A Project Scoping Course

by The Happy Producers

Bidding and project scoping are the most impactful skills you can acquire.

These highly in-demand skills can propel your career forward and help you land a coveted position, attract dream projects, and future-proof your position in the industry, even in uncertain times.

Call me LP!

My name is Louis-Philippe Vermette, I am an executive producer with 25 years of experience in the animation industry.

When I started my career, I had no idea how learning bidding and scoping animation would impact me. 

Over the past few years alone, despite industry fluctuations, I used these skills to help bring over 30 million dollars in animation projects while securing half a million dollars in revenues for myself.

And this is possible for you, too!

Case study - 10 Lives, feature film

This is a real-life example of how I applied my bidding and scoping strategy on the feature film 10 Lives, which premiered at Sundance in January 2024.

  • I listened to the director's must-haves.
  • I ensured the budget supported the story and characters' narrative arc.
  • I helped highlight, through the bidding process, elements that were overly costly for their on-screen importance.
  • I inspired everyone to make the best choices for the film based on solid data and metrics that supported the creative process.

 

“Louis Philippe did more than just contribute - he was the cornerstone of common sense and a wonderful creative collaborator. It was his calm appreciation for the creative direction that made this movie possible.”

-Chris Jenkins,
Writer and Director, 10 Lives feature film

About Your Instructors

Call me LP!

I am an artist that became a leader. I started my journey in animation 25 years ago, and I did not expect what life had in store for me!

From storyboard artist to executive producer, I experienced every aspect of animation production.

With my partner Virginie, we founded The Happy Producers to offer our experience and help other growth-seeking leaders find their way toward human-driven leadership without compromising the people or the project.

In addition to my mission as a Happy Producer, I am the Canadian co-producer of 10 Lives in collaboration with GFM Animation and the line producer of The Last Whale Singer, a Canadian/German/Czech co-production.

I put my experience at the service of everyone in my productions, and I wish to offer you the same insight and positive attitude I offer my colleagues daily.
