Brad Bird, writer and director of animated films ‘The Iron Giant’, ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘Ratatouille’, gives an insight into his writing process, how he directs animation and why many people fundamentally misunderstand the medium. Subtitles available.
Find out which animated film that one clip was from by turning on the ‘English CC’ subtitle track.
This video combines excerpts from the three audio commentary tracks on home releases of ‘The Iron Giant’, ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘Ratatouille’, as well as fragments from the behind-the-scenes documentaries. Watching the films prior to watching this video is recommended, but not entirely necessary.

“Borrowed Time” is an animated short film, directed by Andrew Coats & Lou Hamou-Lhadj, and produced by Amanda Deering Jones. Music by Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla.
Hamou-Lhadj worked as a character artist on Pixar movies such as Wall-E and Toy Story 3, while Coats worked on Brave and The Good Dinosaur. They made this short in their spare time at Pixar over the past 5 years.
Blur is a studio constantly featured on this blog, their cinematics work is some of the finest in the world. Look at their latest work for the next expansion for Star Wars the Old Republic.
A fantastic film that deserves a greater look at the depth and sheer creative force of the animators and artists that worked so hard to bring this film to life.
