Austrian Artist Hannes Sommer (who happens to have a really sick Instagram) recently posted a video of his pop-up book in which he illustrates every major death from “Game of Thrones.” This genre “Every Death” is a popular type of youtube video. Fans edit out the meat of the show and just show the deaths from the series, perhaps because some “Game of Thrones” fans are sado-masochists.
The pop-up book takes an impressive amount of work. Because well the series contains dozens upon dozens of major character deaths per season. The video contains some imaginative special effects to keep fans interested. He utilizes ink and even crushed tomatoes to create a blood spatter effect. He kills them off with handmaid effects, like ripping off their paper heads. Or at one point he lights some paper on fire.
Sommer doesn’t shy away from teasing the GoT writers’ for their ruthless decisions in who to kill off, like the controversial decision to burn pre-teen Shireen Baratheon at the stake. :/
Check out the video because there are still 46 days until we get to see the seventh season of “Game of Thrones.” And what else do you have to do for those 46 days? At least Watchers on the Wall reports that there will be an extended premier (59 minutes long). Perhaps if this trend continues, the episodes throughout this season will be quite long. Which means even more time for shoulder pads and over the top outfits.
Anyway, all that is needed next is every “Game of Thrones” boob depicted… Because let’s be honest, a pretty big part of “Game of Thrones” is the fantastical deaths and HBO style edgy sex scenes. Perhaps too x-rated for a fan youtube video though.
