Nviz were called upon by Sony to handle 180 VFX shots for Captain Phillips.


The film is the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.

Nviz’s varied VFX award grew exponentially as the project progressed. The work included CG helicopters, airplanes, vehicles, CG seascapes, environments, as well as interface design and animation for screen inserts and camera feeds aboard the USS Bainbridge.
