** He also has a distinct way of directing dialogue that succeeds at the difficult task of making the animated character and the voice appear one and the same.

Bird's later claims to fame include two films that captured his love of the classic comic book stories, ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', the latter of which was the beginning of his tenure at Creator/{{Pixar}}. His next animated film was the Pixar-produced ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}''. He then moved into live-action by directing ''Film/MissionImpossibleGhostProtocol'', the fourth installment of the ''Film/MissionImpossible'' films, which is his live-action debut. The film has received extremely positive reviews, particularly for its action scenes. Currently is working on two movies: ''Tomorrowland'', a film for Disney inspired by the area of the Franchise/DisneyThemeParks, and a sequel to ''The Incredibles''.

* TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation: [[LiveActionTelevision/AmazingStories "Family Dog"]] is widely credited with introducing high-quality animation to television cartoons. Not for nothing, the animation is ''gorgeous''.
* SignatureStyle: His animated films feature classically animated (i.e., full, Disney-quality animation) characters with broad, graphic designs. Unlike most CGI movie characters, the characters in his two Pixar films actually look as though they were drawings first before being modeled in the computer.

* UsefulNotes/{{Objectivism}}: He was a fan of Creator/AynRand in college, and ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' have been accused of being thematically similar to her novels ''Literature/TheFountainhead'' and ''Literature/AtlasShrugged''. However, [[http://nypost.com/2005/03/13/the-hot-seat-brad-bird/ he claims]] to have grown out of it.

'''Brad Bird''' is a screenwriter/director from Kalispell, Montana. His experience lies mostly within the realm of animation, and he's also known as one of the directors to actually bob and weave his way around the concept of the AnimationAgeGhetto, due to most of his works looking aesthetically cartoony, but having a maturity and depth that rivals most live-action pieces. Bird got his start working as an animator on ''WesternAnimation/{{Animalympics}}'', {{Creator/Disney}}'s ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound'' and Martin Rosen's ''Literature/ThePlagueDogs'', and moved on to work with Creator/StevenSpielberg in his ''Series/AmazingStories'' anthology series, notably with a short titled "Family Dog". He got his big break after he managed to grab the attention of TraceyUllman, and began work alongside MattGroening on a crude animated series that premiered on her show, called ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
