What are “antics?” What's a “walla?” How does an “at:board” note change a scene description? Animation has many technical concerns live-action screenwriters don't have to consider. Indeed, cartoon writers are encouraged to use camera instructions! Through this seminar, you learn how to describe scenes even more visually, how to write for storyboard artists, and how to keep a beat-based tempo when plotting. From specifying props in a scene to marking which effects will be made by actors' voices, not sound designers' gear, this class offers a whole new kit of terms and techniques that demystifies writing for animation.
