'Despicable Me 2' & 'The Croods' Screenplays Available For Your Consideration

despicable me 2 the croods screenplays for your considerationAnimation is a special breed of film, including screenwriting for animated films. Most animated films are developed in-house, and if writers are hired from outside, they are typically hired to fill an open writing assignment for a story that the studio has already developed. Nevertheless, the screenplay for an animated film is extremely important as every visual and audio element of the story has to be created essentially from nothing. To give us a better understanding how screenplays for animated films translate to the screen, we have screenplays from two of the most successful animated films of 2013: Despicable Me 2 and The Croods.

As if you could avoid the minions even if you don't have kids, here's the trailer to Despicable Me 2:

A more surprising animated hit from this past spring, here's the trailer for The Croods:

I was walking by a park a few days ago and noticed a bunch of folks with their lawn chairs watching some kids animation flick. Tons of youngsters running around too. Some were so young they were barely walking (and paying no attention to the action on the screen). Off the system's speakers, you could hear the dialog quite ways and what immediately struck me was the quick sequence of the exchanges. Every character's turn was no longer than a sentence. Reading the "Croods" just reminded me of "one and done" concept of children animation.

And, by the way, this is a billion dollar movie, not even counting the merchandising.
