is a challenge for the crews to make this person feel warm and pleasant with providing them food and shelter if the weather is raining.
