Screenwriter Pietro Schito

Pietro Schito

Screenwriter
Pietro Schito’s passion for animation began in childhood when he created his first stop-motion film with his parents’ camcorder. Born in Milan, Italy, he worked in television production before moving across the ocean to Mexico where he discovered a vibrant animation community fostered by Guillermo del Toro. His desire to write animated feature films brought him to Los Angeles to complete the New York Film Academy Screenwriting Program. In 2018 he founded Write for Animation, a community and YouTube channel where he shares screenwriting insights from the animation industry. Currently, Pietro is co-writing three animated feature films for different studios including Thingdom, directed by René Castillo. If you’re looking for a writer who knows the ins and out of animation and thrives in the atmosphere of creative teamwork, Pietro would love to hear from you.
