How do you want to submit your project?

 

Submit privately

looking for projects with unique, grounded characters that kids will relate to. These characters should drive stories in unusual worlds or environments, or offer a fresh perspective on our world. For animated series, we love distinct and varied visual designs.

 

Preschool series must have an educational theme, or the potential for one. All children's series ideas must include a mini-bible between two and six pages. This should describe the series in general, and its main characters; tell where the series is going and whether episodes are serial or standalone; and include five or six episode ideas. Children’s series can be 11 or 22 minutes, live action, animated, stop motion, or mixed media.

 

Pilot scripts can be live action or animated and should be under 30 minutes long. We encourage single-cam scripts to be under 36 single-spaced pages.

 

How do I upload my series idea?

Open the link here to send it directly to the S2e TV Network's Corporate Site. Please make certain your Title is listed in the subkect line, along with the author name and any brief description of what you are sending us.

 

What do I need to submit a new series idea?

A children's series proposal must include a mini-description. This should describe the series in general, and its main characters; tell where the series is going and whether episodes are serial or standalone; and include five or six episode ideas. We encourage mini-bibles to be between two and six pages.

 

How do I know whether to credit a character designer?

If your new series idea is illustrated with character drawings or sketches in your mini-bible, you must identify the artist who brought the characters to life. The character designer defines a visual style reference used by animators creating episodes of an animated series.

 

Can I submit video content?

If you have video such as a storyboard, animation test, or pilot, you’re encouraged to send that as well. You must have full rights to the series idea you are submitting, and identify the series creators (e.g., writers and character designers) at the time of upload.

 

How should my script be formatted?

All submissions should be in standard script format, with Courier 12-point font and standard script margins. Here are some general guidelines:

 

Page size: 8-1/2 by 11 inches

Page margins: No less than 1.5 inches (left) and 1 inch (right, top, bottom)

Scene heading (slugline): 1.5-2 inches

Action: 1.5-2 inches

Dialogue: 2.5-3 inches

Character names: centered

 

Dialogue should be single spaced for single-camera series or double spaced for multi-camera series. For single-cam, we encourage scripts to be 36 pages or fewer; for multi-cam, 54 pages or fewer.

 

What file format should I use?

You may submit your script as a PDF. This may make it easier for you to format your script, and for others to read and review it.

 

You may also submit your script in .rtf file format. Saving your script in .rtf format allows it to be opened and edited in all word-processing applications and facilitates collaboration.
