Adam Pava wrote the stop-motion hit The Boxtrolls, which earned a 2015 Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature. He currently has projects in development at Laika, Warner Brothers, Fox, and Dreamworks Animation, and is writing a sequel for The Lego Movie franchise.

Before transitioning to movies, Adam spent 10 years in television. In 2006, he co-wrote and executive produced the hybrid live-action/animation TV movie Re-Animated, Cartoon Network’s highest rated TV movie at the time.  He has written for Cartoon Network (Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends, Johnny Bravo), Adult Swim (Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law), MTV (Clone High), Nickelodeon (Glenn Martin DDS), Dreamworks TV, and the Jim Henson Company.
