Quote of the Day: Sweep away the audience...

"When you go into the theatre and the lights dim, you want to entertain people from beginning to end. You want them to be swept up in your story, on the edge of their seats, unable to wait to see what happens next, be blown away and afterwards just go, 'Wow!'"
-- John Lasseter (via BrainyQuote)
