Special effects

Sometimes you just can't get the shot you need. Whether it's weather effects, parts of a scene needing to be replaced or removed, or things that are impossible, too dangerous or just too expensive to do in real life, your solution is to turn to special effects.

Matchmoving software was used to copy the camera movement into the animation program so that CGI elements were locked to the scene and didn't appear to "float".
