About Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio:
Upon graduating from high school, KEN DAURIO began directing music videos for up-and-coming bands like Blink 182, AFI and Jimmy Eat World. More than 100 music videos later, he teamed up with Cinco Paul to write his first feature script.
Daurio met Paul while working on a church musical and they bonded immediately. In 1999, they sold their first screenplay, Special, which they later turned into a short film that played the festival circuit due to its dark comedic story line. Next came the 2001 cult classic Bubble Boy, which starred Jake Gyllenhaal as Jimmy Livingston (a boy without an immune system), a twisted take on the John Travolta television movie The Boy in the Plastic Bubble.
Daurio and Paul are now one of Hollywood’s most sought-after screenwriting teams. As 3D productions are on the way to becoming the norm, they are right on trend with two high-profile 3D animated films on their résumé. They are the hot Hollywood screenwriting team who penned Despicable Me for Illumination Entertainment/Universal Pictures and Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! for executive Chris Meledandri during his tenure at 20th Century Fox. Paul and Daurio had the distinct honor of being handpicked by Audrey Geisel (the widow of Theodor Seuss Geisel) to pen the Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax film projects on behalf of the estate of Dr. Seuss.
Daurio and Paul are currently working on Despicable Me 2.
