Living In The Past

Blog: Living In The Past

Not a great deal of stuff has happened this week in all honesty. Scripts have been reported on, open submissions have been researched, walks have taken place so that I have an excuse to leave the house. I suppose the only thing that's been on my mind is, what constitutes a comedy driven kids show? Looking back at old ideas/pitches a lot of my premises seem too dark or complicated. Not overly complicated to the point where kids couldn't follow but more too complicated as in "bloody hell that's a lot of set up for an animated short of less than 5 minutes". In conclusion the goal of animation (in America at least) seems to be strong characters and character driven stories so learning how to write simpler set ups/premises probably wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

You're living in the past Marge. Quit living in the past!
