Bringing dragons to the Tower of London: Projection at Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere

Game of Thrones season 5 premiere The Giggle Group 3

On Wednesday night we unleashed Daenerys’ Targaryen’s dragons into the heart of London, unveiling our animated projections onto the moat wall of the prestigious Tower of London for for the highly anticipated Game of Thrones season 5 world premiere.

After producing pre-visualisation for the Sky Events team in the Giggle studio we set about creating the spectacular with 3 weeks animation time and more than a couple long days and late nights. Our talented and hardworking team pulled out all the stops to make it an extraordinary event, while the animation was brought to life with incredible sound design (courtesy of SNK Studios) using the original sounds (“We’ve got the real dragon noises!”) from the show by Paula Fairfield.

The dragons greeted the cast, VIPs, guests and press as they acted as a fiery backdrop to the red carpet, flying the length of the Tower of London before setting the Game of Thrones logo alight. Almost 40 of the cast attended the event, the first Game of Thrones premiere held in Europe, so we snuck in some star gazing star stalking swooning acting talent appreciating in between dragon babysitting.

We are so pleased to have been asked to have been a part of this fantastic event and fulfilled a long standing dream to project onto the Tower of London. There was a lot of great coverage on the event and it was a pleasure to work with the brilliant Sky Events team again (check out the projection work we did for the Game of Thrones season 4 premiere here).
