Dave & Dan,

Have you guys selected a Director of Photography yet? Also, any word on what house(s) will be doing effects, building props and models and such?

Good question Brude, very important for the show! It would be awesome if they could get a kick ass DP,

Ellen Kuras anyone? http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0475578/ She used to be my neighbor, very nice and soooo talented.

And the effects need to be realistic.

You know her? Very cool. She's one of the best in the biz! "Summer of Sam" and "Eternal Sunshine" are probably my two favorites of her work (I just rewatched "Eternal Sunshine" last night for like the 20th time). Not to many female DP's out there, but she's great.

I knew her when she was my neighbor years ago. She's very nice and we talked alot about film (I worked in the industry too), but it was hard to stay in touch. There are too few female DP's, aside from that she's incredibly talented and her style of gritty realism I think would go well with the series.

From now on, we'll be affectionately referring to our favorite tormented man as Sandor 'Woof-Woof' Clegane. (Makes him sound like a professional wrestler!)

Re: Director of Photography,

I think I posted elsewhere that Oliver Bokelberg seems to be selected as the Director of Photography for the pilot. He's collaborated with McCarthy before on The Station Agent and The Visitor. This is of July 20, there was a news item about it.

Ran, I saw that post of yours but as far as I could tell the article didn't mention anything about Bokelberg working on Thrones. Just mentioned that he had lensed McCarthy's previous two directorial projects. Would love it if it was true though. Maybe David & Dan could confirm.

And I'm guessing the Hound as well. Do we think it will be a known or unknown actor?

EDIT: Or maybe the Baja Men are doing the soundtrack????

Wow. You're absolutely right. I don't know how I misread that article so completely.... oh, I see. I first came across this, searched for the source report that they were using for that tidbit, and for whatever reason that very strange article just points out Bokelberg worked twice with McCarthy without really explaining why it's noting that. With the blog post in mind, I just didn't parse the actual article closely enough.

Hrm, hrm. Well, nothing for it but to ask someone in the know.

Re: Director of Photography,

I responded about that in another thread some days back, and I agree with HalfHand. The first article that mentions him only says that he worked with McCarthy on his two movies, but doesn't say he was selected. Another article/blog entry seems to have picked up on that and assumed it meant he was the DP.

He may yet be the DP because of his connection to McCarthy, but I don't think the two articles that mention him are proper confirmation - they are both not serious sources for such information.

Edit: here's the post were I responded about that.

Gotten rid of that article for now, while I see if an e-mail does any wonders, or perhaps David and Dan would be so kind as to end our suspense. ;)

Great! Hopeful your email can turn up something more than just hints and clues about who the DP might be. ;)

Dingo petitions Forculus, a Roman god of doors. "Please let it be that Ray Stevenson will play The Hound. Do that, and I will kill for you a fine white lamb. Or failing that--if I couldn't get a good one at a decent price--then six pigeons."

I'll sacrifice a cat to the Dark One if Ray Stevenson is the Hound.
