Personal Quote:

My father died a few years before I started work on The Lion King (1994) so it definitely was in there, informing the whole thing. I know one thing we wanted to do when we finished it was to dedicate it to our fathers. To all fathers which I thought would have been a nice idea.

Trivia:

Received several International Film Festival Awards, in 2006, for his Oscar-nominated short film, The Little Matchgirl (2006). See more »
