Mara Gagnon has been working under Wes Ball and his company Oddball Entertainment for the past 4 years. Wes is most recently known for directing the Mazerunner Franchise. After getting to go on location to South Africa for Maze Runner: The Death Cure, Mara observed and studied under Wes and the line producer, Joe Hartwick, understanding what makes it to the screen, what gets cut, and why. She runs creative development for their company, reading scripts and working with writers to get their projects "studio ready." Her favorite part of the job is collaborating on ideas and helping writer's find their voices. She enjoys almost all genres, especially scripts that bend the rules of those genres, but in her work life she focuses on animation, fantasy, adventure, action, thrillers, horror, and sci-fi for the company. They currently have feature and television projects setup with major studios, as well as the ever-emerging streaming services.
