Personal Quote:

I think all movies are an illusion, whether they are live action or animation. And I think the best special effect that people don't pay enough attention to is caring about the characters who are going through the set pieces. If you can be invested in the characters that you are putting in danger, then you can amp up the pressure, and it really means something because people are rooting for them ... See more »

Trivia:

In The Incredibles (2004), he provided the voice for the character Edna Mode on the temporary audio track. Lily Tomlin was approached to voice the character for release, but turned the part down after listening to Brad's scratch track stating that they already had the right voice for the character.
