HAMMERHEAD provided 16 VFX shots used throughout BLUE CRUSH. These face replacements created the illusion that the film's star, KATE BOSWORTH, was surfing the half pipe.
A specialized water unit, shooting expert ROCHELLE BALLARD surfing, captured the plates.
After appropriate footage was selected, Kate was photographed with similar lighting conditions. Her images were mapped onto a digitally scanned model of her face. This element was then tracked and intergrated back into the live action to create the final composite.
