I went to the School of Visual Arts in NYC. You don’t have to go to CalArts to work at CN. It’s close by so there are a lot of CalArts graduates working at California studios(go figure!)… But so many of the artists working here didn’t go any particular school. Don’t make assumptions that put roadblocks in front of your dream. You deserve better than that!!
keep working. make your own comics and cartoons and show it to as many people as you can. keep being a fan of things and work hard on learning from people you admire and follow in their footsteps. don’t say “no” to opportunity and try your absolute hardest when you get a chance.
Whoa neat! Thanks for choosing SU to be part of your project!
Unfortunately though, Steven Universe is not created from scripts- Our show doesn’t have any script writers- We have two talented story editors who first create flexible premises and outlines of story beats, which set the tone and general plot.
Beyond that, all of the writing and dialogue is handled by storyboard artists. Because Steven Universe has a lot of visual jokes, stylized action sequences & specific character expressions it would be impossible for it to be scripted- you NEED drawings to write the story.
After this process, the story editors come back in and help edit the dialogue, police continuity, and tighten the story.
From my personal experience, cartoons with extensive visual humor are more easily created from storyboards, not scripts- it’s also how they make Adventure Time, Regular Show and most CN original comedies going all the way back to the Hanna-Barbera days.
(P.S. I also worked on Venture Bros, which was created from scripts, but most of that show’s jokes were verbal. Scripts are that show’s strength.)
so tokyo is hosting the 2020 olympics just like akira predicted. i hope they do akira themed events such as: motorcycle fights, government overthrowing, and of course the classic mutating into a giant beast and destroying the world.
