Brad Bird's video game rant

Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille) came to San Diego Comic-Con International 2016 for a preview of The Giant’s Dream: The Making Of The Iron Giant, which will be included on the upcoming Blu-ray release of the film this fall. The documentary by Anthony Giacchino is a beautiful and heartbreaking look at the Hollywood animation process, a must see. While the presentation wasn’t in one of Comic Con’s big halls, Bird joked that more people saw this documentary today at this Comic-Con screening than saw The Iron Giant on its original theatrical release.

After screening the documentary, Bird took questions from the audience. The most interesting answer came as someone asked Bird for some filmmaking advice and the Pixar filmmaker advised that aspiring filmmakers should be weary about not being influenced by the wrong aspects of video games. Hit the jump to read Brad Bird’s video game rant.
