Director Shane Acker is joined by his producer, the legendary Tim Burton, as they talk to Comic-con press about their upcoming apocalyptic animated fantasy feature '9'.

After a 5 am flight and literally going close to 48 hours with no sleep I've made it through my first big day at the San Diego Comicon. The beginning of the day was a true test of sanity, A mix-up with the hotel, walking long distances while hauling heavy equipment like an overpacked mule, and two stomach knotting occasions where we were almost denied our press badges only added to our weary stressed out bodies.
