Little Airplane Productions is set to run its popular three-day pre-school workshop again next month.

The course - How to Make a Great Pre-School Series - runs from August 14th to 16th at Little Airplane's studios in New York. During the workshop, participants will learn the fundamentals of creating a pre-school series from pitching through to writing, character design, directing and producing both live action and animated shows.

The courses will be taught by members of Little Airplane, including founder Josh Selig (pictured), head of production Tom Brown and music director Jeffrey Lesser.

David Kleeman, president of the American Center for Children and Media, will present a 'Prix Jeunesse Suitcase' in which he will screen and discuss films from around the world. In addition, a panel discussion will look at overall trends in pre-school programming, while focusing on the dos and don'ts of pitching to a network.

"The Little Airplane Academy has become the industry standard for both newcomers who want to learn the fundamentals of pre-school television and seasoned pros who are looking to continue their professional development," said Selig. "It is a completely immersive three days, taught by some of the best in the business and we welcome delegates from overseas who want to gain a greater understanding of the US market."
