Personal Quote:

I'm looking forward to being able to walk into a room of hard-working artists every day and telling them that everything they're doing is wrong.

Trivia:

Although Hertzfeldt's approach to animation is traditional (pen, paper, and film), his methods are self-taught and unorthodox. Most of his films are created without a script; he usually begins with a concept that is created and shaped out as the months progress. This allows for creative experiments, improvisation, and an element of spontaneity. See more »
