For me, part of the fascination with making animation is you go to a place; it's a complete immersion in someone else's fantasy.
We had no idea what we were in for when we started Blue Sky. We just had an idea of what we wanted to do. When we got to a point where it seemed impossible, we just kept doing it. After 18 years, we have a lot of it done.
What made 'Ice Age' work is that it had its shiny candy coatings, but inside was a soft, creamy center.
We can't worry about competition. Besides, you aren't competing with anyone but yourself. They have nothing to do with whether you make a good movie or not.
You win the Oscar, you get to go into just about anybody's office for a month. I had a lot of meetings.
