Writing for Animation (Course Number: FLMB247)
Designed for writers interested in writing for animation. The art of animation requires a special and unique
approach to writing. Do you have a story or an idea for an animated story or series? This workshop will get you
started, teaching you the process necessary to develop your idea and shape it into a viable script. You will learn to
create interesting characters, put them in challenging and dramatic situations, and create suspense and tension.
You will learn how to write an outline, build a three act structure, find plot points to turn the drama, and write
dialogue and action that is unique to animation.
