An Animated Conversation with Sean Gantka

Webinars ~ Industry Series
Hosted By:
Sean Gantka - Line Producer, Marvel Studios Animation

Have you ever seen an animated film (either a feature or short) or an amazing animated TV series and wondered to yourself, how can I write something that can turn into that? After all, if you’ve been writing for live action this whole time, animation seems like an entirely new, impossible mountain to climb. Should you develop animation differently? Do you have to be an artist? And what if you write the script and then you don’t have any way to get it out there?

Worry no more! We’ll answer all this and more!

This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover:

  • How animation gets made
  • Breaking in and networking 
  • What makes a great animated project
More about
Sean Gantka
Line Producer
Marvel Studios Animation

Sean Gantka has had a winding and interesting path to where he is now as the Line Producer on “X-Men ‘97” at Marvel Studios Animation. An opera singer in college, a professor of English with a Masters Degree in Medieval Literature, and then into the world of animation with aspirations of being a writer, it took time and experiences to help him learn his true passion for production and working with creative people. In his 12 years in animation Production, Sean has worked on award winning and audience beloved shows like “The Legend of Korra,” “The Loud House,” “The Casagrandes,” and “Wolfboy and the Everything Factory.” Now he is living a childhood dream of helping to bring the next incarnation of animated Marvel mutants into the world. Sean loves building and working with teams, mentoring people through their own animation career journeys, and reading comics as “research.” Outside of work he adores spending time with his family, reading stories about Merlin, and nearly anything related to the Muppets.
