The goal was to incorporate as many live-action shots as possible to keep the surreal world believable for the actors. For scenes on the boat, we utilized large LED screens to create a fully immersive experience of the ocean and sky. This added a distinct texture and quality to the film. It also reduced the need for extensive visual effects in post-production, requiring only minor tweaks to achieve the desired outcome.
