In today’s must read interview, Weiss and Benioff discuss Game of Thrones Season Two over at The Daily Beast.
A couple of excerpts:
What lessons did you learn from the first season—in terms of adaptation, breaking episodes, production, etc.—that you’ve taken on board for season two?
Weiss: In general, across the board, we learned the necessity of planning ahead with a show that strives to be ambitious without completely breaking the bank. We can’t afford to waste expensive shots, or shooting days, or ketchup. So we try to stay as far out ahead of everything as we can, we eat what we kill, and now it’s all smooth sailing!
Benioff: Whatever lessons we’ve learned from the first season are mitigated by the increased difficulty of the second season. We have more characters, more locations, more dragons. I wish we could say we’ve found a nice groove and life is easy now, but I still find myself waking up from anxiety nightmares at 4 in the morning.
