Behind the scenes of the epic Game of Thrones S7E4 Loot Train battle.

India, Aug. 8 --

When Daenerys Targaryen rode in on her fire-breathing dragon, burning the Lannister army to a crisp in Episode 4 of the ongoing season, it sure was a goosebumps-worthy moment as the Khaleesi's first battle cry in Westeros. The entire battle sequence, also called the Loot Train attack, was as epic a production stunt, as it looked in the final cut of the episode.

HBO has now released a new video detailing the production of the GoT Season 7, Episode 4 Loot Train Attack. The video shows how a massive production crew filled with stuntmen, pyrotechnics artists and some killer animators managed to pull-off the hair raising battle sequence which ends with Jamie Lannister drowning in a lake, weighed down by his heavy battle armour.

Some of the ultra cool production feats that the GoT team managed to pull off include - a scene where 20 men were set on fire simultaneously for 12 seconds, Danny (Emilia Clarke) riding a giant motion-based dragon simulator to fly in concert with the movements of the dragon, burning 27 wagons in a shot to perfectly sync with the dragon's fire-breathing attack, the use on an eco-friendly dye to for the charcoal burnt look of props, shooting with 8 cameras, the use of three different tracking vehicles, a special contraption to make the Dothrakis stand on their horses while attacking, and much more.

Besides showcasing the various production elements of the Loot Train sequence, HBO's behind the scenes video also features interviews with the cast of the show.
