With a cast of hundreds, locations in multiple countries and nearly 1,900 visual effects shots, the group will go into detail in how they brought the lighting style to each new location, how they block and edit the show’s big turning points, how they blend practical photography with computer graphics and how postproduction handles the content that is distributed across all of HBO’s platforms.
