The Perfect Prey

2013  VARA & IDTV Drama, director Theu Boermans

Based on the bestseller by Jeroen Smit, ‘De Prooi’ ('The Perfect Prey') tells the story of the rise and fall of banker Rijkman Groenink (played by Pierre Bokma in an award winning performance) and the fall of the ABN Amro Bank. Planet X FX took care of the series’ leader.

Rijkman Groenink is on the hunt for a stag in a surreal, limbo-like world, vaguely resembling a dealing room. Because it was virtually impossible to work with a live animal, the choice was made to use a very specific, graphical style for both the stag and the scenery. This abstract context allowed us to create all the actions and shots we needed.

The original concept of the leader was enhanced during storyboarding by introducing a reference to the famous legend of Saint Hubertus. As Hubertus encounters a crucifix between the stag's antlers as a warning for his hunt on Good Friday, Groenink in turn witnesses the bank's logo suddenly appearing on one of the big screens behind the animal.

Planet X FX worked together with 3D animation studio Happy Ship who created both the 3D stag and dealing room environment, with Donald Roos on the typography and graphic design and with storyboard artist Joscha van Deijk (more on Joscha's blogspot).

'The Perfect Prey' airs on Dutch television starting October 19th.
