    Project highlight: Dragon Girl

    Since 2005 we have been making visual effects for Dutch films and television series and in recent years international productions have also become increasingly popular. Planet X's portfolio includes' Banker van het Verzet ',' Borgman ',' Schneider vs Bax ',' Public Works' and the television series' Overspel ',' Klem ',' Hoogvliegers' and the first Dutch Netflix Original 'Ares '.
     
    The studio is currently working on major (inter) national productions such as 'Vliegende Hollanders', and the new Alex van Warmerdam 'Nummer 10'.

    Planet X was responsible for the complete visual effects share of Dragon Girl from pre to finish. Featuring well over 220 shots, 170+ with a fully animated CG dragon (one of the first attempts of this scale in The Netherlands), the efforts resulted in 12 minutes of engaging screen time performance.
