Default Smaller studios/prod co's looking for animated features?

Just wondering if anyone is aware of any smaller companies looking to fininace animation. All the big studios seem to have their films planned out for the next ten years.

Beerbeast, you're not going to sell a feature animation script anywhere in the Western world unless it garners a G or PG. End of story.

But start with a short, and contact fx facilities. Sometimes they team up with animator/writers on shorts as a way of experimenting.

Marylyn, unless you've actually sat down and tried to MAKE animation or have worked for a major animation studio ( as I have ), I wouldn't try to tell ME what the business is like. I'm asking for contacts, not advice on what animation fans like, which, if you've been paying attention to lately, is adult oriented anime

Try making a single film a frame at a time, then talk to me.

I believe this is what debaters refer to as "a smackdown."

I'd be interested in seeing any possible contacts - I've got a similar screenplay myself

adult oriented anime? Well, I did say the Western world. Either start small, or go to Japan.

And you want sympathy and support, but you refuse to see reality. You want everybody to bend and jump up and down about an animation that they see no market for.

Go to where there IS a market.

I never asked for sympathy mar. I don't know where you got that impression.

American studios don't produce for a niche market, they produce for a mass market. Unless you find someone who loves your material as much as you do, but I don't think you will, because they love survival more.

If you insist on writing American animation that's MA, then you'll have to start small, and prove a local audience likes it.

I personally think it'll only take three days to redraft as PG, but hey, that's just me.

Before this "back & forth" goes on any more, Beer simply asked this, "Just wondering if anyone is aware of any smaller companies looking to fininace animation." That's it. Smaller companies. Not major studios, but s-m-a-l-l-e-r companies.

No one has yet answered that simple question. Everything else, so to speak, has been brought up including the rating for the project, which Beer never even noted in this thread.

And this to & for everyone, if "you" know of some animation companies that might help out, then great. Wonderful. If not, please don't come in here and start bringing up other things Beer didn't even ask about. (And please don't do that in other threads either.) It's a very straightforward question.
