Are you trying to break into the animation industry …alone?

  • What if you belonged to a community that helps you START and FINISH your scripts?

  • What if feedback replaced self-doubt, so you knew what to write next?

  • What if you went from ‘aspiring writer’ to ‘paid writer’?

Hello, I’m Pietro Schito

An animation screenwriter with credits in films, a TV series, and shorts. You may know me from my Write for Animation YouTube channel, where I share writing tips and host animation masters.

As a story consultant, I’ve mentored storytellers from Pixar, Netflix, Disney, and Dreamworks.

Despite my passion, there was a time I nearly quit…

Despite devouring screenwriting books and masterclasses, the daunting blank page often won. No matter how much I would try, there was always some obstacle in the way…

…and sucking me into this endless loop of procrastination:



"I know I can write this!"


"Okay, just a cup of coffee and it's go time!"


"This is the hardest thing I’ve ever done!"


"I bet real writers enjoy the process, don't they? Maybe I just don't have what it takes."


"You know what, I should rewatch that one scene it was so well written" (then I’d watch the whole movie)


"I didn't write anything good... again"


Then, I was blessed with a scholarship to study screenwriting in L.A. — I couldn’t believe that an animation nerd like me, an Italian artist, was going to Hollywood!

☝️This is me meeting Hollywood celebrities😜

In L.A., I met several professional animation screenwriters… and slowly realized something rather unexpected…


These writers were experiencing the same frustrations I was -and they’re professionals!

What do they do differently?

Successful screenwriters focus on three surprisingly simple things:




So instead of relying on discipline, I started building a writing habit.

Instead of picking up another screenwriting book, I focused on learning from the masters.

Finally, I created a system to connect with fellow writers, story artists, directors, and producers.

And little by little things started to change.

I finally started writing consistently, getting my first gigs, and meeting more and more professional writers.

I want to offer you what I was missing for far too long. That’s why I’m launching…

"Working with Pietro has resulted in the best version of a script my partner and I have been working on for years."

Mike OwensEmmy Award Winning Animation Director / co-owner of WOMO Studio

Creating my own stories was a dream I had given up on, feeling supported by Pietro and the WFA Academy members made me believe that my stories are worth being told. Every class, resource, and video call has given me new storytelling tools, motivation to be consistent, and a clearer path to achieve my dream of being part of the animation industry.

I left each video-call with a better story. When I look back at my first version, I can see the amazing job that we did together. I feel more confident than ever and I can’t wait to share my short film with the world and watch it on the big screen.

The writing sessions have helped me a lot in improving the scripts for the shorts I'm developing at Magmanimation.

I'm new to writing, but Pietro was able to skillfully guide me through the process. He helped me discover my theme, create character development, and vastly improve my story arc. Through the exercises he gave me to try, I was able to come up with a ton of new ideas. Every time I brought him the next version of my script, he was able to help me level it up.

Trevor Rothaus

Pietro is a fantastic mentor who has helped me develop engaging, thought-provoking, and visually stunning stories. His expertise in film and animation, and his support and encouragement, have been invaluable to me. I would highly recommend Pietro to anyone looking to improve their scriptwriting skills and create impactful stories.
