WRITING FOR ANIMATED TELEVISION with Matt Price
Important note - you do not need to know to how to draw for this class. This class will help develop your skills and voice as a writer in animation. If you can draw, that’s great, but we won’t be working on that (mainly because I can’t draw). Students will have weekly deadlines and should be prepared to devote time outside of class to writing and rewriting assignments for every session.
