Today, HBO has launched a new series of animated shorts called backstories that illustrate personal stories behind the scenes of his shows Game of thrones, Barryand Precarious. The first of them, drawn from a story told by Game of thrones David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, is pretty wild. It's about how the actor Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo in the series and starred in Aquaman's DC Universe films, put Benioff to the Playing hospital "The game of slap."
In the video, Benioff explains his logic to confront a notoriously strong man in a physical fight against pain: "I will challenge the Khal because if I beat the Khal, I am the Khal." apparently also involved, though animators Ivan Dixon and Greg Sharp are preparing the scene with precision.) The following is a surreal story of Momoa's competitiveness and Benioff's inability to back off, and that's all there is to it. is a hoot – especially considering how the animators decide to describe what is happening to Benioff.
The other two initial courts of backstories the series are less painful but even more animated. In "Interim Class" Barry Co-creator Alec Berg explains how the painful actor class gave him the idea to push his own actors further. Animators Christy Karacas and Simon Wilches entrust this relatively trivial story to the world of Bizarro. Berg and co-creator Bill Hader turn into two-dimensional characters to slip into theaters and sneak into classrooms. False fish-eye lenses give the POV camera a forced and terrifying look.
In "Becoming Molly" Precarious& # 39; S Yvonne Orji explained the moment when she decided to do comedy: because she could find no other talent to present on a Miss Nigeria page in America, and she heard the voice of God telling her that She was funny (and had nothing else). This one, made by animators Carl Jones and Brian Ash, is a particularly elegant, colorful and visually wild piece, which turns Orji into a huge pencil-haired head on Garnet's Steven Universe. This sends him on a quick journey of insecurity to comic success to get the Precarious of the creator Issa Rae to meet the person of the real world with whom she played.
A spokesman for HBO said the animated series would continue with a HBO short film screening on the network's social media channels and the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
