Quotations and aphorisms by Chris Meledandri:
I have to understand how we are going to market the movie. We view marketing as an extension of content creation… Every time a consumer sees our movie, in whatever form, our obligation is to entertain the audience.
I go back to family: ‘Ice Age’ was about disparate characters rejected by their own kind. They come together to save the child. ‘Despicable Me’ is about redefining what a family could be. It has a visual distinction and an experimental quality.
