"Game Of Thrones, an animated journey - #gotseason5 is coming."
This is a fan video (I suppose - but there seems to be a trend of these "fan" videos being covert studio promotions, so consider this a quasi-official teaser and you won't be far off, I think) made using Photoshop / After effects of the HBO drama "Game of Thrones." It covers everything up to date - which, incidentally, is kind of funny because it illustrates how little actual plot there really is to these shows, but that's neither here nor there.
If you are a fan, you require no explanation. If you are not a fan, you probably aren't interested anyway, but no prior knowledge is required to enjoy the video.
This was directed by BlackMeal and Baptiste Pagani. It tries to sum up all the major happenings from the first four seasons of Game of Thrones in under a minute. Obviously, these are spoilers for the TV show if you have not seen it. It is like the Cliff's notes for the show, but leaves out a lot of plot and deaths and other details.
An animation version of Game of Thrones in this style actually is not a bad idea. Since the show is such a success, I wouldn't discount the possibility of that happening some day after the original production goes off the air. It's been done before.
