CBBC Anim8 – Animation Pilot Scheme open for submissions

Get Your Creative on with Anim8!

CBBC and BBC Worldwide’s first animation pilot scheme

Do you have the new Strange Hill High, Gumball or Adventure Time?

If so, they want to hear from you!

In collaboration with BBC Worldwide, CBBC have launched a brand new animation initiative, an amazing opportunity to develop the next generation of UK animation giants.

This exciting partnership will offer UK innovators the chance to pitch for funded development. With time, this will lead to the creation of a range of UK animated properties that have genuine global appeal.

What are they looking for?

They are looking for new content which is original, character driven, fast-paced, funny and has great kid appeal. CBBC is all about having fun with friends, so they are looking for compelling content that is energetic, unpredictable and up-beat with a unique take on contemporary life.

The characters and storylines need to be appropriate to a global and CBBC audience of 6-12+ year olds. The characters can be human or non-human and should have a mindset similar to the CBBC audience. They would encounter relatable situations, however bizarre the world they inhabit!

All ideas must be able to sustain 26 or 52 x short form / 7 / 11 / 22 minute episodes with an innate returnability, and must have both commercial potential and international appeal. They are NOT looking for one hour specials or one-off shows.

They are open to all animation styles and techniques, including mixed-media and are keen to push visual boundaries if the project benefits. However, they are NOT about style over content.

Find out full details on the Anim8 website including FAQs, Rules and Terms and Conditionsdetails of how to apply, what kinds of materials you need to submit, key dates and contacts for more information.

The fully funded pilot will have been produced and delivered no later than Friday, 2nd September 2016!

Deadline: 22 January 2016 at Midnight
