Aegon of House Targaryen sets out on his brave and bloody conquest to defeat the seven reigning families of Westeros. An impossible feat were it not for Aegon's possession of feared and ferocious dragons.
Interesting for what it is and is good to see the behind the scene power, but pretty superficial as a film
I'm pretty keen to avoid spoilers so I didn't watch this feature until after I had already finished season 5. As a result, the news of the scale of the show was not really news, even if it is something that this film keeps hitting home throughout. Capturing work in Spain, Croatia, and Norn Iron, the day itself is not particularly fascinating in terms of events in that working period, but rather just as a taste of the norm. As such we see the specific challenges of any one shoot, the logistics of the wider project, and the sheer scale of two units shooting material that all has to match across three different countries (on this occasion – more on others).
It is interesting to see the faces behind the cameras, and take this time to appreciate their work. The film doesn't spend too long with the actual cast (we only see a couple of them) but rather the behind the scenes people – not so much your jobbing crew, but producers and some other specific roles. As such it is quite interesting but never really more than a superficial featurette. We hear about stresses but never really see them, although the organizational challenge of schedules and logistics is clear just from this brief look. Not the most fascinating of pieces as a result, but interesting for what it is.
