fxpodcast #309: Game of Thrones: those crazy bastards...

This week we talk to Glenn Melenhorst VFX supervisor and Ineke Majoor, VFX producer at Iloura in Melbourne about their Emmy-nominated work on Game of Thrones "Battle of the Bastards".

Iloura does featured film and television episodic work, recent projects include Ted, The Great Gatsby, Ghostbusters and Mad Max: Fury Road, for which they received an Oscar nomination. Seth MacFarlane called Iloura’s work on Ted “the finest character animation I’ve ever seen on film."
