‘House Of The Dragon’, the GOT prequel now exclusively on HBO – cast portraits & motion by Robert ASCROFT c/o SEVERIN WENDELER

‘House of the Dragon’ is a prequel series to the epic fantasy novel ‘Game of Thrones’, based on George R. R. Martin’s novel series ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’. The spin-off is set around 200 years before the original series and tells the history of House Targaryen. Robert ASCROFT c/o SEVERIN WENDELER had the honor of photographing and filming the cast in the sacred throne room.

“Thank you to my Emmy magazine family for having me on board for this epic journey!” Robert Ascroft.

The plot of the series is based on the novel series ‘Fire and Blood: Rise and Fall of House Targaryen of Westeros’ by George R. R. Martin, which is written in the style of a historical chronicle and does not follow a typical novel storyline.

The series was filmed mainly in the United Kingdom, in Cornwall and London. Further filming locations included the Spanish town of Cáceres, the castle of Monsanto in Portugal, and Los Angeles. ‘House of the Dragon’ is the first production to be filmed in the converted Warner Bros. Leavesden Studios.

HBO : “Martin and Ryan Condal are co-creators of the series. Miguel Sapochnik and Condal are the showrunners as well as executive producers along with Martin, Sara Hess, Jocelyn Diaz, Vince Gerardis, and Ron Schmidt. Clare Kilner and Geeta Vasant Patel also direct the series. Greg Yaitanes is the director and co-executive producer. Game of Thrones and Westworld composer Ramin Djawadi wrote the score for the series.”

House of the Dragon stars Paddy Considine (HBO’s The Third Day and The Outsider), Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint (It’s a Sin, Doctor Who), Eve Best, Sonoya Mizuno, Fabien Frankel and Rhys Ifans. Also appearing in exciting roles are Milly Alcock, Bethany Antonia, Phoebe Campbell, Emily Carey, Harry Collett, Ryan Corr, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jefferson Hall, David Horovitch, Wil Johnson, John Macmillan, Graham McTavish, Ewan Mitchell, Theo Nate, Matthew Needham, Bill Paterson, Phia Saban, Gavin Spokes, and Savannah Steyn.

‘Litter & Glamour’ – new portraits by Jaap VLIEGENTHART c/o SEVERIN WENDELER for fastfood chain MC DONALD’S

McDonald’s Netherlands launched this major national campaign with the title ‘Litter & Glamour’ to raise awareness among its customers for the (proper) and consistent disposal of waste. Unfortunately, waste sorting and proper disposal are still not a given in the Netherlands.

“The restaurant chain wants to raise awareness among its guests with a positive approach and thus contribute to the fight against litter.” Jaap Vliegenthart.

The idea behind the campaign : For a short time, each of the 258 restaurants is equipped with a golden promotional waste bin. Guests who throw away their waste in it have a chance to win exclusive jewelry made entirely from litter. The executive agency was TBWANEBOKO Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The new ‘Litter & Glamour’ campaign is the continuation of the successful consumer campaigns ‘You Bin It, You Win It’ and ‘Trash Dance’, which McDonald’s started in the years 2020 and 2021. In 2022, there are a total of seven prize presentations, each with one winner per drawing. This gives guests the chance, for example, to win 14-carat gold jewelry, including a necklace, earrings, a pin or a ring. The jewelry is made from waste collected by McDonald’s.

“Together with our restaurant teams, we do everything we can every day to reduce our packaging material while making our packaging design more sustainable as well as adequately collecting and recycling. But we can’t do it without the help of our guests.” Stijn Mentrop, Director of Marketing & Communications at McDonald’s Netherlands.

By 2025, McDonalds wants 100 % of its product packaging to be made of renewable, recycled or certified materials. Moreover, McDonald’s Netherlands is working to increase the amount of recycled waste from 41 % to 90 % by 2025. The company is also looking into how the amount of packaging can be reduced to 30 %.
