Planet X FX

In cooperation with the Hungarian VFX studio Digital Apes, Planet X - with teams in Amsterdam, Groningen and Brussels - has created close to five hundred vfx shots to bring to life the Amsterdam of 1888.

3D model of Amsterdam

Many different techniques were used by Planet X (NL) and Digital Apes (Hungary) to create a vast and detailed 3D model of Amsterdam, complete with fancily dressed inhabitants and other countless assets needed to create a believable cityscape. This 3D model (and other additional digital matte paintings and elements) could be matched to the footage shot mainly on a sound stage in Budapest, where a portion of street was build as an actual set.
