I got hired and suddenly became the lead writer for a new, 3D computer graphics TV Series. Having little experience with creative writing, but extensive editing skills ... I knew I needed help!
After wallowing in uncertainty and formatic confusion, I went to the local bookstore looking for a book on screenwriting suggested by another writer on the project. The book wasn't there. But I found "How to Write for Animation" and it was EXACTLY what I needed! (The bookstore guy that rung me up said, "OH GREAT book! That just came in and I HAD to read it.")
Not only do I know how to appear as if I'm an old pro, I've got step by step instructions on everything I need to help pitch this series :) Way Kewl!
I was told to write a "Bible" ... eeek! "Didn't someone already do that?" I asked. Thanks Jeffrey! Now I know exactly what I need to include in our presentation, our bible, how much to include since we are new writers, ... EVERYTHING! And it is presented in an EASY format for busy people.
GREAT BOOK! WONDERFUL RESOURCE! It should be on every animation writers shelf!
It gives a fantastic overview, from A to Z, of all you'd need to know to get motivated to write...including access to several essential examples of scripts and a series bible. He's also a motivator, putting dreams in perspective of goals and reminding you often to write, write, write.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn the basics of writing for any kind of animation in an easy-to-digest way and also because it contains the valuable writing samples I mentioned above.

Given all the other glowing reviews I read, I expected more.
industry like the back of his hand, and it shows. Not only
does he let the reader in on all the ins and outs, ups and
downs, and biffs and pows of the industry, but he does so
in such a reasonable, down-to-earth, and inspiring tone,
that it leads you to believe that YOU CAN MAKE IT IN THE
CARTOON BIZ. I can tell you that, living far away from
the entertainment industry, this book is a Godsend. If
you've ever had any questions about making cartoons, get this book. And hey, the guy has an awesome website - AND he was kind enough to respond to an e-mail! You gotta get this book!
