A Social Game of Thrones

A friend of mine showed me this video a while ago, and I thought it was the coolest idea ever.

This video will make a lot more sense, and seem way cooler if you are a "Game of Thrones" fan as it is a parody of their amazing show intro(See Below). This video was made by the company Hootsuite which combines all of your social media apps into one single application. Hootsuite smartly uses pop culture to draw comparisons from a central item in the show known as The Throne.

I've always found that the Game of Thrones intro is one of the most impressive out there, and I always wonder how they managed to make it, but this is certainly not easier to do. This parody, while very similar to Game of Thrones was definitely no walk in the park to make. All of the keyframes and masks that had to be added to this is sheer insanity. What really draws my attention is the moving shadows and use of 3d space. These towers aren't rising but rather growing towards the camera. The use of the XYZ plain, and the moving camera angles really makes this an amazing animation!
