Ideally, we’re looking for a 'four-quadrant' film the whole family could watch, but we’ll take a look at edgier material that may have cross-over appeal.
Animation allows the imagination to run wild, so we want to see worlds and ideas we wouldn’t ordinarily get to see. It needs to have a HIGH-CONCEPT hook, though, which means it should be easy-to-explain but with fresh ideas and high stakes. And of course the characters need to be fantastic, lovable and marketable.
Because of the era we’re all living through, we’re looking for delightful, fun material. Feel-good stuff that conveys bright and exuberant energy.
We strongly encourage BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and female writers, as those are voices that are typically underrepresented and undervalued in this market.
When submitting, please include your SCRIPT, a SYNOPSIS and a thoroughly developed LOGLINE – please do not only write a tag line or tiny TV Guide blurb. We want to know your concept and hook within the logline.
Union and non-union writers accepted. Scripts from anywhere in the world will be considered but must be in English language.
