Big Honcho Of House Of The Dragon Says Its Your Fault Episodes Where Extra Dark On Your TV
House of the Dragon executive producer Ryan Condal responds to criticisms that the show was too gloomy aesthetically, saying that a professionally calibrated television would assist.
Condal told Deadline after the House of the Dragon Season 1 conclusion that the creative team is aware that many viewers found the series difficult to follow due to visually gloomy parts. The director noted that the trouble with television is that, despite employing top-of-the-line technology, the final output is always tweaked by several distributors.
These networks "compress the file differently" and broadcast it in a variety of other formats, resulting in occasionally different settings. "You're also distributing it to tens of millions of various television sets, all of which have different technology, are calibrated differently, and are set up differently in different viewing situations," Condal explained. "It's nearly hard to account for all of those factors while producing a television show."
While the House of the Dragon chief tells fans that the files he worked with were "excellent," he also assures them that the creative team is aware that the lighting may need to be reviewed in future seasons. "We're aware since I heard the note. But I can tell you that it looked fantastic when we posted and distributed it "Condal said.
"It also looked wonderful on my properly calibrated television." Although it is too late to change the lighting in House of the Dragon Season 1, viewers may look forward to Season 2. HBO greenlit another Game of Thrones prequel episode before it ever aired, and the next part will continue the narrative of House Targaryen's fall from glory.
"As it stands, I am happy that we still have 10 hours per season to tell our stories," Martin wrote. "It will take four complete seasons of ten episodes each to do justice to the Dance of the Dragons, from start to finish." House of the Dragon is intended to end with the aforementioned civil war, which concludes in the annihilation of House Targaryen. House of the Dragon Season 1 is now available to watch on HBO Max. There is no set release date for Season 2.
