Nice! And after season five, you'll have to do a new version that includes Dorne.

Re: Game of Thones: Opening Credits Extended

The credits for season 1-4 is up.

I must say let my poetic license stand in its creation. Some locations only go to certain places and I had to improvise. I should still call it seamless due to the music though. I used all four versions of the main theme song, season 1 and 3 in its entirety and the reprise of seasons 2 and 4. They each have minor differences if you listen closely.

Re: Game of Thones: Opening Credits Extended

There was a tearing in the song, which I edited out. Here's the new version.

Re: Game of Thones: Opening Credits Extended

Great work, once again. My family gets so annoyed that I insist on watching the credits every time the show comes on, but I love the music and the imagery, especially when a new location pops up.

The credits are like the appetizer, they really get you ready for the experience.

Re: Game of Thones: Opening Credits Extended

IIRC, when I was doing research on how the credits were done (I was initially convinced this world was in a Dyson Sphere the way it was represented as concave rather than convex, as one would expect), the map was supposed to be used for cut-scenes in between location scenes, to let the audience know where they were going to next. At some point they decided that all the little map scenes should be included in the beginning as the full intro.

I've noticed, however, that in many of the recent intros, we've been seeing locations being shown that never appear in that particular episode. For example, we've recently seen shots of Moat Cailin and the Dreadfort, but there has been nothing shown of the Boltons. Inversely, in the episodes featuring Sansa and Littlefinger, the Eyrie animation was never shown in the intro. I do always look forward to seeing the new locations. I particularly love the continuosly rolling coins into the Iron Bank of Braavos in the most recent eps.

Hopefully we will get Dorme in there next season.

very good but the opening credits vary on quite a regular basis depending on the locations featured in any particular episode
Or without any logical reason - they had Moat Cailin and Braavos in a bunch of episodes in season 4 that they were not in, and they never had Eyrie, which was in several episodes. And they didn't even need to make a new animation, the Eyrie was in season 1.

The Boltons were in three episodes in the entire season, but Dreadfort or Moat Cailin were in every episode.

I suspect Oldtown will be saved for season 6.

Sure. That doesn't somehow make the statement that "there has been nothing shown of the Boltons" any more correct, which was all my post addressed. Additionally, saying the "Boltons were in three episodes in the entire season" isn't saying much when the "entire season" is only 10 episodes. They're in about a third of it, which is actually quite a bit considering all the story threads the show covers.

Also, I don't think there's ever been a consistent 1-to-1 matching of locations in the title sequence to ones depicted in the episode (not including the big three). bbjeg would probably know better, as I'm sure he's had to watch most of them to put these sequences together.

Re: Game of Thones: Opening Credits Extended

My mistake - I should have been more clear - I did mention "recently" in that sentence but that should likely have been put at the end of the sentence, with the implication that we have seen nothing of them since the final short scene where Roose elevates Ramsey to natural status by King's degree, yet the two locations continued to be shown several episodes after in the intro. Apologies for the confusion.
