The VFX of Hardcore Henry
Hardcore Henry is a bit of a landmark movie. Being a feature-length actioner shot in first person (on a GoPro camera no less) the film feels like a new breed of action movie. Produced by Timur Bekmambetov, director of the insane “Night Watch” and “Day Watch” it relies mostly on practical FX but what solidifies the action is the excellent work carried out by several companies to augment it all into one seamless piece of mayhem. There’s a great article that goes in-depth on the VFX work over at Indiewire.
