Game of Thrones (Season 5 episode 8)
Hardhome sequence

Character rigs for GoT season 5 “Hardhome” episode.  I had the opportunity to rig a collection of undead army’s White Walkers as well as some Wildlings for the battle sequence at the free folk village. They were mainly body rigs with just a basic set of controlers for the faces. The most difficult part of the project was not on the technical side but more on the timing one since the rigs needed to be built in very short period of time. Unfortunately, don’t have permission for showing how the rigs work or anything else related with the process, but you can take a look at this official VFX breakdown from HBO.

Great to see everything put together in the final episode though, one of the best in the series!
