Are there any writers, storyboardists etc on here?



  • Are there any like screenwriters on here & storyboardists? I just started writing this cartoon series & i'm 115 pages into my first proper film script, 15 pages til it's completed :), but for this one, I'm probably gonna need to invest myself & buy like Toon Boom Harmony & Storyboard to actually do it by myself. I need advice from someone who's been in the business before I guess, feedback. I tried to search up Cartoon Network writers on Class of 3000 and Billy & Mandy and Dexter's Laboratory and Rocket Power but I couldn't find any contact info for all of them.

    But i'm writing this pilot and there's surge of ideas flowing that are kind of overwhelming, I can't settle on one thing, I want to make it perfect and classic, just looking at the Hey Arnold first episode & Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, looking at Tim Burton's visual style and old 1980's films, studying what makes it so great, deciding on one idea but then getting inspired by another thing and restarting. So much that I started writing the second episode first but I'm still conflicted between choosing concepts for the first episode.

    I kind of just need advice and feedback from any writer on here if there are in general, who's been through this before or just anyone who's just been overwhelmed by multiple ideas.

    Not a screenwriter or anything like that, but in my spare time I have been developing an indie game over the past year and have picked up many resources and techniques on how to write a good story, tropes, and some animation techniques.

    For writing:
    First grab Scrivener, its a helluva writing tool. There's also tons of templates floating around to download from really well known and established writers. - https://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener.php

    Periodic table of storytelling - http://jamesharris.design/periodic/ - SUPER useful when character creating, world building, plot, etc. Bookmark it and reference it regularly.

    For animation/illustration:
    http://art-eater.com/2010/07/test-1-darkstalkers - principles of animation
    http://www.proko.com - anatomy, drawing
    https://www.toonboom.com - animation software

    Anyway the rest of the info I have is mostly on coding and game design. Hope this helps you create what you have in your head. Godspeed dude.
