Northmen - A Viking Saga __FULL__
During postproduction the visual effects team was facing the challenge to convey a compelling ocean, without ever shooting on the sea. We went with using stock material of contemporary ships crushing through huge waves and replace those ships with a 3D-viking-galley including simulated sail and ropes. We then added the actors who were also filmed in front of a green screen doing all kinds of stuff like pulling ropes and falling. A big amount of work went into convincingly add in the viking-boat behind the semi-transparent practical waves.
