What I love most about animation is, it's a team sport, and everything we do is about pure imagination.
I guess my first digital movie was 'Tintin' because 'Tintin' has no film step. There is no intermediate film step. It's 100% digital animation, but as far as a live-action film, I'm still planning to shoot everything on film.
I believe in 3D for certain kinds of films. I certainly believe in using 3D for all things in animation because animation has such clarity and so much depth of focus. It worked great with 'Avatar' because 70 percent of that film is animated.
In '83, not only was there no such thing as performance motion capture technology, there was no such thing as digital animation. This was the analog era.
I don't believe that an animation studio should be an executive-driven studio.
Animation is the only thing I ever wanted to do in my whole life. I have no desire for live-action or anything else.
'Bolt' was made by Walt Disney Animation Studios, not by Pixar.
One of the big moments of my life was watching 'Star Wars' on its opening weekend in Hollywood. I was watching all these people enjoy this film, and I thought: animation can do this.
The Walt Disney Animation studio is the studio that Walt Disney started himself in 1923, and it's never stopped and never closed its doors and never stopped making animation, and it keeps going as kind of the heart and soul of the company.
Pixar has invented much of computer animation as it's known today, and I've been very lucky to be the first traditional animator to work with computer animation.
I brought in the stories many times. I don't just do animation.
In animation, there's this exhilarating moment of discovery when you see the film and you say, Oh THAT'S what I was doing.
It's interesting when you're trying to create a character in animation. It's really a communal effort.
With animation, because you can draw anything and do anything and have the characters do whatever you want, the tendency is to be very loose with the boundaries and the rules.
What's most important in animation is the emotions and the ideas being portrayed. I'm a great believer of energy and emotion.
Animation did not become the dominant form of children's television until the '60s.
When business executives are making the artistic decisions and don't understand animation, things can go awry.
If I wasn't acting or doing stand-up, I would be in animation. Or if I had the discipline I might studies physics.
I was a film major with a concentration in animation.
Well, directing is doing the key drawings, not the key animation, mind you.
I usually have 10 different animation projects going at a time.
I love great animation.
I did B com but realised that it was not my cup of tea. I was always fascinated by animation, and after I completed my course, I wanted to go abroad and pursue it. I used to sketch a lot and was rather serious about it. But all this was until I joined films.
The success of 'The Simpsons' really opened doors. It showed that if you were working in animation you didn't necessarily have to be working in kids' television.
I have to admit to not being the greatest technician, but stop motion animation gives me licence to create machines that wouldn't otherwise be possible - inventions that seem real and actually work.
