Born and raised in Colombia, Alfredo Marun moved to the United States in his early teens and quickly found his passion for filmmaking and storytelling. He is currently a Director of Development at Disney Television Animation working closely with creators to develop new animated series based on original ideas as well as Disney heritage properties. Prior to Disney, Alfredo worked at Dreamworks Animation Television developing series for different streaming platforms (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and others) including the recently premiered, KIPO AND THE AGE OF WONDERBEASTS series. With over ten years of experience in entertainment-both in live action and animation-Alfredo is always looking for unique stories that haven’t been told before and that push the envelope. He got his start in the entertainment industry working at Scott Rudin Productions before moving over to Matt Tolmach Productions. Alfredo is a proud member and advisor to LatinX In Animation, a group dedicated to empowering diversity in animation from page to post. In his spare time he enjoys cooking, volunteering at animal shelters, playing soccer and watching animated series and films.
