Director Andrew Stanton Talks Wall-E and Finding Nemo

Courtesy of Creative Screenwriting magazine, a 70+ minute audio interview with Andrew Stanton (68mb MP3 file) discussing his films Wall-E and Finding Nemo.

  • Nice photo… he looks like a Pulitzer-prize winning author, rather than an animator.

  • What’s wrong with looking like an animator?

    Andrew is a talented dude, and a very nice guy. I’m pleased that he’s done so well at Pixar, and I expect more good things in the future.

    Whoa Amid, thanks for the link man!

    Of course this brings up the question of what exactly an animator DOES look like in your/our mind’s eye! 50s beatnik hipster doofus? Cute n’ sassy sharp-talking chick (hip glasses optional)? Uncle Eddie Fitzgerald? Someone who generally looks more like a caricature of themselves the older they get?

    I loved seeing pics in that doco of Lasseter and Bird when they were groovy young students, before all the hair went away…

    It because he isn’t wearing a Hawaiian shirt, isn’t it.

    It must mean that he is uncomfortable and conservative, by not wearing a large loud hawaiian shirt like every wacky pixar animator is supposed to do, because its such a free and freaky environment. Heck even their offices look like tiki bars!

    I like to wear a black sportcoat, because it keeps me warm. It doesn’t mean I work on Wall Street.

  • Aaron, what have you started? :)

    Happy New Year, guys.

    Excellent interview, very insightful.

    What a great listen! Thanks for linking, Brewmasters!

  • If I worked at Pixar, I’d dress like this every day.

    Is it possible to listen to it streaming or on iTunes? I think that’d be easier for me.
