The Animator Sings: The Rains of Castamere

  • PDF
DIRECTOR Aristarchos Papadaniel-web-got Inspired by HBO TV series Game of Thrones created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and the series of epic fantasy novels A Song of Ice and Fire by author George R.R. Martin, the director-animator Aristarchos Papadaniel created a short animated film, which acts as an "animated choreography of departures" based on the series’ song The Rains of Castamere composed by Ramin Djawadi.

The film has been made with the technique of rotoscope animation.

Emblematic scenes of the series have been chosen, allowing for a new cinematic approach combined with the specific song. In particular, in the second part of the song, with a small change in two verses· the interest refocuses from the proud Lord of Castamere -which reference to his face works symbolically- to the young Lord Tyrion and the fatal relationship with his tyrant father, Tywin.

Film creator Aristarchos Papadaniel launches the new Be there! Corfu Animation Festival programme, “Τhe Animator Sings” and sings a cappella his own awarded film.
