For this epic WW2 movie, we did a number of matte paintings to take Oslo back to the 1940s. We also digitally produced the boat Donau. This boat is seen both in the docks and after it has been blown up. For that shot we also did lots of digital smoke, flames and debris floating in the water.


With seven Amanda Awards, Max Manus became the largest Amanda winner at the 2009 Norwegian International Film Festival.
