Modern CGI is strange. Sure, you can spot it in obvious places. If there's a ruddy big dinosaur or a skeleton warlord, you can be pretty sure it's CGI. But nowadays, CGI is being used in ways you could never possibly spot unless you were in the business. This Game of Thrones video proves that fact [WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD].

I mean bloody hell. Ygritte wasn't actually firing arrows from her bow! She was just pretending. That completely blew my mind. I could understand adding fire to the arrows, but no arrows at all? That really blew my mind.

I guess it makes sense. Probably harder to add CGI to a moving object so why not just create the moving object.

But yeah, this is crazy. Well worth watching.
