Time Running Out – Intro to Animation Writing Starts August 6!

Zac AtkinsonThe animation medium offers an infinite range of storytelling possibilities – and now you can learn how it’s done!

On August 6, 2015, animation writer Zac Atkinson – a working pro in the field – will launch a new session of our Introduction to Animation Writing course. This is a can’t-miss opportunity for anyone interested in the animation industry, and offers valuable knowledge for storytellers in ANY medium!

Zac provides step-by-step guidance and insider tips, leading you to create your very own animated screenplay. He’ll cover practical topics like format, how to establish character, structuring your plot, and creating tone, all while helping you hone your creative instincts and develop your storytelling voice.

But extremely limited time remains to reserve your spot – and plans for the next session are undetermined. Don’t miss this chance!

Despite the high interest in and rapid growth of the animation arts, it can be challenging to find animation writing courses without prerequisite requirements, or the long-term commitment of a degree program. Zac’s course is designed to address that void – providing top-quality instruction via live, online sessions to students of any background, anywhere in the world – all within a six-week session.

The clock is ticking – sign up here before time runs out!
