Game of Thrones: Inside the visual effects for “Battle of the Bastards”

If you haven’t watched Game of Thrones “Battle of the Bastards” yet, a) get your sh*t together and go watch it, and b) don’t read this post or watch the “Battle of the Bastards” visual effects video below.

Teaming up with Variety, the VFX team and showrunners for Game of Thrones have created a special behind-the-scenes look at what went into creating those “Battle of the Bastards” scenes (AKA why this show is so freaking expensive to make this show).

Don’t worry, those horses weren’t actually being slaughtered during the battle. Check out the video below to learn how the epic battle and Drogon’s fire breath were brought to life (spoiler alert: flame throwers).
