Harvardwood Suggests... WGF x Business of Creating: Animation for the Big and Small Screens

January 14, 2021 at 4:00pm - 5:15pm

Panel starts at 4pm PST

The Writers Guild Foundation may have hit a pause on live events, but thanks to technology, they're aiming to provide more access to advice and knowledge from film and TV writers while we’re all social distancing. Over the last few months, the WGF has been hosting free Zoom panels about craft and all things relevant to writers.

For this session, join Business of Creating for a virtual interactive panel and Q&A with seasoned entertainment executives to learn the ins and outs of Animation for the Big and Small Screens

Topics will include: Writing for animation vs. live action. Converting a live action idea into an animated one. How producing an animated show is different than a live action show. Producing animated films vs. TV shows. During this time of quarantine, is it easier to get an animated film/show produced vs. shooting live action with real people? What action steps you, the creator, can take now to make your project rise to the top.
