About the Book:

How to Write for Animation is the ultimate guide for anyone with ambitions of writing for the most rapidly developing medium in all of entertainment.

Over the years, the world of animation has expanded far beyond the Saturday morning cartoons that generations of North Americans grew up watching. Recent years have seen a boom in animation hit prime-time television series, blockbuster cutting-edge digitally animated features, and conventional animation. The expanding market is luring writers who have an eye toward the future and an eagerness to work in a medium where the only limit is the depth on one's imagination.

With step-by-step instructions and the insights of a seasoned veteran, award-winning animation writer Jeffrey Scott details the process of developing even the vaguest of ideas into a fully realized animation script. He details every stop on the road from inspiration to presentation, with sections on premises, outlines, treatments, description, dialogue, and much more including:

• The complete premise, outline and script from an episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles written by Jeffrey Scott

• The job market and salaries for animation writing

• How to write funny material

• Writing animation for the internet

• Creating an animated TV series

• Maximizing creative potential

• Selling the finished product
