Thank you so much for reaching out. Speaking with passionate people about kids & media is one of the perks of my job. However, some common questions that I am typically asked can be found right here. Please check those out for an instant response.

I would love to get into creating content for children, but I don’t know how to start. Any tips?

 

Here are my clues:

  • Research Your Idea –

    • Have a great idea?
    • Is it based on what is out there now?
    • A gap in the marketplace?  If so, why is it missing?
    • What does your idea say to the world?
    • Why would kids need it or parents want it for their kids?
    • What’s the distinguishing feature of your idea.  
  • Know your audience – 
    • what age child are you writing for?  Once you identify this – hang out with them, play with them, get inspiration from them about how to approach your idea.
  • Why YOU are the only one who could do this idea –

    • So many people have ideas, but those that succeed have passion, grit, a strong vision, and years of research making them the expert – the ideal person to bring this idea to fruition.  
  • Make It, Do it, Test it-
    • Write the book.
    • Write the script.
    • Film an episode.
    • Upload it.
    • Do anything to make your idea a reality.
    • The more info you have and the more feedback you get, the more likely your idea will gain traction.  
  • Get an Agent or Lawyer –
    • Once you have an idea, vet it by an Entertainment Agent or Lawyer and see if they will represent you to the networks
    • Have your resume handy so they know what role you will play in the pitching process, creation, and production of your content.  
How do I get in touch with a network or media company to share my thoughts about one of your programs?

 

THANK YOU!  The more everyone reaches out the more likely we can keep making good, quality content with results!  Also, I LOVE when you share your stories (and your kids’ stories)  with social media!

I've got THE idea! Can you read my script or watch my animation so we can work together on this?

Rest assured, from time to time we’ll put out an RFP – request for proposals.  I will put that out on my social media channels and here on AngelasClues.com. At that point, I’d LOVE to review the magic that you’re creating! Until then, I am unfortunately unable to review work.

Thank you for reaching out!

I have a great idea for a preschooler’s book, program, app, etc. How do I go about getting it picked up?
