Marie Cheng talks about choosing to be a story teller over going to business school, the long journey through film school, playing the intern and production assistant game, working hard as a core value, how to find the right creative community in Hollywood, how to teach yourself to write scripts, learning improv at Upright Citizens Brigade and how to write animated TV scripts for DreamWorks and Nickelodeon. Some of Marie's past credits include working on shows like The Adventures of Puss and Boots and Harvey Girls Forever! on Netflix.
Marie Cheng is a comedy writer-performer based in Los Angeles. As the first in her family born in the U.S., she gravitates toward fish-out-of-water stories and good boba. She grew up in Huntington Beach, CA, and graduated from Chapman's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts with a BFA in Animation. She also studied abroad in Florence, Italy, and won't stop talking about it.
She loves curly fries and animals that look like bread. Here is a link to Marie's award-wining senior thesis film, Volcano!, just for fun.
