Harry Mah
Seeking pitching connections.

Hey all..Are there any animation producers or people who have connections with Disney or Nick's development team executives? You will get your percentage in writing if ever the tv project is sold. Thanks!

Shelly Paino
Short animation script

Hi animators! I'm a screenwriter who has written nine feature scripts and several shorts. I have a script for a silent animated short (in the vein of Pixar's shorts, but needless to say I don't know anyone at Pixar), but it's not clear whether something like this goes down the same path as a feature...

Hi Shelly, Maybe you could try connecting with some of the members who are animators? Or if you see some animated short films at festivals that you like you could contact the producers? Good luck with your project.

Amber Greenlee is always looking for opportunities. Cheers.

Thanks Amber!

Hey guys, maybe you can help me. I am thinking of having an agent in the United States to represent me and get work in art direction, illustration and 3D. I do not know if this is possible since I live in Brazil but if possible what tip would you give me to reach my goal and get in touch with some agent? Thank you very much for your attention.

Laurie Ashbourne

For animation, you don't need an agent, just samples of your work. Animation studios rarely go to agents looking for artists, it's word of mouth and demonstrated skills. Try building a portfolio on

Eduardo Maciel

Thanks for the reply Laurie, but I refer to 2d and 3d illustrations.Artella's tip was good.

George McMorrow
Asbury Park Music and Film Festival

I have gotten involved with the APMFF. They are having a film festival in April and are looking for submissions. I know that they don't have many in Animation and I thought this would be a good opportunity to showcase your animated films or shorts. If interested, please visit the website

Michael same thing applies. If you are doing a series such as Archer or BoJack you still need the basics. By studio to partner with, do mean an animation studio or a media outlet? If it's an animation...

Hi, I am an animator. You may need my help.

Michael Berry

Laurie Ashbourne Yes, I know. I found a possible studio now I just discovered I need a Animation Producer. Any suggestions or recommendations?

Laurie Ashbourne

Michael, it depends on what you need a producer for. Do you need someone to raise funds or someone to help with the production? If you have funds I can steer you to people but ultimately you need someone to believe in the work so I'm guessing you have pitch material?

Michael Berry

Laurie Ashbourne Yes, I need one to help with funds. And yes, I have script, storyboards and concept art, and a studio willing to do it. So, please can you hook a Brotha up?
