It is the most successful series in the world: Game of Thrones. While the shooting of the 8th season is in full swing, we use the waiting time to look back on the battle at Frozen Lake. It's a battle of unbelievable proportions: Seven heroes and two dragons fight against thousands of ice zombies and the Night King, who ends up killing Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.
The end of the 7th season may have shocked many fans, but how do you turn a scene of this magnitude in icy cold weather? The makers of Game of Thrones have now demonstrated this in a 13-minute making-of.
The battle at Frozen Lake was filmed in two locations, in Iceland and Belfast, with hundreds of actors, with the days of shooting - at least in Iceland - mostly in deep darkness. The frozen lake that the spectators see in the 6th episode was artificially constructed without water: the lake was dug out with an excavator and concreted in Belfast so that a smooth ice sheet could be concreted on it.
And the dragons? The best thing you can do is take a look at the Making-of, because this is how the makers of Game of Thrones staged the two dragons of Daenerys Targaryen. Would you have thought that? We are looking forward to your opinion in the comments.
