We provided the visual effects of the film; from cleanup and stabilises to a CG illuminated sign on the wall.
In the opening sequence, we see the swimming pool where the girls swim on the one side and the three friends on the other side. The colours are bright. The blue water. Black tiles define the laps. Red floats and yellow rubber-swimming pillows. DOP Dennis Wielaert's shots are graphical; which create grids. We used the grids to put the typography in place.
Together with director Albert Jan van Rees, we looked for a font that had a pronounced character, both elicited and anarchistic. The main title is placed on a top shot of the pool, full frame in big yellow letters.
Adios Amigos is a 2016 Dutch drama film directed by Albert Jan van Rees. It is a remake of the 2011 Belgian film Come as You Are.
Lars and Philip can not keep their eyes off the girls in the swimming pool. Their friend Joost is blind so they have to describe it for him. Not that Lars and Philip have any chance with the girls; Philip can not move because of a muscle disease and Lars has a brain tumor that keeps him in a wheelchair. So they go on holiday to a place where all girls are willing, according to Lars; Salou! The three friends snare nurse Lub who has a bus to drive them. But being torn from their familiar environment they are hard faced with their dependence. It turns out that they can not cover all their deepest fears with great humor. With each kilometer, the journey is less about sex and more about friendship.
