MARIN LEPORE is a screenwriter who's grown up in Colorado, lived in Beijing from 4th-10th grade, then moved back to finish high school in Boulder. After studying at the Colorado Film School, she is now completing a Film/TV BFA at the University of Colorado, Denver.
As a gay woman of color, Marin is passionate about minority representation in film, and her stories often highlight LGBT and POC communities; her award-winning, multi-season, comedy webseries "I Put the Bi in Bitter" being one of them. She ultimately aspires to write and work on TV shows for kids and teens.
Marin has spoken on various filmmaking panels across the country, including Denver Comic Con 2019, and ClexaCon 2019, the largest LGBT women's media convention in the world. Most recently, she was interviewed by VoyageDenver Magazine. She's also currently a board member for Women in Film and Media Colorado.
If not writing or directing, Marin also has experience with photography, production design, script supervising, editing, and pretending she knows how to animate.
Besides film, Marin enjoys skating, playing violin, loving turtles, and eating Chipotle. Her favorite quote in the entire world is: "Before time flew it was an egg; going nowhere." -Anonymous
