Nickelodeon Writing Fellowship Program

Description

Developed to broaden Nickelodeon’s outreach efforts, the Nickelodeon Writing Program is designed to attract, develop and staff writers with diverse backgrounds and experiences on Nickelodeon Network productions. Operating in a three-phased structure, the Program provides a salaried position for up to one year and offers hands-on experience writing spec scripts and pitching story ideas in both live action and animation television. As part of their script writing, each writer will be assigned to an Executive in Charge of Production and have an opportunity to write a spec script for an on-air Nickelodeon show. In addition, all writers are integrated into the activities of both the development and production departments. This allows the writers an opportunity to attend storyboard pitches, notes meetings, records, table reads, show pitches and show tapings; all while being exposed to top creators and key production crews.

Support Provided

This three-phased structure allows writers an opportunity to nurture relationships with creators, network executives, line producers, head writers, show runners and story editors.

Description
Operating in a three-phased structure, the Fellowship provides a salaried position for six months and offers hands-on experience working with established storyboard artists, background designers, character designers and more. As part of their development, each artist will be assigned to a production and mentored by Lead Artists who supervise in the storyboard, character and background design departments. Artists will also be guided in advancing their portfolio and becoming equipped with a professional skill set. The Artist Fellowship also offers artists a chance to understand the depth of their new skills, refine and strengthen key areas, and apply them in our real world environment.
 
In addition, all artists are integrated into the activities of the productions to which they are assigned. This allows the artist an opportunity to complete production relevant assignments designated by their mentor, to attend storyboard pitches, take animation tests, develop their portfolio and pitching skills, and are encouraged to interact with a writer from the Writing Fellowship. Artists will also be able to showcase their artwork in the Nickelodeon Art Gallery.

Support Provided
Developed to broaden Nickelodeon's outreach efforts, the Nickelodeon Artist Fellowship is designed to nurture the development of emerging and diverse artists for positions within the Nickelodeon Animation Studio, while supporting their growth as creative visionaries.
