Local tech firm stars in Game of Thrones
Liège company Flying-Cam, holders of two technical Oscars, is now part of one of the most successful TV shows ever, thanks to its camera technology.
The company was called in by the producers of Game of Thrones to provide the technology for filming an ambitious aerial sequence in the Loot Train battle scene in season seven episode Eastwatch.
The Flying-Cam was used to give point-of-view shots seen from the back of one of the show’s dragons, according to a detailed plan worked out beforehand.
The company’s technology has previously been used in the film series of Harry Potter and Mission: Impossible, as well as the opening sequence of the James Bond film Skyfall.
