More Marc Webb Bios & Profiles
Biography #2 (for 500 Days of Summer)Marc Webb directs stuff. Short films, videos, commercials, drinking games. Whatever. He has won several MTV VMAs™ including 2006 Best Rock Video for AFI's Miss Murder and Best Group Video for The All-American Rejects' Move Along. The Music Video Production Association honored him in 2006 as the Director of the Year for his work with Weezer, AAR and My Chemical Romance. 500 DAYS OF SUMMER is Webb's first feature.
He likes penne pasta and hates to be called chief or buddy.
His short film SEASCAPE premiered at the Aspen Comedy Festival, which is funny, because he didn't think it was funny. So, to ensure he wouldn't make another comedy, he went to Baghdad to direct a documentary on the first day of school in post-war Iraq. But people laughed at him there too.
Webb studied at Colorado College, NYU for a semester and Art Center for a few months. He received a Newberry Fellowship and spoke at his graduation. The person next to him told him to shut up.
His dad is a mathematician and his mother is a biologist. His brother just had another baby. Her name is Isabelle. Marc has pictures if you want to see.
