1. Decide on a theme and the foundation of your cartoon series ( asy enough!

". #hink of the different characters that $ould make up your cartoon series Done %. ngage a good cartoon script$riter to de&elop a pilot script and a set of synopsis based on your theme and idea 'ithout saying! :)

(. )et a good design or animation house to design a set of characters for your cartoon series *ere is the one problem area. +n some cases if not most cases this $ill take a lot of money. +f you look here e&en on this board so many people are not $illing to collab at all due to the high ideas but not going any$here factor lea&ing them burned. *o$ did you o&ercome this hurdle, + kno$ ho$ + o&ercame them but ho$ $ould others o&ercome them. -tep . goes $ithout saying

/. 'ith a character bible0 you can approach an animation house and ask them to produce a teaser or a pilot episode based on the series Do you ha&e a list of animation houses looking for pro1ects and $ho $ould produce %-. minutes $ithout the "20222 dollar a minute price tag at the least, 3. 4rom here0 you can take t$o routes. #he first route $ould be to approach a distribution company. #his one + liked. 5ery useful for me. + thought of this before but passed it up. +6m going to re&isit this idea. asiest $ay to find them for folks reading this is find the type of film you $ant to produce. )o look at films similiar to your film and find out $ho distributed it. +t6s as easy as looking on the back of a D5D bo7 and doing a )oogle search. :) 8ou should not sign any contract at this point because you can t guarantee production of the sho$ yet. 8ou should instead ask for a letter of interest from the distributor. 'ith this letter of interest you can approach in&estors to sho$ them that a distributor $ould take your sho$. *ere in lies the problem. 'here do you find these in&estors, *o$ do you look for one, +s there a place you can go to find one, *o$ did you find your in&estors, 'ho do you approach and take it to, 5ery good approach. +6d lo&e to see you e7pand. 8our sight is no$ one of my fa&s!
