MM6 Music, Costumes, & Cinematography

The Largest Maester Monthly yet, we bring you our July ‘17 highlights of r/asoiaf, as well as massive discussion on Game of Throne’s Music, Costumes, and Cinematography!

Maester Monthly is the r/asoiaf “modcast” about you for you, covering the hottest topics of the past month. This episode features…

  • Subreddit Highlights: Our favorite stuff from July of 2017
  • Game of Thrones Music Sam runs us through Ramin Djawadi’s famous GoT Music. Why are the motifs like what they are? How have they transformed? Which ones work masterfully? Which ones come up short?
  • Game of Thrones Costumes Walda and Isobel break down the Emmy winning costumes of Michele Clapton and how GoT costumes stand out above all the rest.
  • Game of Thrones Cinematography The crew goes through how GoT uses visual storytelling to enhance George RR Martin’s ASOIAF, and what makes the pages come to life.
