Piers Clifton is a screenwriter of children’s film and TV.
In 2017, he completed his first major screenwriting commission – a UK/Chinese CG animated movie script for producer Max Howard (producer of Igor and Executive Producer of DreamWorks’ Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, amongst many other movies).
As well as the script for Max Howard, Piers has worked on the animated movie Here Comes The Grump (as Additional Writer) – which was premiered at AFM in November 2017. He was also Additional Writer on the film LEGO Friends Girlz 4 Life.
Piers was a Creative Producer at Prime Focus Animation for four years and, before that, he worked in TV Comedy and Entertainment (during which time he did a good deal of script editing/writing). He’s also an experienced Development Producer, with a background in TV/film development at companies like Prime Focus and Wall To Wall.
Piers is an Oxford University English graduate and he’s written a children’s novel: Lawrence and the Movie-making Mutt.
His skills include writing funny dialogue… and sticking to a production brief (having worked in production himself). Piers has loved working as a writer of family movies and he’s now seeking to broaden his experience to children’s TV as well (animated and live action).
