In Level 1 of Writing for Animation, we went over some of the basics of developing and writing an animated series, and you wrote the first act of your pilot. In Level 2, we will work throughout the eight-week session to polish and rewrite your script so that by the end of the session, you have a fully revised draft that you feel good about. In a writers room setting, we'll do a deeper dive into your script, and we'll work on specific problems or questions that you might have with your script. We'll also talk about other aspects of the TV animation business and what you hope to achieve with your scripts, whether it be staffing or selling your idea. We may even have a special guest speaker! Who knows?!
