Writing For TV Animation - A Virtual Writer's Room

Overview: In this workshop-style circle, we’ll break down the TV Animation writing process from development to pitch, going over the key differences between 11min, 22min, and adult animation. As the weeks progress, we’ll go through the creative process, using show bibles/pitch decks/treatments as reference to help mentees build their own projects; and also practice working in a writer’s room-style environment.

By the end of the mentee circle, each participant will walk away with a polished animation sample, and will have gotten more 1-1 time and Q&As with working writers, story editors, and showrunners.
