Comic-Con’s Saturday program schedule is posted, and we’ve reviewed it to give you a sneak peek at an intriguing Transformers-related panel that features creators from both Beast Wars and Rescue Bots:
Let’s Create A Cartoon Series 10:00am – 11:00am Room 9
Experienced animation show creators, including Dean Stefan (Matchbox Big Rig Buddies, Quack Pack), Craig Miller (Curious George, Beast Wars: Transformers), Nicole Dubuc (Young Justice, Transformers: Rescue Bots), and Andrew Robinson (Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters, Young Justice), take suggestions called out by people in the audience, first for a genre, then for a main character, then other characters to add, then the world it takes place in. This is a combination of actual show creation and a sort of improv game. It’s a take on how a show is created-all the elements you must consider, such as what age group it’s for, why the idea of it being about this or that would be too expensive, or why it can’t take place on water if it’s CGI.
What are your suggestions for creating a cartoon series from scratch? Are you attending the convention? Stay tuned for more Transformers-related updates as Comic-Con approaches and join the discussion on the 2005 boards!
