"I don't storyboard too closely; to have done all the fun work, and to animate it, there are no surprises left. But I also need to know where I'm going since I work under the camera. If I take a wrong turn I can't go back. So, as I come to each scene, I do some little sketches, particularly to know what the characters look like in different positions, so I don't get lost."
