In this interactive circle, join Creators Ellen Martin (Creator, Blaze & The Monster Machines) and Jennifer Oxley (Creator, Peg + Cat among other Nickelodeon development projects) and Nickelodeon’s Sarah Landy (SVP, Nickelodeon Preschool), and Kirsten Samanich (Sr. Coordinator, Nickelodeon Preschool), as they walk you through the process of pitching & developing a concept and taking it to current series. Each coming from a different background within the animation industry (a producer-creator, an artist/ animation director creator, and network executives) they will speak to a number of different angles and experiences as to what makes a successful pitch and what goes into the process of bringing it to series.
Times Per Month: Weekly
Meeting Times: 12pm (EST)
We are happy to speak to the process of pitching & developing a concept and taking it to current series. As two creators (one producer and one artist/ animation director) and two network executives, we feel we can speak to a number of different angles and experiences as to what makes a successful pitch and what goes into the process of bringing it to series.
