There’s a great mini-interview with Richard Williams at Spline Doctors:

This is almost identical to the stuff Richard talked about when he came to Vancouver recently. It’s great that it’s all online now. I knew it would end up online eventually, as he mentioned he was on his way south to California, where animator’s are smarter, and carry recorders with them everywhere :P
