Craig Mccracken QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
And I tell ya' I'd hire an artist with killer cartooning skills over a guy who could draw a pretty elephant any day.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
Anything you see on the screen was at one point approved by me.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
Basicly I'm in charge of all creative aspects of the show.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
Basicly what I had to do was do a 7 minute board and pitch it to a room of big wigs from the network and based on that they determined if I would get a short or not.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
Because it's drawings, you can kind of go anywhere and create anything you want.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
But to me what seems to be missing in a lot of portfolios is Cartooning.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
First, there was 2 Stupid Dogs. Then, Dexter's Laboratory. And now, Powerpuff Girls. There were a lot of little things in between, but those were the main ones.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
For a long time I wanted to be a comic strip artist but when I started doing them in my teens they were getting really elaborate with tons of poses and a lot of information.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
I could probably develop another show and then have other people make it, but I couldn't just let something like that go.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
I don't believe in scripts - if you're going to write, then you also have to draw, if you want to work on Powerpuff.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
I don't really have time to approve every shirt and sticker that gets made but I have been heavily involved in the big stuff like toys.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
I had certain voices in mind and we just kept looking till we found the right ones.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
I started working at Hanna-Barbera in '92 on 2 Stupid Dogs.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
I'm a geeky toy collector, and to have toys of your own characters is unbelievably cool.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
I'm always thinking about what I might want to do next, but there's still things I want to do with Powerpuff - so I can keep going with this one for awhile.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
I'm hoping that word-of-mouth on the film - people seeing it and liking it - that that will drive more people to the theaters, because I haven't seen the billboards or the posters or anything.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
I've been drawing since I was about 3 and I come from a family of artists.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
It really just gives you a sense of when you need to have dialogue and when you don't, and if your pictures are telling the story, you don't need to have all this talking.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
Now I did do later drawings where I tried putting fingers on them but it never looked right to me they weren't as appealing as that first drawing.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
One of the main things I do is focus on ideas and what stories we decide to tell, but probably the biggest part of my job I'd say is working on the storyboards.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
So what I do is supervise the boarding process trying to get the shows the way I'd like them to be. And in some cases I've completely redone a board myself even though I'm not credited for it.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
The reason they look the way they do is that the first drawing I did of them was really small so I didn't draw fingers, nose, ears, etc and this drawing had a certain appeal that I really liked.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
The shows are either 11 or 22 minutes and they move pretty quickly, and that's part of the charm of them - so it was just trying to keep that in mind and keep the energy of the story moving, even though we were dealing with a longer format.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
The storyboard artists job is to plan out shot for shot the whole show, write all the dialog, and decide the mood, action, jokes, pacing, etc of every scene.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
There's a lot you can do without words.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
We chose the actors thru a series of auditions when we started the show.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
We record the shows with everyone there 'cause it always turns out better when the actors can play off each other.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
Well I don't really get to choose WHO gets to market it that's all decided by the Cartoon Network marketing Department.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
Well most portfolios we see are full of life drawing which is totally necessary and really shows if you can draw or not.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
Well the shows that are really motivated by character (especially the girls) are usually the best shows and the ones where the characters are more flat and 2 dimensional never work as good for me.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
Well, for one thing, the executives in charge at Cartoon Network are cartoon fans. I mean, these are people who grew up loving animation and loving cartoons, and the only difference between them and me is they don't know how to draw.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
When the call went out that Cartoon Network was looking for new shows, I jumped at the chance, and pitched them my ideas.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
Yes, it's a prequel. It tells the story about how the girls were born with superpowers, but they weren't necessarily heroes at the beginning of this movie, so the movie is about the events that happen in their life to make them decide to be heroes.
Quotation of Craig Mccracken
You can say a lot with pictures. It's a visual medium - and especially with animation, you can do a lot that you can't do in live action.
