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:

Hertzfeldt often does not use computers in his animation or photography process. This forces him to draw every element on the screen over and over again, lending his films their jittery, kinetic appearance. He also often forgoes animating traditional key frames and instead simply draws straight ahead. See more »

Trademark:

Often uses classical music in his films See more »
