If you’ve ever tried to pitch an animated project (either a feature or pilot), you’ve probably heard that you really need a pitch deck. But what does that even mean? Are they different from non-animation pitch decks? How many pages is too much? How many pages is too little? And what’s the best way to put everything together so the person you’re sending it to can picture the animation in their head?

Worry no more! Courtney Madincea is here to teach a two-week clinic to get you up to speed!

In This Two-Week Clinic, You Will Learn:

  • The animation space overall 
  • How to put together animation pitch decks 
  • What to include and what to leave out 
  • The importance of presentation 
  • Live Discussion

Walk away with a polished pitch deck for your animation project!

About Your Host

Courtney Madincea is a graduate of Chapman University, with a BFA in Film Production and Creative Literature. During her four years at college, she interned at four different studios. Courtney worked in the Story Department at New Regency (GONE GIRL, 12 YEARS A SLAVE, BIRDMAN) doing coverage and script prep, then moved over to the Motion Picture Group and Development Department at Lionsgate Entertainment (HUNGER GAMES, DIVERGENT, SAW franchise) helping them cull through YA franchises, doing coverage and helping with premieres. Courtney moved on to the Creative Affairs department of Paramount Pictures (ZOOLANDER 2, 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: ROGUE NATION) under the President of Production at the time helping with office administration and script coverage.

Finally, she tried out for the world of animation and loved it when she landed an internship with the production team at DreamWorks Animation's THE BOSS BABY. There, she aided the editorial, story, layout and art departments until she graduated. From graduation, she continued on at DreamWorks Television Animation on ALL HAIL KING JULIEN working as an episodic production assistant. She put in almost a year on that show until Disney Animation had an opening on WRECK-IT RALPH 2 and she’s been with them ever since!
