Jim Capobianco's list of credits and achievements is too long to list here, but his career spans Disney and Pixar as a story artist, where he worked as a story artist on many great films, the Lion King, A Bug's Life, Monsters Inc, Finding memo, Inside Out and Coco among them. He was Oscar nominated for co-writing Ratatouille, and his personal short film is in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art. I talk with him about his career path from Cal Arts all the way through to what he's up to now. Jim has a laid back, affable personality, so chatting with him was a joy and the time flew by. Enjoy!
