The Project has officially started. The brief for this project is to produce a 10 second animated filler to run between programmes and commercials. Nickelodeon caters for an audience of children between the ages of 4 and 10. Think Tex Avery.
7th April Project starts
18th April Students pitch ideas to teachers
21st April Winning Students e-mailed
23rd April Application forms completed
6th May First pitch to Nickelodeon
(Pitches either green lit or rejected)
12th June Second pitch to Nickeloden with Storyboards
21st July Deadline
So the really important days is the 18th April and 6th May, that's the day the project sinks or swims.
As to Mike's suggestion, the way I approached was to come up with some really engaging and amusing characters with identifiable personalities that could be cast in a variety of different situations.
I hope this is what they are looking for.
