36 CINEMONTAGE / Q2 2017 by Mel Lambert portraits by Martin Cohen H BO's highly popular Game of Thrones TV series has demonstrated that audiences will tune in regularly for well- fashioned drama that incorporates outstanding post-production. With the seventh season kicking off July 16, the struggle for the Iron Throne continues as several noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros, while a forgotten race returns after being dormant for thousands of years. Premiering in 2011, the Emmy Award- winning drama stretches from the south, where heat breeds lust and intrigue, to the savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. And in the frozen north, a wall of ice protects the war-ravaged kingdom from dark forces that lie beyond. Reportedly, the new season will bring surprises to the kings and queens, liars and lords, and honest men who engage in this dance of power and ancestry, based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling fantasy novels. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss serve as the show's executive producers, with producer Greg Spence overseeing post-production. Currently the series is distributed to an audience of 25 million across Warg Howls, Dragon Purrs and White Walker Ice Cracks Welcome to the Soundscape of Westeros The sound crew for Game of Thrones: Paula Fairfield, left, Tim Kimmel, Onnalee Blank, Brad Katona, Brett Voss, Paul Bercovitch and Mathew Waters.
