From Winter is Coming:
Yesterday I posted some images from Game of Thrones, the HBO adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire. It proved rather popular. So to that end, above is the behind-the-scenes video from which all those images were pulled by the lovely folk at Winter is Coming.
It’s great to see Martin so excited about the series (regardless of the fact that it’s a promo piece, Martin’s seems honestly impressed by what he’s seen on set. I also get hot and sweaty whenever I see Sean Bean do anything. I ruined my pants when he was talking about the television series. Dinklage has all of Tyrion’s charisma and charm; Jon looks great; Maisie Williams’ smirk is Arya. Just lovely to see some of these characters in motion.
A brief, but tantalizing look at some post-production footage from the film. Unlike the behind-the-scenes trailer, this footage better represents what the series will probably look like once it comes to television in 2011. It’s dark, moody and suited to the overall tone of A Song of Ice and Fire, but I hope it can also retain Martin’s touch for humour and light-heartedness. Can’t wait to see a proper full-length trailer.
