The world of animation has expanded far beyond the children's fare generations of Americans have grown up watching. Hit television series like South Park, The Simpsons, and King of the Hill have blurred the boundary between sitcom and cartoon and have aimed straight for adult audiences with a powerful admixture of social commentary and outright hilarity.

In movie theaters, with films like Toy Story and Shrek, digital technology has enabled animators to produce films both of stunningly realistic quality and the imagination and fantasy that the genre has always supplied. In the meantime, with recent hits like Tarzan and the forthcoming Atlantis: The Lost Empire, classic animation has never been more popular. It all adds up to an expanding market for writers who have an eye toward the future and an eagerness to work in a medium where the only limit is the depth of their imagination.

With step-by-step instructions, award-winning animation writer Jeffrey Scott details every stop on the road from inspiration to production, with sections on premises, outlines, storyboards, treatments, description, and dialogue, and much more:

* The job market and salaries for animation writing
* Writing animation for the internet
* Creating an animated TV series
* How to rewrite and polish scripts
* How to get hired to write for your favorite animated TV show.

With the insights of a seasoned veteran he also gives foolproof advice on how to sell the finished product-breaking in, getting an agent, negotiating the treacherous Hollywood pitch meeting. 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.

The world of animation is expanding far beyond morning cartoons, with hit television series like South Park and The Simpsons bringing the cartoon format direct to adult audiences. In cinemas, cutting-edge digital technology has enabled such box office blockbusters as Toy Story and Shrek, while conventionally animated films such as Tarzan and the Rugrats Movie are still raking in huge ticket sales. It all adds up to an expanding market for writers with an eye for the future. Now, with step-by-step instructions, Scott will lead aspiring animation writers to the career of their dreams, detailing the process of developing even the vaguest ideas into a fully realised animation script. Drawing on his own critically acclaimed work for examples, he details every stop on the road from inspiration to presentation, as well as showing readers how to sell the finished product.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How to Write for Animation 2. August 2002
Von Carole Mendelsohn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a must-read for ALL script writers, not just toonsters. Scott takes you through the process of creating a story like a master-builder. He writes clearly, simply and with enthusiasm. His love and respect for his craft is obvious, making this a very inspiring and enjoyable read, as well as a valuable and informative one. Scott's technical tips are terrific and easy to apply. Why didn't I think of cutting and pasting an outline into a script template? Overall, I found this book to be as entertaining as it was informative and practical. The glossary alone is worth the price of the book. I've been writing animation for 10 years and can't wait to break my next story using some of his tricks. I just wish Jeffrey had written it ten years ago.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My Book, the ONLY Book I Needed! 24. Januar 2003
Von Laura Owens - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Jeffrey Scott's new book, "How to Write for Animation," was exactly what I needed! Three months after registering with an online freelance agency, I got an e-mail inviting me to bid on a project. There weren't many details on the listing, but it involved writing and that's a field I want to get into.
I got hired and suddenly became the lead writer for a new, 3D computer graphics TV Series. Having little experience with creative writing, but extensive editing skills ... I knew I needed help!
After wallowing in uncertainty and formatic confusion, I went to the local bookstore looking for a book on screenwriting suggested by another writer on the project. The book wasn't there. But I found "How to Write for Animation" and it was EXACTLY what I needed! (The bookstore guy that rung me up said, "OH GREAT book! That just came in and I HAD to read it.")
Not only do I know how to appear as if I'm an old pro, I've got step by step instructions on everything I need to help pitch this series :) Way Kewl!
I was told to write a "Bible" ... eeek! "Didn't someone already do that?" I asked. Thanks Jeffrey! Now I know exactly what I need to include in our presentation, our bible, how much to include since we are new writers, ... EVERYTHING! And it is presented in an EASY format for busy people.
GREAT BOOK! WONDERFUL RESOURCE! It should be on every animation writers shelf!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome! 5. Oktober 2005
Von Kassandra - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm a boring lawyer who had an idea for a cartoon series swimming around in her head. I found this book, followed it to the letter, developed the idea, pitched it, and now have a major animation production company who has purchased an option for the show. Mr. Scott even took the time to respond to an e-mail I sent with a question. This is a great and simple to understand resource for anyone with the ideas and gumption to go for it. Thanks Mr. Scott!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Like its title, it cuts to the chase 9. Juli 2002
Von Frank P - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This was a book my boss picked up for me for work, but it took no effort to get through this book quickly. It's well written, through the voice of someone experienced, candid, and knowledgeable.
It gives a fantastic overview, from A to Z, of all you'd need to know to get motivated to write...including access to several essential examples of scripts and a series bible. He's also a motivator, putting dreams in perspective of goals and reminding you often to write, write, write.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn the basics of writing for any kind of animation in an easy-to-digest way and also because it contains the valuable writing samples I mentioned above.

Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf

This book has it all. Jeffrey Scott not only explains how to write a script but shows you actual produced scripts. His writing style is very easy to understand and so inspirational. I recommend this book to all my animation students.
