When it comes to showing people burned alive, here’s why Game of Thrones keeps it old school
Even on the small screen, it can be terrifying to watch Game of Thrones' Mother of Dragons swoop down from the sky on the back of one of her terrible beasts that spits out a fountain of fire and bakes rows of soldiers alive Part of the reason why such dragon attacks are so dramatic during HBO's fantasy series has to do with the talents of the SFX staff and a commitment to keeping it old school, at least when it comes to fire.
In an interview with Business Insider, GoT stunt coordinator Rowley Irlam explained why the show prefers realism as opposed to using CGI for something like those attacks. “What you still get from a person that you won’t get from VFX is a human performance and their own take on something,” he said in the interview. “What we wanted to do is find the humanity of the situation. These are the human moments when you feel their suffering.”
