His screenplays have won or placed in several competitions (Nicholl, PAGE, et al).

While his WriteMovies Award winner, BURNER: A Killing in Palm Springs, a noir drama, is earning industry attention, Bob’s specialty has always been comedy (all sub-genres, including animation).

Bob also wrote 17 essays for George Lucas’s book, “Blockbusting Movies” (HarperCollins).

Testimonials: “For some years, I’ve known Bob Canning’s work as a playwright and screenwriter. Whenever I attended one of his plays or read one of his screenplays, I came away with a new respect for his work.”  — Marvin J. Levy, Exec., DreamWorks SKG/Amblin Entertainment

“BURNER: A Killing in Palm Springs is flat-out amazing and it legitimately blew me away!” — Matt Dy, Austin Film Festival

Bob Says: “Working in theater is the best training ground for collaborating (with producers, directors, actors and designers) and it makes you a team player. Working at Disney for as long as I have with various “Hollywood marketing types” tests your patience, resilience and ability to “play well with others” (It also strengthens your sense of humor.) While I take criticism well, it needs to be clear, constructive and not rambling or equivocal. Know what you want so that I know what I must write.”
