Aquaman was a smash hit, breaking records and becoming the highest grossing DC Extended Universe adaptation so far. A big part of that has to do with the film’s stunning visual effects. Although director James Wan has made it explicitly clear his displeasure of Aquaman not receiving recognition by the Oscars for its visuals, a new video showcases how much work went into producing the film’s VFX.

In the footage above, we see how much time went into crafting the motions of hair while underwater, showcasing it was completely digital. The actors had their hair tied down and were filmed completely dry despite most of the film taking place underwater. Although the VFX have been praised, a lot of practical effects were used as well, although they utilized blue screen in most cases.

Check out the video above and comment below.
