Ziggy & the Zootram
Ziggy & the Zootram is a TV-series based on an original idea of mine and on the characters and 'world' of my books.
It's about 5 years in the works now, and the first season is halfway in production. These are the first images that came out of the pipeline, but I will ad more later. I'm involved in all aspects of the show like scripwriting, design, modeling, look & feel, and direction.
Concept: Ziggy is a young crocodile who lives with his animal friends in their houses in a crater on an island. They have a special secret – asides from walking like people, talking like people and dressing up like people... they all work at a zoo! And when they are on the way to work with their tram, something always happens. Luckily the tram can transform in a submarine, a plane, boat or whater new invention Ziggy has thought up.
