A combination of actual show creation and an improv game with high audience participation. Experienced animation show creators including Dean Stefan (Matchbox Big Rig Buddies, Quack Pack), Rob Hoegee (Thunderbirds are Go!, Teen Titans), Holly Huckins (Rugrats, Sheriff Callie's Wild West), John Derevlany (LEGO Legends of Chima, Endangered Species), and Craig Miller (Curious George, Beast Wars) take suggestions called out by people in the audience for a genre, a main character, other characters, and the world it takes place in. The panel will provide a take on how a show is created, all the elements you need to take into consideration, and why the idea of it being about this or that would be too expensive. Why would we like this main character? What age group is this for? And as people shout out different ideas, you will learn why a producer or studio might say no or yes to various aspects.
