Comedy Wanted
Drawn or Alive

 

Video Details

Sponsored by: Creative Talent Network

Join Yvette Kaplan and her panel of 5 accomplished bi-genre writers for “Comedy Wanted: Drawn or Alive”, a discussion about the creative and procedural differences between writing Animated or Live Action Comedy. Comedy has traditionally been the King of prime time television, with comedy writers it’s brightest stars. While animated series have long been a notable part of the prime-time landscape, the rise of reality TV and the subsequent reduction of scripted comedy has helped push animation into it’s rightful place at the pinnacle of comedy programming. Animation’s newfound respect– Family Guy has been nominated for a prime time comedy Emmy—and its creative and financial rewards are drawing (no pun intended!) live action’s top comedy writers increasingly into the animation world. Are there differences between writing for live action or animation? If so, what are they? Are there specific joys and pains? And how easy is the transition for all involved? Animation Director Yvette Kaplan has hand picked an illustrious Panel of talented, thoughtful and very funny writers to share their point of view on these questions and more. All have returned or gravitated to animation after many years of writing for live action TV and features. Join us as we discuss their experiences and insights about what it takes to work within the very collaborative process of animation and to create great animated comedy. At the end of the discussion, we will move to a more intimate setting to continue the conversation and answer questions from the audience.
