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

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

  • What if you could stop worrying about not being good enough and start getting positive feedback so that you know what to write next?

  • What if you could stop calling yourself an “aspiring writer” because you’re getting paid to write?

Hello, I'm Pietro Schito

An animation screenwriter working on multiple films, an animated TV series, and shorts. You might know me from my Write for Animation YouTube channel, where I post videos breaking down the work of masters of animation.

But a few years ago I almost quit…

I had read all the screenwriting books and watched all the masterclasses available, but no matter how motivated I felt when I’d sit down to write, something would always get in the way…

…and suck 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, all the way from Italy, was going to Hollywood!

There, I met some professional animation screenwriters… and slowly realized something rather unexpected.


They were going through the same frustrating experience as I was -and they’re professionals!

So, what do they do differently?

I became obsessed with finding the answer, and I noticed that successful screenwriters focused 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 to write 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…

The hard truth is that you can watch all of our videos, study all of  our guides, but if you don’t write consistently and nurture your connections, it won’t make a difference. But imagine where you could be one year from now if you bet on yourself and take action.

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.

You learn the principles that help you turn a good idea into a complete story that works.
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.
