Director Lee Unkrich and Producer Darla K. Anderson Video Interview TOY STORY 3 slice

Last week, Matt posted a number of Toy Story 3 interviews.  While you might have thought we were done covering Toy Story 3, I also did a few interviews at Pixar and now that a lot of you have seen the movie, I thought you might like to see them.

The one you’re about to watch is with producer Darla K. Anderson (pictured on left) and what’s great about to interview is the way we talked about the behind the scenes stuff at Pixar.  After all, while most of us have heard a tremendous amount about how Toy Story 3 was made, you might not know how Anderson got her job at Pixar and what’s it really like being a producer on an animated film.  Hit the jump to check it out:

Finally, while I would have loved to have used my HD camera, all I had was my Flip Mini, so that’s why the interview looks the way it does.  Also, I was paired with someone from an international magazine, so when you hear someone else asking questions (we took turns), that’s who it is.
