Experienced animation show creators, including Dean Stefan (Matchbox Big Rig Buddies, Quack Pack), Craig Miller (Curious George, Beast Wars: Transformers), Nicole Dubuc (Young Justice, Transformers: Rescue Bots), and Andrew Robinson (Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters, Young Justice), take suggestions called out by people in the audience, first for a genre, then for a main character, then other characters to add, then the world it takes place in. This is a combination of actual show creation and a sort of improv game. It's a take on how a show is created-all the elements you must consider, such as what age group it's for, why the idea of it being about this or that would be too expensive, or why it can't take place on water if it's CGI.
