Making Game of Thrones: Numbers, Numbers, Numbers

Making Game of Thrones has a fun update with a lot of data about things both mundane and bizzare related to the production of Game of Thrones. It’s primarily focused on this season, but some numbers from past seasons do slip in…

Some of the ones we found more interesting were the amount of fur and leather used by the production (over 30,000 square feet!) and the number of frames shot to date (from October 5th, minus whatever was being shot in Croatia at the time ... which amounts to roughly 260 hours of footage, which would have to be sifted through, cut, and edited down to create not quite 10 hours of footage. And that’s with seven weeks of filming left, so one images there’d be even more footage by the time all is said and done.

The technical feat of organizing and doing all that is certainly a good reason why the show has won so many plaudits on the technical side. Can’t quite even imagine the logistics of it all…
