Marc Haimes

Screenplay Writer, KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS - Laika

Sharing early character sketches, screenshots of the treatment & first draft, and clips of the movie itself, Marc Haimes will detail the intensive creative process that gave birth to the critically-aclaimed animated movie from Laika: KUBO & THE TWO STRINGS. Referencing his background as senior story and production executive for Dreamworks live action and his early years as a comic book collector and player of Dungeons & Dragons, Haimes will focus specifically on nurturing a spirit of creativity in yourself and your work. He will discuss strategies for carrying that creative spirit into collaboration with other writers, artists, directors, producers, and executives… and the subtle interplay between vision and compromise when endeavoring to tell a more challenging and thematic story in a commercially-driven environment.
