Composing the score

We've managed to get Reinhard Vanbergen to compose and conduct the score for Ticking Away. Here's the two of us fine-tuning  the composition to get it just right for the film and ready for the musicians, a chamber orchestra with additional percussion, to perform.

After that it was off to Brussels to record the score at studio Dada.

Fabrique Fantastique

I've been working closely and very pleasantly with the crew at all-round animation and production studio Fabrique Fantastique who are hard at work doing compositing and coloring on Ticking Away.

Here's them looking rather photogenic.

Hanne needs exactly 4 cups of coffee to keep going.

Doing their "Usual Suspects" routine. (Gimme the keys, you @$#%*&!!)
