180 Degree Head Turn

Hey guys, so I'm working on a film where a character's head turns from the front all the way to back, like in horror movies or like an owl. Is there any way in Hitfilm to do that? Or would that be a more practical effect, in which case how would I do something like that?

Thank you!

    Film the character in the scene, then film the head while the actor rotates. Greenscreen the head if possible, to save yourself a lot of rotoscoping. Then comp the head onto the body. Our latest tutorial runs through the basic process of head swapping, in the Witcher trailer.
