Michael Giacchino, who won for his score of Up, was standing outside taking a break on another movie when someone told him the story of Up. "It's about life and death and moving on," Giacchino said. "I knew immediately that I had to do it, so badly." He says that he treats cartoon characters as real people. "It was about being quiet and simple and letting it grow from there."
