Pizza Maffia

2011  IDTV Film, director Tim Oliehoek

‘Pizza Maffia’ tells the story of Ibrahim and his cousin Illias. They are known as Bram and Haas (hare), the fastest pizza delivery boys at Novara, the pizzeria owned by Bram’s father. Every evening they race through the city on their scooters and pull the most dangerous stunts to be the first to get to their clients. After a serious argument between Bram’s father and his brother Faris, Illias’s father, Faris, begins his own pizzeria on the opposite side of the square. A pizza war ensues. Everyone and everything imaginable gets involved in this war. 

Planet X FX created the title sequence and was responsible for the spectacular scooter crash in the opening scene of the film in which the character Haas is launched in the direction of the camera.

In addition, diverse stunts were enhanced. There are about 80 visual effects shots in the film.

Actor Illias Ojja was shot against a green screen with a Weiscam high speed camera (900 fps). The scooter and debris were shot separately, also in high speed, and along with the falling actor, composited together to form one shot.

The exciting opening scene with the scooters going through a tunnel was interspersed with macroshots of a pizza being prepared. The titles were merged into the shots of the pizza preparation to look like they were physically present.
