When I don't have a movie, I don't take a job just for the sake of working. I just sit it out until I find something I'm passionate about.
I was a scared kid... I think I was born a nervous wreck, and I think movies were one way to find a way transferring my own private horrors to everyone else's lives. It was less of an escape and more of an exorcism.
In '83, not only was there no such thing as performance motion capture technology, there was no such thing as digital animation. This was the analog era.
Fathering is a major job, but I need both things in my life: my job to be a director, and my kids to direct me.
