Biography

A former Jim Henson employee who cut his teeth on "The Muppet Show" (ITV/syndicated, 1976-1981), John Stevenson worked his way through the film and television animation ranks as a storyboard artist and consultant on a wide variety of acclaimed projects, including "Toy Story 2" (1999), "Shrek" (2001) and "Madagascar" (2005). After joining DreamWorks as its Head of Story, Stevenson contributed to some of its biggest features, as well as a few of its costliest misses, including the misguided television series, "Father of the Pride" (NBC, 2004). While serving as director on that series, he became involved in DreamWorks' feature "Kung Fu Panda," which he and co-director Mark Osbourne eventually shepherded to screens in 2008. The film's worldwide success and wealth of award nominations was proof positive that Stevenson was among the top animation filmmakers working in the genre.
