Animation Writing 201

 Animation scripts require a great deal of description indicating what we see visually. They also run longer at up to thirty six pages for a 22 minute episode. The animation script becomes a map and inspires layout artists, designers, storyboard artists and more so they can turn your vision into pictures. In Animation Writing 201 you will work on premise, story outline, characters, dialogue, and drafting your original 1/2 hour TV treatment. This course reinforces your knowledge of screenwriting structure, and character development learned in prior 101 classes.

The goal of Animation Writing 201 is to draft a treatment for a half hour animation script. Homework and reading assignments are necessary for your success.  


This course may be repeated. Please be prepared to write within the class time.
