Game of Thrones, Seasons 1 to 3

Role: On set data wrangler / Previs artist / Roto artist

Three seasons working on Game of Thrones has seen me for fill a number of roles in a number of countries.  My original role as one of a two man data wrangling team seen me work in the Uk, Ireland, Croatia and Iceland.  Although only credited as a data wrangler for the first two seasons i did complete other roles both in post and on set.  These included Roto scoping, season one and a small amount of Previs, seasons one and two.   Season three seen me progress to not only be charged data wrangling duties but also a position within the Previs team and at times a Lidar operator when required.  Perhaps one of the greatest achievements though was being entrusted with a small amount of set supervision opportunities.

 

I hope to show some breakdowns here once i have been given permission.

Spin VFX breakdown

 

I've included Spin VFX breakdown of their work on season 3.  As i'm not currently able to show my previs online this covers some shots i worked on.  Times of note are

 

1:42 for the giant shots.  I did the previs for these working closely with supervisor Joe Bauer to help plan the technical side of the shots.  Side note you can spot me running through the shot as a reference for the giants timing and scale.

 

0:00 Burning tents.  I did a lot of work on this shot  from previs to lidaring the set and data wrangle the shoot.

 

0:00 The ice wall climb.  This i data wrangled while Jabbar Raisani supervised.  This was a very  large scale set and proved quite a task.  However as you can see it was well worth it.

 

0:00 The top of the ice wall.  This i did previs and at one point was help to design the set to help accommodate the required shots with in the set buildings restriction.

 

This is only a small number of shots please contact me if you wish to see more.
