Planet X FX

Waterland Film and director Boris Paval Conen contacted Planet X early in 2010 for the ambitious, seven-part drama series 'De Geheimen van Barslet'. The participating broadcasting companies are the NCRV and NTR.

The key moment in the series is a rain of fish, lasting 30 to 60 seconds, on the village square of Barslet, a scene that recurs in every episode. All seven main characters in the series experience this miraculous happening in their own way. The viewer follows each character individually, but the rain on the village square connects them all. It was up to Planet X to find a way to make these raining fish scenes convincing. Find more information about this process here.
