Using a mixture of stills and photogrammetry allowed for absolute photo-real recreation of the landscape, skies and coverage for all angles. The wild, crashing ocean waves were created as full dynamic Houdini simulations. A variety of VFX solutions were used by the Cause team to support the story and reinforce the key VFX scene of the night-time beach storm. These included set extensions, CG water, sand treatments, day for night, prosthetic augmentation and crowd duplication.
