I created a series of online animated shorts for Dreamworks online early last year. They are all ages friendly and contain plenty of inside jokes for us kid lit folks. Saying I created the show is confusing. What did I actually do? I came up with the concept and worked with the executive at Dreamworks to develop it. I wrote the episodes, designed the characters, cast the voice actors, directed the voice sessions, edited the soundtrack, hired the composer who created the theme music, made an animatic, created the characters in multiple pieces so they could be animated and the show was finally matched to the animatics and animated in Los Angeles by a small animation company. I'm happy with how it turned out, though I would have liked more time, or slightly more money so I could have outsourced some of the work. It was, obviously, a lot of work. A lot of steps. I love animation so I can't complain. But when I say I  'created it'. I think... does that really get at all the tasks involved?
