Filming of Season 1 is coming to an end soon and journalists are slowly starting their set visits to interview cast and crew. One of them is Cleide Klock, who posted a photo of herself in the studio just before an interview.
We can see lots of amazing concept artworks and while we don’t have much idea what exactly they portray, in one of the corners you can read “Orchard illusion” above a picture that shows, well, an orchard. It’s very possible that the concept art is for the short story A Lesser Evil. When Geralt meets Stregobor in his tower, he sees that Stregobor uses illusions of locations as he can’t go out because he fears for his life. Below that picture is the end of a word “-uza” which matches the name of Aretuza, a magical academy for young girls in The Witcher universe that will likely feature in the first season. Let’s zoom in and take a better look at the artwork.
Cleide also uploaded very interesting videos in the stories. You can see piles of props and a large rock wall on the lot, which she identifies as being from The Witcher set. Check out those clips collected into the video below.[vimeo 333348696 w=640 h=360]
Fernanda Arena is also there for The Witcher press junket and posted a very interesting Instagram Story proving that these are concept art for the series… as well as our first look at Freya Allan as Ciri.
