Due December 9th, 2019 - Produce a wildly original and hilarious 3-5 minute pilot for SYFY's late-night TZGZ adult animation comedy block.

You were probably on board the moment you saw "late-night animation," but wait, it gets better: this is TZGZ, SYFY's adult animation comedy block - a dank new hybrid of sci-fi, fantasy, and funny - and SYFY wants you to create original animated shorts for it.

TZGZ is hilarious, irreverent, self-aware, and playful, and it's where you can expect to meet wild characters like demon porn stars, singing space possums, and bong-smoking wizards. If you love genre content and you're an animator - 2D, 3D, stop-motion, claymation, papercraft, whatever - they're giving you free rein to play around in SYFY's mind-bending sandbox. Intrigued? Hell yeah you are.

This will begin as a pitch qualification project. You'll be required to provide a 500 character summary of why you and/or your team are a great fit for this project (i.e. past experience or credits, unique style & execution, your unmatched wit), along with a 500 character synopsis of the animated short that you want to create. 6 animators will be selected from the pitch qualification phase and paid $750 each to create a full pitch, including a script, detailing their creative vision for the animated short. Up to 3 pitches will be selected to go to pilot.

The budget range for your pilot should fall between $5,000 to $15,000 per minute of animation, and know that, if you crush it, the door is open to additional episode orders.
