One of many popular events at this year's AnimfxNZ was the Writing for Animation workshop at Park Road Post Café. Industry stalwarts Rob Hoegee and Grant Moran explored how to develop a show bible and create interesting characters and scripts, drawing on their experience on well-known shows such as Teen Titans, Thunderbirds Are Go, Jimmy Neutron and Rugrats.
We've had some really great feedback about the session and thought it was too valuable a piece of education to keep to ourselves. If you're currently trying to break into the animation or screen writing industry, this is an absolute must-watch!
