Product Description

 

From comic book and graphic novel adaptations to Pixar, Disney and Japanese-style anime, animated movies and television form a huge and growing segment of today’s movie market.

But breaking into this market as a writer is not exactly like trying to sell a live-action feature script. Animation has its own unwritten rules, conventions and practices.

Ken Rotcop, former Creative Head of Hanna-Barbera Studios, delivers a succinct introduction to the art and business of writing for animation, offering practical know-how for anyone wanting to bring an animated story from his/her imagination onto the screen.

You’ll learn:

  • The seven must-have pages for your animated TV show’s “Bible.”
  • What a “Letter of Agreement” is, and why you need one.
  • Treatment vs. synopsis in animation, and how to create a step outline.
  • Why your villain is the most important character.
  • Why you shouldn’t be scared to sign a studio release form.
  • And why it’s important to write.
