Betrayal 2

2013  VARA, director Frank Ketelaar, Albert Jan van Rees

For the second season of the psychological thriller series ‘Betrayal’ Planet X FX is responsible for the visual effects, leader and title design.

Planet X FX’s important visual effects contributions for the series are the sequences in moving cars. These were shot in a green screen studio but had to look as though they were filmed on a real highway. Planet X FX helped develop a rig (build by Gripwise) on which several cameras were mounted so that they could film a panoramic sequence of the background. Every studio shot could be matched to an appropriate background angle to produce a realistic result.

‘Overspel 2’ aired on Dutch television in October 2013.

Visual effects breakdown

In this reel, we emphasize the before and after comparison of shots that were made in a studio with cars before green screen. With the help of a custom build 'rig', plates were shot with moving scenery that fit the story and were used to replace the green screens.

Multi-camera rig for capturing environments

Six cameras on the back and two cameras on the front of a moving car make it possible to capture the environment in all directions simultaneously. This allows great flexibility in determining what is the best matching angle for the studio shots. Rig-building and photo: Grip Wise

Resulting plates

The resulting plates can be stitched to form a seamless, continuous whole. The bottom image in the mosaic is from a camera looking straight up, and is used to add reflections on the windshields cars.
