Doug, Thumbelina is a great film. Why the closeup on Thumbelina when they talked changes?

A “great” film? LOL, no, Thumbelina is pretty bad. You’re letting nostalgia goggles cloud your judgement. Nostalgia Chick did a review and points out everything that is awful in that movie. It had nice animation and one nice song (the rest of them were insufferable). But Thumbelina absolutely sucks. I saw it once and only once. I felt like I was watching something for three-year-olds.

AWEEEEEEESOME ♥

Damn, I really want to know who Don’s favorite character is. Though when you ask other artists and writers that, they normally say “That’s like picking your favorite child. I can’t.”

Mine are Charlie and Mrs Bribsy though.

Family reunion. I never noticed this running theme in their movies, but now I notice it more. Whenever I watched Anastasia (And I watched it a lot.), I was sad at the end that Anya left her grandmother soon after reuniting to go elope for the romantic ending. There was a lot of power in them meeting again near the end that I thought was brought to life in a really strong way. This was a wonderful interview! Of course as an animator, I hoped for more technical/art talk, but the questions chosen were still very much enjoyable to hear… Read more »

Nice, isn’t it? You can tell most of his movies, even the 90’s executive era, were very personal and intimate to him.

I see after doing some looking that they switched to indiegogo and that they raised over half the projected cost in a month so ( fingers crossed) this looks like it’s going to happen! I love Don’s quote ” I don’t want you to feel bad for me, i don’t need your pity, I just need your money”, this guy is a national treasure!

The following ideas, by all means feel free to think ‘nah that’s stupid. We won’t do that. *Have some refferences to Time Warp, maybe show the evil wizard’s brother being trapped in a time machine, but never turn it on or let Dirk sit in it, have it (so to speak) sitting behind the Wizard’s couch somewhere untill the direct-to-dvd sequel *The Wizard should be a bit more complex. Have him still do everything he does in the game including the way he laughs, but I think he needs…. I dunno, trajedy or something. Dirk’s obsession with Daphnie is pretty… Read more »

It’s nice that Jerry Goldsmith and James Horner were talked about, all good.

But those great men are both dead. How about we talk about the living?

Graeme Revell deserves just as much praise for writing his one hour long orchestral score to Titan AE. It is an amazing piece of work, definitely worth owning, and it deserves more love.

I now this would be a great interview and it was. Possibly the best SUAT so far. One thing did bother me though. Much as I hate to disagree with a legend, I found Don Bloth’s statement about Inside/Out to be somewhat…well upside-down if you’ll pardon the pun. The emotions in Riely’s head weren’t controlling her. They were all small part of her own mind. The idea wasn’t that emotion decide our actions. It’s that our action are guided by emotions. Still his point about the power to choose where you go in life is a good one. Which is… Read more »

Yeah I agree, in my view, everything happening with the emotions and inside her head is supposed to all be seen as a big metaphor, she lost her joy, because of her refusal to accept sadness, you’re supposed to look past the whole thing with the emotions being portraied as living beings, and you got to think about it abstractly, hell, the movie even references this itself when they go into the chamber of abstract thought or whatever it was called again xD

Aw, I’ve wanting to give to their Indiegogo but I’m so poor. I’ll see what I can do though because I know that I LOVE Titan A.E though. It was actually a big part of my childhood, as well as Land Before Time. I don’t quite believe the Yin-Yang philosophy in most aspects. However, all I know is that I hate completely sad endings. Also, LOL, you could tell that Doug was surprised when Mr. Bluth criticized Inside Out though.

Yeah your darkness and light themes are great but you’re not that good with child characters, human child characters Mr. Bluth and Mr. Goldman.

Did you or they Don and Gary know that Great Uncle Walt Disney was kind of a pure Capitalist jerk douchebag if his management methods were exposed today, the Disney Animator’s Strike of 1941 was the longest running labor dispute in American entertainment history and I got a certain old 90’s documentary about why it happened called “The Secret Lives of Walt Disney,” look it up on wikipedia. Here’s the short version which is not easy to tell as well. Trade Unions as you know were not allowed much of any industry in the 1930’s because you Americans really hated… Read more »

I’m glad you still had to do the customary final questions, following the camera’s zoom fixing itself (although, I mean, where else would the “final” questions end up; but it’s good they’re there). Because without the two questions, it would have come across as if you had already finished the interview (I forgot, for a minute, how each interview ends, and thought “Dragon’s Lair” was going to be the final topic), but then everyone realized afterwards, “hey, we forgot to pitch the movie!”, and then went and shot additional footage, just to market the “Dragon’s Lair” campaign – regardless of… Read more »

Great interview! These two are truly masters and I enjoy learning from them however I can. I’m looking forward to the Dragon’s Lair movie!
