Anyway, we’ve got plenty of time to learn more about the sixth season of Game of Thrones over the next year. For now, why not take a look back at one of the more impressive elements of the fifth season: the visual effects. Some of the visual effects are merely scene extensions while others are used to create entire shots.

It’s no secret that the visual effects of feature films are usually vastly superior to that of television. The budget for feature films is infinitely bigger, and television shows have much less time to finish visual effects in post-production since they’re on a much tighter schedule and last much longer than movies.
However, when a show becomes successful, that means more money can be spent to make it look better and better, and in the case of Game of Thrones, things have clearly improved over five seasons. A new video explores the evolution of visual effects on the HBO fantasy series, and it’s not hard to see how much better they are now.
