Animated Series Development
This course covers the preparation and development of an animated series pitch bible. Students will explore and critique successful and unsuccessful series pitches, and become familiar with the variety of options. Topics covered will include the artist-run show, world building, cast character development and design, show visual design, sample stories, and possible venues. Students will develop their own original show concept, characters, and sample stories. By the end of the quarter students will produce and pitch a presentable show bible for their series, including character designs, storyboards, and a sample pitch animatic or short that might be presented for an open call by a network.
ANI 425 is a prerequisite for this class.
