Dubrovnik Filming Continues

Filming for Game of Thrones in Dubrovnik has continued this week, and Mark Thomas of the Dubrovnik Times continues to deliver with his photo-filled reports on the production. This time, photos include a colloquy between executive producer Dan Weiss, Emmy-winner Peter Dinklage (yes, we’re officially appending Emmy-winner to every mention of Emmy-winner Peter Dinklage from now on… or at least until it gets old!), Jack Gleeson (Prince Joffrey), and Ian Beattie (Ser Meryn Trant).

The report notes that as many as 200 people are working on the production on a daily basis—including extras, stuntmen, and more—and that “more than a million Kuna” (That seems to be about USD $181000) is being paid to Croatian companies directly involved in the filming.

As to Northern Ireland? We’ve had several days of extras reporting they were taking part in a huge battle sequence, and this last couple of days it seems Liam Cunningham (playing Davos Seaworth) has been hinting at some interesting night shoots. The Neil Marshall-directed, George R.R. Martin-scripted “Blackwater” seems to be going forward smoothly, and so far the weather has been playing relatively nice after the gale winds that tore down a catering tent and caused early shut down of filming scenes involving Renly Baratheon’s camp.
