Game of Thrones first hit our TV screens back in April 2011.  Every year since we have seen each season launch treated as a highly anticipated event that is celebrated the world over.

 

As the new Game of Thrones season six fast approaches PR stunts are beginning to pop up from Sky Atlantic and HBO with surely more to come over the next month.

This week Sky Atlantic enlisted snow artist Simon Beck to create the Stark insignia on the French Alps in a rather epic fashion.  The giant piece of snow art took more than 13 hours and 64, 800 steps to make and features the Stark’s famous wolf insignia with the shows iconic tagline ‘Winter is Coming’ below it.

 

Take a look at the spectacular making of it here:

 

 

In a further move to promote the release of Game of Thrones season 5 to Blu-ray and DVD this month HBO have teamed up with chocolatiers Melt.  The work of art weighing 15kg and standing 55cm tall will be unveiled this Saturday 12th March at Selfridges.

After being assembled, scale by scale, the intricate chocolate dragons egg be on display until 4pm for selfie opportunities.

 

All this talk of Game of Thrones PR stunts has made us happily revisit the giant dragon skull  we made for GoT season three launch on Blinkbox.  The giant dragon skull which measured 40ft long, 8ft wide and 9ft tall, took 2 months to design, construct and paint.  It was all totally worth it though as the result was magnificent!

Once complete the skull was discovered by walkers and fossil hunters washed up  on Charmouth‘s Jurassic Coast in Dorset.

Following its discovery it then went on a tour of various locations around the UK finally ending up at the Blinkbox premiere screening at the Tower of London.
