An interview with Paul Tibbitt, director of The SpongeBob Movie: A Sponge Out Of Water

Today I have my third and final video interview for the new SpongeBob Movie: A Sponge Out Of Water. If you’ve not yet watched me talking to Antonio Banderas or Tom Kenny and Bill Fagerbakke then where have you been? Watch them now and catch up.

This interview was actually the first one that I did and although I don’t think it’s horribly obvious, I was incredibly nervous. My hands were shaking and I could feel my face getting redder and redder. Because of the nerves and not knowing what to expect when I first went in the room, I fear I may have got off on slightly the wrong foot with Paul Tibbitt; I knew I should pay him a compliment, but panicked and couldn’t think what to say, so ended up telling him that the film had ‘given me a lot to think about.’


I edited that bit out.

I also edited out the bit where I asked him if he had grown a beard to make him feel like a real man.

(I’m not sure I am a natural at this.)

I like the thumbnail for this video – it feels like a good reflection of how he must have been feeling inside by the end of the interview…

I went to New York with Paramount to watch the new SpongeBob Movie and interview the cast and crew.
