Angelina’s Jolie’s Unbroken sought to implement cutting-edge special effects in a story-driven tale.

The film required complex plane battles, crashes, environments, crowd extensions, and even sharks to help tell the story of bombadier Louis “Louie” Zamperini’s imprisonment in a Japanese POW camp after his B-24 Liberator crew crashed in the South Pacific.
