One of the most stunning elements of the legendary HBO series, Game of Thrones, are its visual effects. El Ranchito was one of the companies in charge of creating the magic that surrounds this production, both for the challenge that was supposed to give life and credibility to some of its characters and for the setting and digital creation of some of its locations.

In this Special Session, those who were responsible for the production of the visual effects of the series will show how the transition and adaptation of the company has been, explaining the processes that have been carried out from the beginning to the end of the production. We will also see how they adjust the tools and resources according to the needs of the production.

You will be able to get first-hand knowledge about coordination challenges and demanding deadlines that marked the pace of work and the technical problems that have been found in the process. Humans, dragons, King of the Night, White Walkers... the seventh season left us wanting more after the exciting battle in the snow.

El Ranchito is a Spanish visual effects company for film, television and advertising that has participated in the postproduction of more than one hundred spots and more than one hundred films and television series, many of them for the international market. It has been awarded with 8 Goya Awards in the section of best special effects and five Visual Effects Society Award for Game of Thrones.

In recent years, due to the increase in the number of projects, El Ranchito has had to adapt to a new production model. It has gone from being a small company with a very small team, to having to coordinate different simultaneous projects and departments with dozens of artists.
