Watch The Amazing VFX Behind The White Walkers, Wights And Dragons Of ‘Game Of Thrones’

The epic battles of Game of Thrones season 7 seem so real except for one small problem: White Walkers, Wights and dragons don’t actually exist. Oh yeah, and filming vast battle scenes in blizzard conditions is a bit tough. So instead of filming on location in fictional worlds with fictional monsters, producers must rely on VFX artists.

El Ranchito Imagen Digital is just one of the many VFX firms that has contributed to Game of Thrones and has done so since season 5. Check out their effects reel from season 7 below and be amazed at how a bunch of bearded dudes wearing silly costumes in front of a green screen becomes the epic battle scenes that play on TV.
