Development support is dedicated to TV series or TV specials at the design, writing or development stages of the projects and intended primarily for television release.
Several phases of work can be considered at this step: graphic research, storyboard, animation test, animatic, pilot, etc.
This support concerns projects carried out by production companies acting as producers or co-executive producers (upon presentation of a contract). The producer will have to take on the artistic, technical and financial responsibility of the project and be able to provide a contract for transfer of copyright, dated and signed, with the projects' author(s)/director(s).
Every animation technique is accepted.
The funding amount for animated TV series or TV special is of €25,000 per project.
Ciclic doesn’t organize specific call for projects. However, the selection is based on the projects pitched at Annecy MIFA TV PItches, CEE Animation Forum TV Pitches (Czech Republic) and Cartoon Springboard in Madrid.
