Flags of our Fathers

Director: Clint Eastwood

Visual Effects Supervisor: Matthew Butler

Invisible effects were the task at hand, creating photo-real landscapes, battle elements and soldiers for nearly 400 shots – with very few blue or green screen elements. Digital Domain produced a CG replica of Mt. Suribachi with footage that was filmed on location in Iceland and extended battle scenes across land and water through rotoscoping and use of the in-house developed Nuke compositing and STORM volumetrics software.
