Insight: Brad Bird on #Animation

“You are constantly trying to get the audience into the state of feeling, how things feel, rather than how things are.” — Brad Bird

This excellently animated (illustrated?) five-minute films features Brad Bird, writer and director of animated films The Iron Giant, The Incredibles and Ratatouille, providing insights into his process and why many people fundamentally misunderstand the medium.

P.S. Don’t call animation a “genre.” Brad might punch you in the face.
