Ah, animation. Every time we check in on it, the medium seems to have jumped forward in both technology and what stories are being told. The limitless creativity an animated project can offer is incredibly enticing, but very few of us who love animated TV actually know how the sausage gets made. How big are the writers' rooms? Are the writers involved in the actual animation? How does recording work? 

If you've asked yourself these questions, then this is the webinar for you! 

This 90 Minute Webinar Will Cover: 

  • The scripting stage 
  • Art and preproduction 
  • Production and recording 
  • Live Q&A!
