Hideaki Anno said He had no choice but to collage.

 

Hideaki Anno

 

I think we can not help but to collage other works in making a animation. 

There is nothing for it. If there is an original thing,  it is my life. 

Nobody experienced my life other than me. 

therefore, I have only a choice to exploit my life in creating an original work.”
