Citation

“In animated films, or in the French cinema, I never felt I was in my rightful place. Hollywood is even worse! I never feel comfortable anywhere, I always get the feeling I’ve landed on the wrong planet […]. I only feel comfortable working with people who share my passion for a job well done.”
