The makers of “Game of Thrones” have to be rather busy at the moment. Why? Let’s just say that for the first time really all season long, they are going to have three different filming units in different places all at the same time. We know that one of them is going to be in Northern Ireland, and one in Morocco for certain; so is it possible that the third unit will be stationed in Iceland? That’s our primary guess, though we also know that most of the actual filming is not slated to take place until next month, at least per some recent reports.
This new information about the producers’ great multitasking skills was first posted by Cat Taylor in her official Making of Game of Thrones blog, where she detailed even some of the code names that some of the workers in production are using for the project:
“Today is the first day of Game of Thrones becoming a three-unit show. That means that, for the next two weeks, on any given day, there could be three directors, three DOPs and three sets of crew all filming at different locations simultaneously. The name of our new unit, joining the ranks of WOLF and DRAGON? … RAVEN.”
You could certainly also call the next few weeks the home stretch for the series, which first started filming back in July for the episodes premiering on Sunday, March 31. There is only a short time left to get everything together, and then the show is off to the post-production phase for a few months to get everything prepared for when the adventure in Westeros begins again.
Is there any one particular storyline, or a setting being used at the moment, that you are the most excited to see?
