1.When I was younger I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I hadn’t given it any thought. I really liked watching violent movies. I would go to theatres and watches movies that were titled “Dr Jackyle and Sister Hyde” or “The Brain that Wouldn’t Die”. Later I started making short films that lasted about five minutes. I would even make movies for school instead of doing written reports. It just made more sense to me to make a movie than to sit down and take hours to write half a page. I would even get better grades on the movies than if I attempted to write something.
2. When I started working for Disney I got really depressed. They had me working on “The Fox and the Hound”. I was supposed to draw these cute little foxes. I just couldn’t do it. When I draw things they reflect the mood I am in. I couldn’t just be happy all the time. Luckily I got all the scenes with the foxes far away, but they still looked like road kill. I don’t think they used any of my work for that movie. I really didn’t think I would ever be able to make it in the Disney company. Every day was terrible. I hardly got any work done at all, most of the time I would just sit on my desk. That was defiantly the hardest time of my life.
3.What I feel is my biggest accomplishment, and makes me very happy is that I didn’t go to film school and I was still able to become a big Hollywood producer. I Went to CalArts, an animation studio founded by Walt Disney. My movies don’t really feel like accomplishments to me. When I was making my first movies I just thought it was weird that people would trust me to do something like that. When I go back and watch my movies I notice they are flawed. I know they aren’t perfect, but I love them fore there flaws, it would feel wrong to go back and fix them. My movies don’t feel like accomplishments though because I enjoy them and they just come to me easily.
