An entertaining and informative Masterclass exploring how ‘Phineas and Ferb’ went from concept to international success…in only 15 years!  In an overview of the series we’ll hear more about the premise, characters, and the target audience versus the real audience.  Swampy will discuss some of the creative philosophies in making the show and give valuable insight into the creative process itself.  We’ll discover first hand how the focus on visually driven storytelling works in practice – from outline to board, to pitching the board – to the importance of the animatic in gauging comedy and story.    Exploring music and voices along the way, and a truly collaborative approach to producing the best possible stories; this is a great opportunity to glean some of the finer details in creating an award winning animated series from one of the top creative professionals in the business.  Bring along your burning questions!
