'Game of Thrones' Season 4 VFX reel validates Emmy nominations


"Game of Thrones" led the pack of the nominations for the 66th annual Primetime Emmys with a total of 19 nods. While the Outstanding Drama Series and acting nominations have earned the most buzz, a new reel showing the VFX for Season 4 proves why the HBO series earned so much technical Emmy recognition.

The above video shows off the creation of Braavos, Meereen and many of the sea shots from Season 4. The VFX reel makes the transformation of green screen and outdoor sets into the lands of Westeros and Essos look simple, but the visual effects truly are phenomenal.
