Pietro Schito was born and raised in Milan, Italy. His interest in animation began at the age of seven, when he met a few animators from Disney and soon started creating stop-motion films with his parents’ camcorder. In his twenties, after having worked in television production, he moved to Mexico and the United States and completed the Screenwriting Program at the New York Film Academy’s Universal Studios branch. In 2018 he founded Write For Animation, a community and YouTube channel where he shares screenwriting insights from the animation industry. Pietro is currently co-writing three animated feature films for different studios.
