Brian Lynch is a film and comic book writer, best known for screenplays of the films Puss n Boots, Hop, and Minions.  His latest film, The Secret Life of Pets, will be released this summer.  In addition to his amazing talent, he is also a Lincroft School alumni!

Recently, a group of 5th Grade students was selected as embassadors of Lincroft School to interview Brian about his background and inspiration in the movie business.  That interview was recorded and played for the entire 5th Grade class as a kickoff to Career Day.

Thank you to all the teachers, staff, volunteers and especially Brian Lynch, who made this exciting event happen.  To see the interview, click the button below.
