American Sniper

  • Director: Clint Eastwood
  • Studio: Warner Bros.
  • VFX Studio: MPC

Animatrik tapped into their intelligence sources to help develop the gripping story of Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper.

Animatrik hosted the production in its Vancouver studio, capturing the performance of actors portraying both rangers and insurgents in the film’s climactic firefight scenes.

These captures were used to create true-to-life digi-doubles. The actions of the digi-doubles needed to precisely match the actors already present in the plate photography. This meant an extra layer of strategy and logistics were involved on Animatrik’s end to ensure the digi-double performances felt completely realistic in the final sequence.
