The Crash (Rampvlucht) won best drama series at The Netherlands Film Festival 2022.
The first production that will be shot in ReadySet Studios new virtual production studio is the Dutch drama series Rampvlucht (KRO-NCRV), a large-scale conspiracy thriller about the Bijlmer plane disaster in 1992, which led to a much-discussed parliamentary inquiry.
The Senate and House of Representatives feature frequently in this series by production company Big Blue, but it turned out to be impossible to film at these locations.
“Virtual production offers a solution by creating these locations completely digitally and completely credible in 3D. As a result, it offers great perspectives for all filmmakers who often face these kinds of challenges," said co-founder Florian Legters of ReadySet Studios.
The main screen of ReadySet Studios is 14 meters wide and 5.5 meters high with a large LED ceiling and can be moved separately. The set-up uses high-quality display technology and was installed by the leading Dutch company Faber Audiovisuals. ReadySet Studios is one of the largest of its kind in Europe and can therefore already count on national and international attention.
