Tron Storyboards on eBay

The other day I posted about the eBay seller the museumofmomandpopculture.  In addition to the original Tron cels they have for sale, they also have some amazing original pencil storyboards from the film.

These are incredible 4x9 pieces.  They have pinholes in the corners from when they were displayed for production.  Tron had to be completely storyboarded because of the complexity of every shot.  I love the dynamic lines of the one with the tanks about to fall into the abyss.  The one with the Recognizers moving through the mountains is more simple but no less unique.

Tron Production Cels on eBay

One of eBay's great sellers of entertainment memorabilia is the museumofmomandpopculture.  They currently have some rare and interesting original production cells from Tron for sale.

These are wonderful historical pieces since it's unlikely that any other film will ever use this labour-intensive process.  These are high contrast cels that allow for the circuitry patterns to be seen clearly.  Other cels would be composited with hand animation and colouring to complete the frame.

This next one is interesting because it includes two pieces of the composite.

These next two are 12x20 kodalith photos.

The listed prices range from $250-$500 which I think is a little high but they do also have the make an offer option.
