I‘m looking forward to a chat with Pixar’s Andrew Stanton, writer and director of Wall-E, later this week.
But my favorite bit from The Boston Globe‘s conversation with Stanton is this:
Stanton says he’s gotten used to working on a four-year cycle.
“I rely on that now,” he admits. “I still work as fast as I freaking can. I have a motto: Be wrong as fast as you can. Which allows me to know that I’m just going to make a lot of mistakes, that it’s expected. It’s part of the process. But as long as I do it really fast I’m buying time on the back end to solve whatever I do wrong. So I rely on four years. I’ve never gotten anything right in under two years.”
