Directors discuss the work and play angles
In the costly and time-intensive discipline of animated filmmaking, every movie comes with high stakes. Five directors who recently came together for the first Envelope Animation Round Table discussed the artistic and business demands of the medium. In a conversation at the Los Angeles Times, Mark Andrews ("Brave," with Brenda Chapman), Chris Butler ("ParaNorman," with Sam Fell), Rich Moore ('Wreck-It Ralph"), Peter Ramsey ("Rise of the Guardians") and Genndy Tartakovsky ("Hotel Transylvania") tackled topics such as how they pitch their ideas, approach voice actors and handle the limitations that come from playing strictly to family audiences.
