My Dad passed away last Feruary. While he was ill I was inspired to create a children's cartoon, which I have dedicated to my Dad. He saw some of the work before he went and knew I was dedicating it him. I have just finished doing an animated promo showcasing some of the characters and the whole idea. My © and legalities are just about finished and I will soon put this on a website for all to see (right around xmas). I have the hopes of bringing the cartoon shorts to television. What I am asking is... who should I be talking to first to get this ball rolling? I have a pilot written and more episode ideas written as well as many more characters, etc. I am just not sure where to start now that it is ready to be looked at by the industry. It's an innovative, animated cartoon idea. It's for young children, like a Saturday morning shorts type thing, maybe 2 cartoons per half hour.... I am unsure weather to approach animators, animation studios, other production studios, tv stations, which companies? Although I animated the clip, It's more the writing and production that I am interested in. Should I be looking for animators to do the pilot myself or should I look for a company interested in handling the whole project. Well, as you can see, I have never done this before... and this is where I am starting..right HERE. Tonight I have a "premiere" for all those who helped in making the promo... voice-overs, camera lending for an interview for the website, etc. The finished promo has only been seen by family members so far, some young children who love it already.... good feeling. Well, thank you for reading this and I look forward to hearing from those in the know, as to what my next steps might be. I know it's hard without seeing my work yet, but it's greatly appreciated. Who knows.... this might be the Next Big Thing.
