Full Interview: Minions Boss on failure and success

Chris Meledandri is the CEO of Illumination Entertainment, the company behind Despicable Me, Minions, and the Secret Life of Pets.

If you’ve heard of the “Minions” (and by now, we’ll assume you have), you’re familiar with the work of Chris Meledandri and his company, Illumination Entertainment. Universal Pictures, which owns Illumination, purchased DreamWorks recently. This means Meledandri now has creative oversight of  both operations and all their offerings.

In this interview from the Marketplace archive, Meledandri talks to host Kai Ryssdal about $100 million failures, and billion dollar successes.
