What we’re looking for:

  • Animated shorts that are 2 to 3 minutes in length
  • Strong, relatable characters that are at the heart of it, that our kid audience of boys and girls ages 6 to 11 will love and want to see again and again
  • Creators who are passionate about their ideas, their characters, their stories. We want you to pitch from the heart. What is it that you really, really want to make and that means something to you?

Any and all styles and techniques of animation including 2D, digital 2D, CG, Stop Motion, Mixed Media are okay.

We’re open to any genre if your short has a strong comedic backbone. Action/Adventure/mystery is okay as long as it’s funny.

What we need from you:

A storyboard or some visual representation of your 2 to 3 minute story is required. We are open to how you want to present your pitch so long as you’re giving us visuals. Basically, we want to see your pitch and be able to say “we love this, let’s make this”, and then quickly start executing your vision.


Options include:

  • A rough beat board where you just provide the key beats of the story
  • A full storyboard – thumbnail, rough, or cleaned up
  • A comic or picture book
