From original and triumphant 3-D animation movies to adventurous live action movies, Hollywood screenwriter Cinco Paul is used to seeing his work come to life with one smash hit after another.  This summer, you saw Cinco’s work hit the big screen again in the highly anticipated animated film, Despicable Me 2, the sequel to the box office smash Despicable Me, which has grossed over $900 million worldwide.  For Despicable Me 2, Cinco Paul teamed up again with his writing partner Ken Daurio to bring audiences their unique vision of the film’s characters, which features an all-star cast to include Steve Carell.  Cinco Paul and his writing partner, Ken Daurio, are the hot Hollywood screenwriting team who also penned the highly successful screenplays based on the beloved Dr. Seuss' children's books The Lorax and Horton Hears a Who! in collaboration with Chris Meledandri, the founder and CEO of Illumination Entertainment.  Paul and Daurio had the distinct honor of being handpicked by Audrey Geisel (the widow of Theodor Seuss Geisel) to write the Horton Hears a Who! and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax film projects on behalf of the estate of Dr. Seuss.  Paul also wrote the lyrics for The Lorax movie, for which he received an Annie Award nomination in 2013 (along with John Powell). Paul studied at Yale University, where he graduated summa cum laude with a degree in English. You can email your questions to 123filmeasy@gmail.com Link: www.123FilmEasy.com.
