CBR: I know that some people dislike “simple” styles of drawing and animation, but what do you think is the appeal of this style? What do you think is possible that you couldn’t with a different style or approach?

Don Hertzfeldt: I don’t know. If anything, I try to avoid thinking about those things or analyzing very much because I find it can become really creatively paralyzing. I often approach a new project with a very real sense of, “I have no idea what I’m doing." You throw yourself in and try and find the way out.
