See exactly what Game Of Thrones' visual effects artists did to create the impressive look of season four...

In all the praise for screenwriters, directors and cast, the panoply of technical genius that goes in to making a season of HBO's Game Of Thrones risks going unmentioned. Visual effects houses like Mackevision, the one showcasing their work on the series below, conjure backdrops and entire landscapes using skill, physics, and niftily applied design software.

The sea on which the boat carrying Arya to Braavos travelled in the season four finale? Conjured. The Red Keep backdrop to The Mountain and The Red Viper's trial-by-combat? Conjured. The armies behind Ramsay Snow and Roose Bolton's father-son chat? Conjured, conjured, conjured.

In salute to those often undersung talents then, enjoy just one showreel of just some of the hugely impressive visual effects that go in to making your favourite TV show...
