AUGUSTUS SCHIFF - WRITER

BIO

A practiced introvert and avid nerd, Augustus enjoys writing all things comedic and fantastical. After graduating with a B.A. in History from the University of Chicago in 2017 and swearing off future scholastic programs, he came back home to Los Angeles. Here, his pursuit of screenwriting led to an MFA from UCLA in 2021, proving his past self a damn liar. His vaguely autobiographical feature *weird won the 2021 UCLA Screenwriters Showcase Best Feature Comedy.

When he’s not writing, Augustus enjoys cooking (which his roommates have taken significant advantage of), playing Dungeons and Dragons with his friends, and taking care of Godzilla, his 12 year old, four pound dog.
