For Rampvlucht, the large-scale TV series conspiracy thriller about a flight crash and investigations by the Dutch Parliament between 1992−1998, ReadySet Studios used virtual production techniques to facilitate real-time digital environments of the Parliament spaces and Amsterdam’s Airport traffic tower. Working with award-winning producer Fleur Winters of Amsterdam’s Big Blue productions, the five-part pollical thriller and first Big Blue original production was released at the end of 2022 and won the Golden Calf (Dutch Oscar) for best drama series in the Netherlands. The production is notable as the first Dutch television series to make extensive use of in-camera visual effects (ICVFX).
Winters has broad industry experience in both film and television, initially working as an international film sales agent and a senior (format) buyer. In 2015 she began producing feature films at Amsterdam-based Lemming Film and, shortly after as Co-CEO, started to focus on expanding the international drama series output of the studio. In 2020 Winters founded Big Blue, a production company fully focused on high-end drama series.
