Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)] The animation of the dwarfs themselves is something pretty much impossible to achieve in computer animation. That fluidity, that squash and stretch, that kind of stuff - it just works in hand-drawn animation. See more »

Trivia:

Member of the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Short Films and Feature Animation Branch) since 2005. See more »

Trademark:

Nearly all of his films have hidden visual in-jokes with regards to Pixar, Disney, etc. Examples include: Toy Story (1995), A Bug's Life (1998), Toy Story 2 (1999) and Cars (2006). See more »
