GREAT INTERVIEW: Genndy Tartakovsky – Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Transylvania sets record for biggest September opening of all time!” 

  Best known for the Cartoon Network’s animated TV series Star Wars: Clone Wars, Samurai Jack, and Dexter’s Laboratory, Animator/Director/Producer Genndy Tartakovsky talks about his feature film Directing debut on Sony Pictures Animation’s  Hotel Transylvania

  Enjoy!

LA TimesGenndy Tartakovsky on making Hotel Transylvania:
“I took all the aesthetics I like from 2-D and applied them here. I don’t want to do animation to mimic reality. I want to push reality. You want to have your own identity. You don’t want to have an expression that Pixar has. That was super important to me. In 2-D, the way you draw defines you, but in CG the computer takes away your identity. I wanted to make sure the movie had my point of view.”

Cartoon Brew – on Hotel Transylvania:
“… it’s time for Hollywood’s CG features to evolve – and it looks like it will take a cartoonist to blaze that trail. I like what Genndy is bringing to the table – a sense of style and humor that pushes (however slightly) what a modern day animated feature can be. It’s a small refreshing step in a exciting direction – and I look forward to seeing where this could go.”
