Here's some more artwork. These are the B/W layouts drawings for the animation scenes. Eventually they were colored in by Brun Croes. (I'll post some of those colored BG's later.) A fair portion of these will be included in the 'Making Of' book, btw.

And please don't forget to donate if you can! Help us finish this thing, we only have 16 days left and that's not a lot.

Making Of Book

Curious about the rewards we offer for our crowdfunding campaign?

One of them is the “Making of Ticking Away” hardcover book. An inside look at what is needed when making an animated film. It will include the complete storyboard, layout drawings, development sketches and background paintings. Also included is behind the scenes information about the development of the film.
The book is one of the rewards you get when you support us for 250 EUR. We’ll also mention you in the credits. On top of that you get all the rewards of the lower amounts: the wallpaper, mp3, a signed Ticking Away DVD, flipbook, a ticket for the Dutch premier and the Best of CinéTé DVD.

Here are some samples of the storyboard:
