The shoot is reportedly taking place in the woods under Binevenagh Mountain. The area is popular with hikers thanks to its panoramic views. On a clear day the north coast and Scotland can be seen from the summit.
Only a few more episodes are left for season four of Game of Thrones, and already producers are working hard on finding additional filming locations for season five. The show is now scouting locations in Spain, specifically in the Andalusia region located in the south of the Iberian peninsula.
Major filming locations for the show through the first four seasons include – Northern Ireland, where it does most of its studio filming at Titanic Studios in Belfast, plus Iceland and Croatia, in addition to some special effects work in Hollywood. Dubrovnik, Croatia serves as the setting for King’s Landing, and multiple new locations were added in that country for season four.
Season 4 of the immensely popular series Game of Thrones has just officially started production in Northern Ireland. Units will also be filming in Iceland and Croatia later this month.
Filming in Croatia will take place in Dubrovnik, a location that the show has used since season 2 for the city of King’s Landing. They are slated to film from August 20th to September 20th, and then move to Split, a new location, on September 21st to October 10th. It is believed that the Diocletian Palace’s basement in the city centre will be used for a few days, then move to the village of Kils where a mountain fortress is located, as well as a nearby island.
In July HBO’s Game of Thrones will return to Paint Hall Studios in Belfast in Northern Ireland, where seasons one and two were filmed, to begin shooting their third season.
In addition to the studio, the show plans to utilize two new purpose-built 44,000 square-feet sound stages in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter, as well as the Linen Mill Film Studios in Banbridge, for additional filming.
As they continue prepping sets, they are also looking for thousands of extras to appear in the show.
