From Idea to Pitch

Developing your animation concept into a pitchable product
Featuring Stu Connolly from Sticky Pictures

We all have ideas, but the challenge lies in developing those ideas. Character development, artwork, scripts and even a pilot can all be part of a good pitch. Stu will be running through his exploits in this field and offering real advice to fellow creators.

Stu will be joined by Sticky’s Development Executive Michael Drake

Stu is an award-winning animation writer, editor and producer.
First starting as a music journalist, Stu moved into freelance animation writing in 1999, scripting and developing animated series for Australian studios while co-creating and writing pilots for Cartoon Network Europe, Disney and Nickelodeon Australia.

Stu is a founding partner of Sydney production company Sticky Pictures, named Children’s TV Producer of the Year by the Screen Producers Association of Australia (2011).

Sticky produces animated and live action comedy for all audiences. Their shows on air include AACTA nominated Sammy J & Randy in Ricketts Lane, Me & My Monsters, Pearlie, The Dukes of Bröxstônia, Dennis the Menace & Gnasher and Pirate Express. Sticky’s new animated series for ABC3, Winston Steinburger & Sir Dudley Ding Dong, will premiere later this year.

Stu is actively involved in developing Sticky’s projects from a scripting perspective as well as story editing and producing. Stu co-created CJ the DJ and is co-creator/writer/producer and director (3rd season) of award winning The Dukes of Bröxstônia (SPAA Best Children’s Production 2013).
