For several months I have worked on the animation intro of ‘Back to Iraq’, a documentary by Anne Dilven. I’m very pleased with the end result, hopefully pretty soon to be seen at every film festival around the world!

Tim de Groot - Op weg naar Het Lagerhuis

I just finished a short serie of animations for ”Op weg naar Het Lagerhuis”, which is a Dutch debat show of the VARA. The clock will be used to lead a debating competition for high school students in The Netherlands.

Corso

I have worked for long time with my fellow writer and editor Derek van Egmond on the scenario for ‘Corso’ my new animation film, unfortunately this project is now on a temporary pause before the film can be realized. Because of the scale of this project and not yet enough investors to back us up financially during production time. So pretty sad news… Anyway, all in good time! Here you can watch the first animation test, which already was partially worked out, just to feel a bit of the atmosphere. A lot of work still needs to be done, I can’t wait to start again!

And the good news, during this pause I’m full time available again for all your animation and illustration jobs!

Polderen

Tim de Groot - POLDEREN

I made this short animation film ‘Polderen’ for the art institute bkkc (brabants kenniscentrum kunst & cultuur). The film shows my response to a dilemma which currently takes place between nature lovers and serious businessmen in the region of Steenbergen (North Brabant, The Netherlands). This beautiful piece of Dutch landscape lies exactly at the same spot of a new municipal infrastructure plan. You can watch the film here: vimeo.com/studiomittens/polderen
