Germain was a producer assistant when he was 24 on ''Terms of Endearment'', ''Say Anything...'', ''Big'' and ''Broadcast News'' which was produced or directed by James L. Brooks for Gracie Films.

Germain's son was the inspiration for the ''Rugrats'' character Tommy Pickles; the antagonist, Angelica Pickles, was based on a bully from his childhood.

Germain was a screenwriter on ''Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue''. He is currently working on live-action projects.
