Marc Haimes

Screenplay Writer, KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS - Laika

For the past few years, Marc Haimes has approached the craft of screenwriting with the mentality of an athlete, looking for every possible (legal) way to enhance performance. He has analyzed the periods in his life when he was most prolific in his output and successful in moving projects forward. He has experimented with wake-up time, caffeine consumption, length of writing sessions, best places for creative incubation, music, meditation, brainstorming software, and even the color of the walls in his office. His workshop will introduce some of his favorite strategies for living a life that gives you the best chance at producing high level material. He will then work with the group to apply some of these strategies towards creating a beat sheet and “breaking” a story for the screen. His goal is that people will leave the workshop with a clear sense of what they want to write next and a feeling of excitement about bringing that story onto the page with confidence and passion.
