About her career
Lepore was around five years old when she first became interested in stop-motion.
She would watch Jim Henson’s Behind the Scene specials, and she felt like everyone working there had the coolest job on the planet.
She was constantly drawing and sculpting little creations in the back of her head. She only began experimenting with stop-motion after she went to college.
She graduated from Maryland Institute College of Arts before graduating in Experimental Animation at CalArts.
According to Lepore, after she graduated from MICA, she wasn't sure if she wanted to pursue a graduate degree, so she did freelance in animation for two years before joining CalArts.
She needed some time after undergrad to prove to herself that she could make a living from doing animation. It was at CalArts where she made Bottle.
She said she got hooked after her first film.
For her, it seemed like it was the best way to combine all her passion for sculpture, sound, and storytelling into one medium.
Her husband-directed movie “Everything Everywhere All At Once” took home 7 Oscars
A proud moment for Lepore and the whole team of “Everything Everywhere All At Once,” the 2022 movie written and directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as Daniels, who took home 7 Oscars out of 11 nominations becoming the best science fiction movie ever to win the best picture and taking three of the four acting awards.
Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert met at Emmerson College in Boston, where they both were studying films, but they initially hated each other.
Though they were roommates and had one animation class together, they only became close friends after college.
They hit it off instantly after they both landed a job at summer camp. That was the time when they hung out together and eventually shot a short film together.
They initially started writing music videos together.
Their manager was sending them scripts, and none of them were clicking in a way that was inspiring then, or it didn't feel like they wanted to spend years on other people's scripts, so they were like they had to try on themselves.
They started with their music videos which were for fun, but suddenly it became their career.
In the process, they learned how to work together, and it was an amazing way to practice together.
They would get a song from a record label where they would tell them the parameters and would be given three to four days to come up with the idea.
It helped them to generate ideas fast. It all started from there, and the rest is history.
Her net worth is estimated at around $1 million to $3 million.
- She was born in March 1985 in New Jersey, United States. She is currently 38 years old.
