Zac Atkinson – Screenwriter

I grew up building computers and robots. Then, in my early twenties, I decided to pursue screenwriting as a profession. Now, people hire me to write stories about computers and robots. And gnomes.

Gnomes are cool.

Currently, I spend my days writing full-time. Mostly I write screenplays, and mostly they’re for animated TV shows. I also sometimes teach an online animation writing course. I live in Los Angeles with my wonderful wife, a closet full of plaid shirts, and our extremely fuzzy and extremely annoying cat. Occasionally, the cat lets me sleep and have sweet, sweet dreams about cookies and gnomes.

What? I told you… gnomes are cool.

If you’re curious about what I’ve done in Hollywood, here’s a list of credits.

If you’d like to hear some tales of my travels, please check out the blog area. In addition to being a screenwriter, I also have previously worked as a writers’ assistantscript coordinator, and production assistant.

And if you’re wondering about this glorified lollipop tree thing, here is an explanation.
