Brad Bird

Hosted by

Director Brad Bird uses animation as a format to tell stories of emotional intimacy.  He's done so with The Iron Giant, The Incredibles and his newest film, Ratatouille.  Bird talks about the challenges of having a rat as a chef and making him into an empathetic lead character, the film's animators taking food classes to make the kitchen scenes authentic, and his determination to make movies that stand the test of time.
