Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street and The Mitchells Vs The Machines’ Phil Lord & Christopher Miller talk Making Animation Blockbusters.

This week, Giles Alderson and co-host CJ, Christian James, welcome the incredible producing-writing-directing duo Phil Lord & Christopher Miller. They are known for animation & live-action films such as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009), 21 Jump Street (2012), The Lego Movie (2014), and The Mitchells vs. The Machines (2021 and OUT NOW on NETFLIX) to name a few.

Phil & Christopher dive deep into their filmmaking career: Where they met each other, how they became friends by burning someone’s hair, and how they failed at their first job. They also talk about their early inspirations, anxiety, what the animation scene was like back in the day, and how they go from idea to script to the finished film.

They also discuss the difference between making animation and live-action, how to deal with rejection, pacing, why a good sound mix can change everything, and why the key to success is uniqueness.

All that is to come in this week’s episode and MORE (like funny behind-the-scenes stories.) You don’t want to miss this epic and hilarious conversation! So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode with Phil Lord & Christopher Miller!

THE MITCHELLS VS. THE MACHINES is NOW on NETFLIX
