Cinematographer Robert McLachlan joins the “Game of Thrones” team

Next season's finale episodes of the widely popular HBO series "Game of Thrones" marks the professional reunion of one of Canada's brightest cinematographers and visionary director David Nutter.
Vancouver based Cinematographer Robert McLachlan is set to reunite professionally with Nutter in the role of Director of Photography for the two finale episodes of the third season of the "Game of Throne" series. The episodes are expected to be the biggest and most spectacular to-date for the show, which is a fantasy television adaptation of George R. R. Martin's series of books, titled A Game of Thrones. Filming will take place this summer and fall in Ireland, Croatia and Morocco. The episodes will air on the HBO network next year.
This project brings McLachlan and Nutter back working together, after previously collaborating on the formative award winning episodes of Chris Carter’s television series “Millennium” in the late 90’s--where McLachlan’s influential, groundbreaking, moody, atmospheric visuals gained him widespread recognition and numerous awards. Following “Millennium”, McLachlan shifted from television to feature films. Nutter has since gone on to become TV’s most successful pilot director ever.
“I am really excited about working with David again. We have very similar instincts and aesthetics. And we both like to push the envelope every way we can," says Robert. "We also like to keep up a blistering pace. It keeps us all on our toes. I love it.”
McLachlan is relatively unique among cinematographers in his ability to shift from the small to big screen. Recently, photographing over a dozen major feature films (many of them abroad—including Dragonball Evolution in Mexico, The Golden Compass 2nd unit, in England and Cursed in Los Angeles), McLachlan returned to television. Most recently, he worked on the action adventure series “Human Target” and the current season of “The Secret Circle”.
He attributes his ability to create epic, big screen visuals and yet still maintain the unrelenting TV pace to nothing short of experience. “After countless documentaries and commercials, 350 episodes of TV, two dozen movies for television and all or large parts of another two dozen features, it’s way passed being instinctive. The more I do the more I love it.”
