Recently we attended the “Wreck-It Ralph” Press Junket and had the opportunity to interview some great talent from the movie. This is Part 1, an interview with Clark Spencer (Producer) and Phil Johnston (Story by/Screenplay by). We will be adding a new interview each week ending with Sarah Silverman (voice of “Vanellope von Schweetz”). We will also have an exclusive interview with John Kahrs (Director of the animated short “Paperman”) which plays at the beginning of the film. Enjoy.
Here is a short bio of the first interview (full audio of the interview is below):
CLARK SPENCER (Producer) has served in a variety of top executive capacities for Walt Disney Animation Studios over the past two decades. He joined Disney in July 1990 as a senior business planner in the finance and planning department, earning subsequent promotions to manager of studio planning in August 1991 and director of studio planning and finance in September 1992. During this time, he was involved in the launch of the Disney Channel in Asia, the acquisition of Miramax Films and the creation of the business plan for Disney’s Paris-based animation studio.
PHIL JOHNSTON (Story by/Screenplay by) is a feature film and television writer. His screenplay for “Cedar Rapids,” starring Ed Helms and John C. Reilly, was a 2012 Independent Spirit Award nominee for Best First Screenplay.
