“I just need to tell you – hang it on the seat, because it will become special.”
Director David Nate gives you some of the most representative moments of power games in a low-key way, from the red wedding to the shame of Cersei Lannister to Johnson’s “death”.
Fortunately, he was also responsible for the eighth and final season of the show, which finally announced that it would be broadcast in April next year. After the announcement, Nutter participated in Reddit’s power game subreddit Fast AMA, where he shared his experience in the tutorial series and provided some fans with the climax they could expect most from TV.
The eighth season will be “red wedding” level shocking.
One of the key questions Nutter was asked revolved around his experience of guiding Castamere Rain, arguably the most memorable episode in the seven series that led to this. “I don’t know the pressure I’m under, except that I always put myself under pressure to make it better,” he said. “The more times I enter the project, the more pressure I realize.
“For some of the main characters, this is one of the final moments of the series. I just want to make it better and live up to the books. One of the most interesting things that surprised me most was responding to the audience – YouTube videos showed that people responded well to what they were watching, because I thought I had succeeded. ”
But will anything in the eighth quarter compete with the shock and awe of the red wedding? “Compared to the red wedding in season 8, I just need to tell you – hang on the seat, because it’s going to be special,” he said.
More Obama’s favorite will be complacent.
He explained that one of Nutter’s coolest experiences in the game of power was meeting President Barack Obama shortly after Jon Snow’s fate was left on a huge cliff at the end of the fifth season, and then answering questions about the fate of President’s favorite Night. Keep watch. Nutter famously told Obama that Snow was a “fallen man, not a dead man” – but he insisted that he told him in good faith.
“I did not lie to the president about the death of Jon Snow. I met Barack Obama in 2015. Of course, the DNC people are all their loyal fans. I met him at the dinner party. Some of them told him I was there, he introduced me and so on. The President grabbed my shoulder with his left hand, shook hands, and looked at me and said,’You didn’t kill Jon Snow. Did you do that? And I said he was dead, not dead. What matters to me is that I do not want to read after the fifth season.
“I am basically guiding the fifth quarter, that’s all. I don’t want to know what will happen next as fans of the program. So I didn’t lie to the president, but of course when they came out and survived with him next year, I was worried that I would be audited or something of that nature and get off to Guantanamo, but I did survive and that was a good thing. We laughed and I had the chance to meet him. Well, we are very happy about this situation.
“One thing he told me was that he said,” David, you killed my favorite character. So I hope it’s not over. “
The eighth season will be very long.
There has been a lot of speculation about how long each episode will last this season, and many even suggest that each episode may be the length of the movie. Although Nutter did not directly confirm this, he did say that the size and scope of the series would cover all the stories appropriately and give the program the right delivery. It makes sense to consider that one of the “climax wars” in the series took nearly two months to shoot.
“I think the eighth season will be over 60 minutes. They will dance around bigger numbers, I know this is positive, “Nutter said.
The security around shooting is very intense.
The last season of “Game of Power” is probably the most sought-after information in any series ever produced. Therefore, Nutter said that extensive measures have been taken to prevent leakage. “The eighth season is a very compact ship,” he wrote. In many things, watching is limited. There are not many papers, just like none. Without printing scripts, we only use iPad and something of that nature. ”
He also told a similar story during the fifth season of Cersei’s humiliating walk, saying: “This is twice as much as our body – I always thought someone would get a picture of this reason, Dubrovnik was a fairly open place – all kinds of angles to get photos, but nobody did, and they put it in the right place. All this money was spent on safety, and we took off from the chin of the chin. “
