After the previous round, the movie has been finalized in the post-production phase and now is finished. As most visual effects work shall be completed during post-production, VFX was carefully planned and choreographed in the pre-production and production phase. While special effects such as explosions and gunfire were made on set, visual effects were primarily executed in post-production with the use of multiple tools and technologies such as graphic design, modeling, animation, and similar software. A visual effects supervisor was involved with the production from an early stage to work closely with production and the film's director design, guide, and lead the teams required to achieve the desired effects.

Currently, WarHunt is in the post-production period, which is the final and safest stage of production. At the moment, the actors are doing voice-overs from the scenes of the movie that were shot outdoors. All of the processes are being done in the studio, minimizing the delivery risk due to the COVID-19.
Finished post-production steps:
Now the producers are working on the Visual effects - the process by which the imagery is created or manipulated outside the context of a live-action shot in filmmaking. VFX involves the integration of live-action footage (special effects) and generated imagery (digital or optical effects) to create environments, inanimate objects, animals, or creatures that look realistic but would be dangerous, expensive, impractical, time-consuming, or impossible to capture on film. Visual effects using computer-generated imagery (CGI) have recently become accessible to the independent filmmaker with the introduction of affordable and relatively easy-to-use animation and compositing software.
The current times have had a positive impact on WarHunt. As expected, the global pandemic has created a worldwide lockdown and because of the shortage of content, WarHunt becomes more valuable and the sales price is expected to exceed the one which was initially planned. What it means to CROWDESTOR investors is that the success fee will also be higher.
The respectable online magazine “Variety” writes that Italian director Mauro Borrelli, who has worked in the art department of many Hollywood movies, including two “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi,” describes “WarHunt” as a “wild ride with powerful images; but also a great metaphor about war and its evil, told with powerful iconic characters.” Read more here.

Watch the movie production process and behind the scenes here:
A US Army plane flies over Germany’s Black Forest in 1945. It is suddenly being enveloped by a swarm of mysterious feathers and loses control. As the aircraft plummets toward the ground, the AIRMEN see the feathers converging to form a MYSTERIOUS WOMAN IN BLACK. Later that night, SERGENT BREWER briefs his SQUAD on their mission to locate and rescue the crew from the downed plane. They are interrupted by MAJOR JOHNSON and his trusted specialist, WALSH – an expert tasked with destroying sensitive intel, which was aboard the aircraft. Walsh and the rest of the squad prepare their gear and set off into the forest.
They navigate the dense foliage, Walsh learns the squad medic, Morgan – the sole African American in the squad of the white man – was just added because of his high skill in battle.
The men soon come across a decrepit, isolated cottage. A soldier, RUCKER, peeks inside to see in there 4 BEAUTIFUL WOMEN. One of them, Stria – resembling the woman in the plane – emerges, distracting Rucker – and separating him from the other soldiers.
The specialist Walsh and the others set up camp, Brewer attempts to contact Major Johnson, but a MYSTERIOUS VOICE cries out from the radio, imploring the soldiers to evacuate the forest before they die. Meanwhile, Stria leads Rucker to the plane’s wreckage. But when he attempts to return to the squad, Stria stops him, enticing him with her powers of seduction. When Rucker insists, she reveals her TRUE, NIGHTMARISH FORM. Rucker shoots her and flees back to the others.
When the soldiers try to escape the woods, they discover their initials carved into trees. The air is filled with the cawing of crows. They catch brief glimpses of the mysterious women among the foliage… as the men get picked off one by one.
Walsh and another soldier, FREEMAN, are the last survivors. They find the cottage again, and Walsh manages to radio the coordinates to Major Johnson. He then reveals to Freeman he was sent to locate the TREE OF LIFE – which holds the secret of immortality and that the eerie women are its guardians. That’s when the women attack, incapacitating Walsh and killing Freeman.As the woman prepares to sacrifice the last man standing, Walsh seemingly escapes… but the witches win in the end.
