Storm drain fight sequence

This scene required the stunt performers face to be replaced with Matt Damon's face. I analysed the lighting and camera movement for each of the shots and created a plot for each setup.  These were all shot on green screen with Matt Damon performing the facial moves in actual slow motion so we could get the head movements correct without motion blur.  This gave VFX Supervisor Charlie Noble as much clarity of image as possible and also enabled Director Paul Greengrass to be happy with the performance, and for us to be sure we had a technically correct take.
