Exit

2013  KeyFilm in coproductie met de NCRV, director Boris Paval Conen

‘Exit’ is the true story of five asylum seekers who, on the night of their deportation, decide to resist. The authorities try everything in their power to expel them from the country. An oppressive night full of conflict and plotting ensues.

Because the airplane that plays a major role in the film could not resemble one from a recognizable airliner, Planet X FX had to make an existing plane – one from a museum – look like one from a fictional airline as realistically as possible. The color, logo and general appearance of the plane were altered in more than forty shots. This was a creative challenge, due in part to the additional complications handheld filming and the night-time setting.

Planet X FX also took care of the title sequence for the film.

'Exit' was awarded a 'Gouden Kalf' award for Best Television Drama at the Dutch Film Festival 2013.

Before & after (1/4)

In over 40 shots, the plane was digitally coloured and changed.

Before & after (2/4)

The alterations focused mainly on the existing plane's logo, it's colour and turbine engines.

Before & after (3/4)

Actors and objects moving in front of the plane proved a challenge, especially in combination with the handheld style of shooting.

Before & after (4/4)

This resulted in a great deal of rotoscoping work to isolate certain parts of the image that needed to be changed.

Five asylum seekers decide to resist their deportation on the night. Too much is riding on it for the authorities so they give it their all to extradite the five refugees. This story, based on true events, is a long night filled with battle and intrige. A night in which no one will come out a winner...
