During an interview following the ceremony, Brad Bird was asked if he might consider doing a stop-motion film in clay. He laughed heartily and said, "I'll leave it to people who are better at it than I am… I'm really happy that this year people are realizing that every other form of animation is just as vital as CG."
Bird also said that he is currently working on a couple of projects at Pixar, but that neither has been announced yet so he is unable to comment on them. "I really can't talk about it. I love working at Pixar and it's just a great group of people."
When asked if he felt the same way about the newly merged Disney-Pixar animation studio, Bird said, "Yeah! We're all very optimistic about what lies ahead… I'll tell you one thing I'm really excited about though. An animator is in charge of animation at Disney, and I think that's a reason to just cheer to the heavens."
