We all know that Game of Thrones isn’t REALLY filming in Westeros (I just found this out), but you may not realize the massive amount of VFX work that goes into the show that you never even notice. Obviously some things like dragons are fake (also just learned this), but half the backdrops of every scene you see are greenscreen. Fortunately the tech has evolved to the point where you can’t even tell.
You can see what I’m talking about in the VFX reel from season four above, and I will just assume that something, somewhere in there is a spoiler, so beware.
