New Gallery Images and Production News

We’ve updated our gallery with images from the last two videos, with the usual commentary drawing from the books and from other, relevant information. But in the course of watching the Croatia video, a new bit of information slipped out.

To the right you can see director Alan Taylor, who directed “Baelor” and “Fire and Blood”, and whom we recently confirmed was directing four of the ten episodes…

... and something new: he’s now a co-executive producer on Game of Thrones!

An interesting revelation. This puts him on the same footing as GRRM, as far as “official” credits go, and suggests two things to us: if there are further seasons, he’s going to be leaving a major mark as a director in them (bearing in mind that he’ll certainly be busy this summer, when shooting on Thor 2 starts), and that he’ll have a good deal of input on the directiorial aspects of the show. His extensive experience as a director should be a boon for the production.
