‘Dracarys’ (Game of Thrones)
The intensity of Game of Thrones is just incredible, the characters and scenery are just stunning and that’s before we even get started on the dragons!
I have been asked a good number of times to take this on but back then I hadn’t had the chance to study it enough to do it justice. Well now that I am well and truly a massive fan I felt confident enough to go full on and create something dramatic and I am so pleased with the results.
As those who follow my work will know, I have always steered towards narratives that are driven by darkness and light and Game Of Thrones embodies this and some. Fire and ice, Summer and Winter, good and evil, it’s just perfect. As someone who has been lucky enough to have traveled into the Arctic Circle and who also has a love for the Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds the fact that so many scenes were filmed in the country was the pull on this piece to create the perfect backdrop. Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons play a key role within the scene as do others who you may not be able to see. This is a piece of complete contrast, from the heat of the sky against the frozen sections of the river that divides the landscape to the switch to the destructive nature of Viserion.
Music is a massive part in my work, from concept to the smallest details and there’s a message within the piece that links perfectly to the scene whilst simply happening to be playing whilst creating the foreground, it also links to a much earlier Storyteller piece, so over to you on that! I have loved every single minute (and there were a few!) of creating ‘Dracarys’ and I hope you love the end result as much as I do!
