Purdue senior gives 'Game of Thrones' a Boilermaker tribute

A video project has allowed Purdue senior Sam Evenson to combine two of his favorite things: Purdue and the television series "Game of Thrones."

Evenson, a senior in computer graphics technology and intern in the video area of the Office of Marketing and Media, has created a Purdue takeoff of the title sequence for "Game of Thrones," a fantasy drama TV series based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series.

Almost 10 months in the making, the video takes viewers on a soaring trip above the West Lafayette campus, zooming in on landmarks such as the Purdue Bell Tower and Ross-Ade Stadium while facts about the Purdue pop up on the screen -- all in the style of "Games of Thrones."
