So, what do you think of the logo? I think it works pretty good. I even made a cartoon poster to the series, like you'd see in many fully formed cartoons. I've also gotten an overwhelming amount of support that wants to see this project fully realized in one way or another, including many people wanting to be a part of this project in some way or another. So, I decided to make a few processes for auditions in each discipline. Starting with writer.

Writer
I want this one to be very, very difficult to get accepted. The basic rule is that you need to write a script in the same format as the pilot and it must be between 1800-2100 words. I am going to give you five "episodes" to choose from. Pick one of them. Each one of them is given a possible glaring pitfall that you must avoid. I'm also assuming that you know the basic concept of the show. If you need more details about the characters, don't be afraid to ask any questions about them. In fact, here's everything I know about each of the characters: docs.google.com/document/d/1_x… (it's read only).
  • Test Episode 1: Party Night -- the kids decide to throw a huge party. It's too bad that the adults have a test tomorrow. Your challenge is to keep the kids from being unlikeable in this scenario.
  • Test Episode 2: Jump and Jam -- Sally gets an annoying CD from her favorite boy band. Your challenge is to keep Sally from being unlikeable and not to annoy the audience. Take as many jabs at Family Guy that you'd like.
  • Test Episode 3: The Sitter -- Linda and Robert get a sitter that takes full advantage of kids' advantages over parents. Your job is to not make Pet Sitter Pat.
  • Test Episode 4: Blame it On the Sprain -- When Robert breaks his leg he takes advantage of his family's hospitality. Your job is to not make Robert unlikeable and to not make it a cliche story.
  • Test Episode 5: Little Electric Lies -- When Linda spreads lies about herself on the internet, she becomes popular in school. Your job is not to use any liar revealed cliches.
Title Card Artist
What happened to good title cards man? I mean besides Adventure Time and Spongebob there really aren't anymore. I mean, it's a nice touch that shows you're going the extra mile with your cartoon. You have two options (well six)

Voice Actor/Actress
Simple. Read off a few lines of any of the characters you want to voice. Try to get as many tones/emotions as possible, especially if you're trying to voice Sally. Put it in a YouTube video and then send me a DeviantArt note to it. Do not send me a YouTube PM since Google+ dun broke the inbox. If there was a less convoluted way of doing this, I'd be glad to hear it.

Musician
Here are the lyrics to the theme song. Put it in a song. Any genre that you think would fit. Watch my Top 20 Opening Themes list and get inspired (focus on somewhere between Chip and Dale and Kim Possible.)

In a world where kids rule, you send your parents to school

Have you ev'r wanted to put your parents to bed?

Buy yourself a pony, or just dye your whole head?

You can stay up late and party all night all night long

And nothing you do is wrong, come with us, play along


It's in a world where down is up and up is down,

Around here we're all here just growing all around,


Growing around!



Animators
I can't worry about animators until after we got voice actors, unless you want to make an animation about what you think the title sequence might be like. That's all I got right now :/

I posted this awhile ago, but I forgot to open up the doc to anyone with the link. Sorry about that. Here is a copy of my old post.

"Here's my attempt at writing an episode. It's an early draft, and it doesn't quite fit the word length because I wasn't sure of what else I could add and didn't want too much unnecessary padding. It's for Test Episode 2, with a little bit of Test Episode 1 mixed in. Please let me know what you think. Even if you don’t use it, I would appreciate any feedback (are the characters likeable enough? Distinct enough? Is there a way for me to make it longer without going the SpongeBob You're Fired route?) Thank you. "

I would love to audition to be the writer for the theme song, but the main concern that I have is that I do not want the theme song's style not to fit with the piece of art which you are creating. Since this a show about kids having the role of adults, and vice-versa, what kind of genre for the piece would you want to have?

Outsider's Perspective: That was really good, story-wise and humor-wise.
There were a few moments, though, where I couldn't really tell the difference between the adults and the kids, to the point where some of the more childish dialogue felt a bit shoe-horned in.

Dear Mr. Enter,
a lot of ideas just come to my mind for "Growing Around" and I would really like to share them if you don't mind.

Plus, how much time is left to write an episode for Growing Around? I would like to know if I still have enough time.

Here are some ideas that came to mind for "Growing Around" (Sorry this is so long)

1. I was thinking to myself, "Why would adults need to be taught stuff that kids do like make water balloons and mud? I'm sure they would already know how to do this stuff since they were kids before. And then this idea came to my head: What if the school is teaching stuff like this not because adults don't know about this stuff but rather because the school is trying to get adults to be like kids again? Also, what if kids rule the world because being childish is the ideal way in life or something? What if being mature is thought of as a bad thing by society?

2. This idea is rather dark. What if something extremely bad would happen if an adult quit or failed school simply because " what they teach at school isn't important"? My idea was that if that happens with an adult, they would become slaves of this secret company and be forced to build the buildings, cars, anything heavy and large in mass. I was thinking that the kids would be responsible for building this stuff but I kind of doubt that their small weak bodies could carry the supplies needed to build towers and huge candy shops nor the wit to figure out how to hold everything together; they would probably need the help of the adults (I'm not entirely sure how their world works yet).

3. What if Linda's grades are slipping not because she bad at school or anything but rather because she doesn't see the importance of what the school teaches? (I assume they're teaching stuff that the adults probably have already done when they were kids).

4. The world: What if the buildings and cars looked like they were designed by kids? I'm sure that kids would design something abstract and wacky. I can imagine that the blueprints are crayon drawings.
  • Kid bars: There kind of like bars and adult clubs but designed for kids; having children entertainment like video games, pillow fights, and ice cream. The kids bars (or whatever name to call them) are also like tree houses and it's also age restricted. " Sorry fellas, you must be thirteen year old or younger to enter our club. No boring adults allowed."
5. Episodes:
  • I think there should be an episode that revolves around Timmy's fear of aging. I haven't thought of the story for it though.
  • The Sitter (my version): Synopsis: The kids are tired of the adults "messing up" the house when they're not home. The kids go out of town and leaves the adults with a sitter. (lets call the sitter "guy" for now). Guy is greedy and plans to use his authority to his advantage. Guy starts using everyone's stuff without their permission and his excuse is because "he's the sitter". He doesn't think their stuff is enough and wants more. Guy tries to order the adults to help him rob stores when the stores are closed but the adults refuse to help; unfortunately, Guy has a group of other adults that he can use to force Robert and Linda into helping him. It turns out that the sitter is a criminal who pretends to be a sitter in order to use his authority to get adults into helping him rob stores using the adults' wit and strength to his advantage. Guy and the adults begin robbing store after store until Guy has a bunch of toys, candy, etc. The last place the sitter wants to rob is the Kid Bar. They go to the kid bar when it's open. The Kid Bar is for ages thirteen and younger so the sitter tries to sneak just Robert and or Linda in. Sally and Timmy are at the Kid Bar; they notice that their parents are there with the sitter. Robert and Linda keep quite about whats going on because they're afraid that the sitter will use his small army of adults against the kids if they said anything. Guy, the sitter, tries to make up a lie/excuse but unfortunately for him, one of the adults reveal his plan. The sitter gets all of the adults to break into the Kid Bar and keep all of the kids out of the way while he makes Robert and Linda bag up his lute. All of the adults realize that they all have an advantage over children so they all turn against the sitter. The sitter gets arrested, the adults clean up the mess that was made at the Kid Bar, and the kids no longer give Linda and Robert a sitter or do they? Hopefully, the incident at the Kid Bar doesn't become the spark of...
6. The Adult Rebellion: What if someone saw that adults have an advantage over children and forms a rebellion? This would later lead into a civil war between kids and adults. The adults would have their wit and strength while the children would have a bigger army, advanced technology, tanks, planes, and the adults who didn't rebel.

7. An idea for a final episode I made up: Timmy is finally an adult and has to get ready to begin pre school and close down his lemonade business. The civil war between kids and adults only makes things worse. In the ending of the episode, everyone realizes that the world would work better if adults were in charge. A revolution is created; the adults are in charge, Timmy gets to keep his lemonade business, and everyone's life is a bit easier now.

8. Finally, my update to the pilot: When Linda tells Timmy that Robert's grades are slipping and for his punishment he has to do whatever she says, Timmy encourages Linda into making the most ridiculous and harsh punishments for Robert. Robert gets tortured from endless ridiculous punishments while Sally tries to explain to Timmy whats really going on before Robert get punished more for something he didn't do. After Robert tells Linda that she's the one who's getting the bad grades, they have their moment and Robert decides to help Linda with her school work. After Sally tells Timmy about why they lied about Robert's grades, they decide to tell Linda about the plan and punish her. When the kids let Robert decide Linda's punishment, Robert decides not to punish Linda. The moral of the story is not to punish someone for their problems but to rather help them with their problems or is the moral not to punish someone for your own problems? Also, Linda learns not to punish or put the blame on someone for her own problems.

9. Also, this is just my opinion but I think the kids should call their parents "Mom and Dad".

I finished a second draft of the test episode "Party Night." I added a scene or two, rewrote and reassigned dialogue, modified a few scenes to fit with the floor plan I'm glad I found, and tweaked the humor a tad to (hopefully) be more funny.  Altogether it comes out to 4966 words. If it's too lengthy for a twenty-two-minute episode, I'm sure there is something that could be shortened or cut out.

Yeah I got a little carried away with the length. No regrets though. It would have been too rushed if I went for eleven minutes as originally planned with the way I wrote it.
