The series premiered on HBO within America on April 17, 2011, and concluded on May 19, 2019. It is based on the book “A song of ice and fire” by George Rr martin. Game of Thrones is more than castles or dragons or sword fighting. It’s about power. It’s about the struggle for the Iron Throne and therefore the seven kingdoms that include it. At first, you may find it vulgar, an excessive amount of fight involved, useless killings, supernatural elements shown. But after watching you’ll find a much better show. All the killings, all the nudity, all the action, everything else takes a back once you understand the storyline. the foremost intriguing show which will ever exist.
Game of Thrones is the story of nine noble families who fight for control over the land of Westerns, the twist comes when an ancient enemy returns after being dormant for millennia. It has a very engaging plot. Despite having many characters, it’s hard to remember all of them. However, they will definitely stay in your heart as they are well-developed and sometimes unpredictable. The script is tight and isn’t boring at all. Game of Thrones has changed the traditional definition of nudity and the budget spent on TV series can be much higher than movies as well.
This show has done the highest number of casting to date with the highest budget on the cast in the TV world. The casting is done on 3 bases like on the basis of the book, casting in which the book didn’t give much importance to but the show and the actors enhanced it wonderfully, and where actors did bad acting or that the script isn’t giving them much scope. It is difficult to track all the characters of GOT but book readers have found 2,103 characters in the books. However, in the GOT, there are 553 listed cast members.
Cinematography and Editing:
The editing and camera angles are awesome. One fine example is when Jon Snow stands alone facing Ramsey Bolton’s cavalry. his courage and ferocity are clearly depicted without any dialogue needed. Another great example is when the dragons begin a fire strafe. The CGI blends perfectly with the camera work. The editing of the scenes involving actors talking to each other is also excellent. VFX is more realistic.
Most of the GOT’s recurring sets (like the Iron Throne) are filmed at Paint Hall studios in Belfast. Other shooting locations of GOT are Northern Ireland and Iceland for scenes in the North, and for the south in Croatia and Spain.
Game of Thrones is popular for not only its opening song but also for the theme song for every kingdom that is popular for the Iron Throne. In fact, it is so popular that producers decided to organize live concerts for Game of Thrones Experience. Many awards from Primetime Emmy, ASCAP Awards, and a nomination for a Grammy is the proof that how nice is the music of Game of Thrones.
