Brad Bird QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
And if you are making entertainment that you yourself wouldn't watch, I think there's something insulting about that.
Quotation of Brad Bird
And it's not only films, I'm pretty unaware of anything that's going on in popular culture right now.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Animation is about creating the illusion of life. And you can't create it if you don't have one.
Quotation of Brad Bird
But I don't just see the movie when I see the movie, I see all the great people who worked on it and all their hard work, because they could not have worked any harder.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Even in hand drawn animation, humans are widely considered to be the most difficult to execute, because everybody has a feeling for how they move.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Every time I started going in the direction of thinking how it might turn out, I started to just turn my brain around and not go there, because I think the surest way to guarantee that you won't win is to assume that you will.
Quotation of Brad Bird
I got my heroes secondhand, from television and movies, to a certain extent.
Quotation of Brad Bird
I had about the biggest, longest wish list anyone could have, and 99 percent of what I wanted to get on the screen we got on the screen within our schedule and within our budget and within our resources.
Quotation of Brad Bird
I have three kids and a wife, and any moments that aren't dedicated to working on this film in some way, or family, are immediately reserved for sleep.
Quotation of Brad Bird
I think if you have a really big, heavy person, there's a feeling of an invisible puppeteer jerking them around in space. They don't feel like they are moving themselves.
Quotation of Brad Bird
I think it's the most extraordinary studio around. I would love to do my next project with Pixar.
Quotation of Brad Bird
I was not a big comic-book reader.
Quotation of Brad Bird
I'm definitely a centrist and feel like both parties can be absurd.
Quotation of Brad Bird
If there are similarities, it's simply because the same thoughts that occurred to other people also occurred to me. I'd be astonished if anyone could come up with any truly original powers that were at all interesting any more.
Quotation of Brad Bird
If we had done the humans the way Pixar had done them prior to this, it would have taken four years just to build the characters. So we had to invent a whole new way to build them. We were told it would take ten years and cost a gazillion dollars by people here who are very smart.
Quotation of Brad Bird
If you look at a lot of animated movies, they don't pay attention to how things move through space.
Quotation of Brad Bird
If you move something 10 pounds through space and then stop suddenly, there's a little overshoot. When you transfer weight from one leg to another, there's a certain way that it happens.
Quotation of Brad Bird
If your goal is just to be funny then you can do something simple like The Simpsons and South Park. But if you're trying to be dramatic and put your characters in jeopardy and have them feel pain and regret and complexity, then you have to be very careful as to how you put them on screen.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Look, I think if you talk down to a kid or aim specifically at a kid, most kids aren't gonna like it, really, because most kids can feel when you are being patronizing.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Look, it's a mainstream animated movie, and how often are those considered thought provoking? It's meant to be a great time at the theater, but it's also designed to work on more than one level.
Quotation of Brad Bird
My kids love anime, but I don't show them the really graphic stuff.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Now if you have a team of animators to go over the motion capture to get the most out of it and plus it, like Gollum, I think the results are extraordinary. But if you leave it alone and just take the information that's given to you from the machine, you get creepy, unconvincing stuff.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Oh yeah, I'm still employed at Pixar and I love it here.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Particularly in the area of computer graphics, when people do humans, they get suckered into trying to make them realistic.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Ten-year-old boys move differently than middle-aged women, who move differently than athletic guys, who move differently than government bureaucrats.
Quotation of Brad Bird
That's not the part of the story that I'm interested in, anyway. The part that I'm interested in is all the personal stuff. I tried to base the powers on family archetypes.
Quotation of Brad Bird
The days I was happiest as a screenwriter were when I was writing scenes with E.
Quotation of Brad Bird
We make films that we ourselves would want to see and then hope that other people would want to see it. If you try to analyze audiences or think there's some sophisticated recipe for success, then I think you are doomed. You're making it too complicated.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Well I'm still working on The Incredibles. So I'm going to take a little time off. I've got a couple of tricks up my sleeve. I'm not ready to talk about them yet, but expect the unexpected.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Well what's funny is, again, people say they believed what was going on, but again, Bob's hands are about three times bigger than his feet. So these are very caricatured.
Quotation of Brad Bird
Without naming names, I think other movies look more realistic but they feel less real.
