Each year comes the release of a visual effects reel showcasing some of the work done on HBO's acclaimed fantasy drama "Game of Thrones". The several minute montages show digital mattes, set extensions and elaborate creations that you may be surprised are actual effects. Visual effects house MackeVision have cut together a reel for the fourth season and you'll be surprised at just how elaborate and detailed some of these shots are.
In related news, author George R.R. Martin has a message for all those fans of the books who have expressed concern the 65-year-old might die prior to finishing his work. He tells Swiss newspaper Tagesanzeiger: "I find that question pretty offensive, people speculating about my death and my health. So f-ck you to those people."
