Pat has written screenplays for Touchstone Pictures, Witt-Thomas Productions, and Disney’s animation division. She’s also worked as a story consultant for Disney/Pixar as part of their ‘Brain Trust.’
She wrote and directed the feature film True Crime, and her writing credits also include documentary shorts for HBO and Showtime. She co-produced Somewhere Between, a feature documentary about four teenaged girls adopted from China, and is currently a script editor (development consultant) on several feature projects for Film Victoria in Australia. She’s a mentor for the Meryl Streep IRIS/New York Women in Film and Television’s Writer’s Lab, and teaches screenwriting in the MFA program at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television.
After writing and drawing for the Harvard Lampoon, Lillian Yu started her career as many risk-averse Asians do: working in a stable job with excellent health insurance. But in this stable job as a strategist at Google, she quickly realized that she, to quote Gob Bluth, "made a huge mistake." She hightailed it for Hollywood and worked as an assistant at a film finance company before transitioning to development executive at STX and Illumination. After a few years of almost throwing her computer out the window because it's impossible to get a movie made, she finally grew the balls to write herself. On the TV side, she has written for NBC's POWERLESS and Cinemax's WARRIOR. On the feature side, she has worked at Warner Brothers under a blind deal, done punch-up on CRAZY RICH ASIANS, and most recently, sold her spec, SINGLES DAY, to New Line Cinema.
