UMass Seniors Recreate Game of Thrones Title Sequence for Thesis Project
A pair of students from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth have taken their love of Game of Thrones to another level.
According to the Boston Globe, Kate Dullea and Mathew Melo have recreated the opening title sequence of HBO’s hit fantasy drama for their senior thesis project.
In the clip, 3D reconstructions of various buildings on the university’s campus, such as the College of Visual and Performing Arts and the Foster Administration Building, can be seen rising from the ground on the map, subbing in for Westeros, Essos, and other locations in the GOT universe.
The students spent over a year planning the project, which took about four months of actual work to complete. They used a variety of animation and editing programs, including Adobe Photoshop, to make the almost shot-for-shot recreation of the opening credits.
“It’s probably safe to say we are obsessed with [the show],” Melo said in an email to the Globe.
While it will be a few days until Dullea and Melo find out their grades for the project, we have a feeling that they’re going to pass. Graduation is coming, after all.
