Behind the magic: building a digital cruise ship for Deadly Honeymoon

The use of  visual effects is not limited to sci-fi blockbusters such as The Avengers or the Lord of the Rings trilogy. You probably don’t even realize that most movies you see nowadays have at least a couple of scenes altered by digital visual effects. On-location shooting is more expensive than any other shot a studio might attempt. This is why shooting in-studio or using green screens makes movie production cheaper and faster, especially for a 1M$ budget TV movie such as Lifetime Movie Network drama Deadly Honeymoon.
 

Luxurious estates, yachts and restaurants you admire are nothing but green screens that have the astonishing landscape added later on. Here's an unseen before behind-the-scenes video for Deadly Honeymoon that features an exclusive look at the visual effects:

And here are a few screencaps from the video, showing how visual effects can make a huge difference, judging by the pics taken on the set and after the effects were added.

Deadly Honeymoon Visual Effects

Summer Glau revealed in a 2010 interview that green screens were used in Lifetime Movie Network's thriller Deadly Honeymoon:
 
Question: Did the cruise ship you filmed on actually sail anywhere… or were you not on an actual ship?
Summer Glau: No, we weren’t; it was all green-screen. Some of the crew got to go on a cruise to do certain shots, but we had to be very creative about how we shot the deck scenes. We’d shoot by a pool, then make it look like [it was] a cruise ship.
 
Many scenes of the $1-million drama were shot in Hawaii at Halawa Valley Studios, where one of the two stages has been made to look like the interior of a cruise ship.
