Ships and submarines are the main part of the action-thriller “Hunter Killer“. In this particular shot, you can see how we used footage of a ship of the Canadian Navy to transform it into a Russian one with the help of Maya, Houdini, Katana, and Nuke.

“Hunter Killer” is directed by Donovan Marsh and is starring Gerald Butler, Gary Oldman, Common, Michael Nyqvist, Linda Cardellini.
