Melbourne, where one of Iloura’s offices is located, is an appealing destination for film makers as it offers cost effective facilities and options. The State Government of Victoria and the Australian Federal Government provide ample support to the industry through desirable financial incentives such as grants.

Being in such a favourable environment for the film industry, Iloura seizes the opportunity with both hands. The team quickly propelled into a leader in special effects. In 2016, Iloura won an Emmy Award for outstanding special effects for the popular HBO TV series Game of Thrones season six episode: “Battle of Bastards”. Its work on this particular episode is astonishing in both its scope and flawless realisation.

Iloura artists used a mix of VFX and hand-crafted animation techniques to realise the vision for pivotal battle in “Battle of Bastards”. It has engaged in onset supervision, look development, pre and post visualization for the productions as well as the finishing shots.

With the visual effects that Iloura created in this epic battle sequence, it is easy for viewers to get lost in the story unraveling before their eyes. It is so incredibly detailed that even the producer of the TV series had difficulties remembering and distinguishing what was shot in real life and what was added digitally.
