On the other, is the pure commercial side - films made to follow a trend. If you go entirely for the art side, at some point you fail economically. If you go to the commercial side, you fail from a soul point of view. There is somewhere in the middle.”
~ Ed Catmull, Co-founder and President of Pixar

“The press always tends to say these companies are competitors. They are missing the point. As a fan, I want to help the industry. I would love for every studio to produce a blockbuster so we can get more talented people in the industry. Competition to us is when a family walks up to the multiplex and all those titles are up there. I want everyone to be successful.”
~ John Lasseter
