LeFauve’s experience in producing and screenwriting spans more than two decades. She produced “The Baby Dance,” which was nominated for an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and won a Peabody Award. Later, she wrote Oscar-nominated Disney Pixar films “Inside Out” and “The Good Dinosaur” and penned the story for Marvel Studios “Captain Marvel.”

Graham is a seasoned digital media producer, writer, and filmmaker and produces LeFauve’s podcast that she co-hosts with Lorien McKenna, “The Screenwriting Life.” He also currently produces and co-hosts the podcasts “Better Together With Maria Menounos” and “The Film Scene w/ Ileana Douglas.” His films include “Always, Lola” and “Under the Influence.”

The pair will headline a panel discussion for writers interested in expanding upon pre-existing stories and scripts to give their characters and plots more time to grow and shine.
