INSIGHT • HOW THE ANIMATION INDUSTRY WORKS

Brad Bird's Amazing Story,
from leaving Disney onto fixing The Iron Giant and the Road Less Traveled

"Well, when I realized that Disney was not going to be the place that I thought that it was, I had two alternatives. One was to quit animation and go into regular live action filmmaking, and the other was to make one last shot at doing the kind of projects I wanted to do in animation and see if I could get anyone interested in paying for it.

INTERVIEW

By Ron Barbagallo - September 24, 2015, expanded from the January 2000, June 2000 and September 2004 versions

Chuck Jones: in his own words, the director and the art conservator's cut

This interview was not available Online before. Nor was it published at this length. This version includes five paragraphs at its head that were cut each time it was previously published because the Editors failed to grasp Chuck's sense of humor. I found removing the sardonic opener disrespectful to all sides that were Chuck Jones and am glad to present the interview in its full form. This publication was the final print interview Chuck Jones gave before he passed away. This version features a series of unpublished photographs I took of Jones while painting in his studio.
