Orbiting Around Game of Thrones Storyboarder Will Simpson!

Back in January, I was lucky enough to attend Will Simpson’s event and exhibition at Orbital Comics in London. You can see some of those images here. But now the Orbiting Pod Podcast brings him right into our homes, audio-style just before the Game of Thrones premier this weekend. I don’t need to tell you that Will Simpson is seriously talented and has created much of the “feel” of the show, so listen up!

Bleeding Cool welcomes back The Orbiting Pod, the podcast of Orbital Comics in London.

They say:

Welcome to another special episode of The Orbiting Pod.

Back in January, we were fortunate enough to host an exhibition of the art of William Simpson, current storyboard & concept artist on HBO’s Game of Thrones.

During the run of the exhibition, Will was gracious enough to give us an hour of his time, and speak to Chris about his career: how he ended up working on Thrones, working with multiple directors, crossing the line, telephone directories, fan zines, colouring books and much more.

Game of Thrones Season 4 begins This Sunday on HBO/Sky Atlantic
