Mary Coleman

Film Juror-Animated Short
Head of Creative Development, Pixar
Mary Coleman is the Senior Development Executive at Pixar Animation Studios. She joined Pixar in 1999 to create the Development department. Coleman was recruited from San Francisco’s Magic Theater because Pixar recognized that her work developing world premiers of new plays would translate well to their style of creating stories. Coleman works closely with Pixar’s directors from concept through final draft. She helps them articulate their vision, prepares them for pitches, matches them with writers, and gives feedback on outlines, treatments, and screenplay drafts.
