“In those days, in the graphics field, we built everything we used. It really was necessity leading to innovation.”
“After Tron, I went on to do FernGully: The Last Rainforest, a feature film that had about 40,000 frames of computer animation, which a lot of people don’t realize. It was Robin Williams’ first voice performance too, playing Batty.
The film did quite well, and after that my wife and I continued doing computer graphics with our own company. We did the animation directing for a bunch of films: Garfield, Scooby Doo, Cats & Dogs, The Flintstones. And every movie we did, we advanced something in fur technology or water technology. Computer graphics was very exciting to do.”
