So let’s face it, HBO’s Game of Thrones kinda rocks, right? Honesty, with dragons, bastards, and horselords, what’s there not to love? So when we were approached to work on the trailer for the upcoming second season, we couldn’t resist.
With 3 days to air, HBO realized that they overlooked a big 21st century highway running through the most critical shot. With a tight deadline and a tighter budget, we were contacted to turn the stretch of asphalt into a snowy medieval path. The shot required a lot of roto and talented compositors to seamlessly layer the path into the scene. Working with artists in New York and Mumbai, Trace was able to work on a 24-hour schedule to deliver the final comp in just 2 days. HBO was thrilled with the final product and so were we.
