Default Animation companies

My latest script, an animated family adventure, is out to a couple of fairly major companies, but the prospects of getting it to Pixar and DreamWorks are slim to none (although one of my contacts does have a connection).

I know I'm pitching to a rather small market - I was compelled to write the script - but I wondered if any of you know of any up and coming animation producers (or animators) on the brink of producing features I should know about?

These days it's all about studios snapping up books ( especially children's books ) and making a property from them. I'm an animator who has worked in Hollywood for over 15 years and I've pitched my fair share of features. No bites.

You're better off writing a book if you want to sell your story. At least get SOMETHING published.

You might be right. I have an unrelated childrens' picture book out with literary agents at the moment, so I might go down the same path if nothing comes of the script.

You could always try the Aussie ones.

OK - they do TV rather than film (apart from Dr D Studios, who is a rule unto himself!) but why not give it a shot ?

The obvious ones are:

www.drdstudios.com

www.yoramgrossfilms.com.au

www.flyingbark.com.au

And whoever does 'Erky Perky' and all those other kids ones ...

Good luck !

Thanks, Mac.

I've been trying to get the script to Dr D (I'd certainly prefer it to be produced locally and you can't go much higher than George Miller), but no luck so far. However, I found out today that a friend of a friend is an artist there, so there may be a way in.

I'll look at the others, too.
