"Once I wanted to try doing X to improve our animation quality but we had never done that in our company before that day. When I presented that idea to others nobody was convinced, but then I decided to explain it to everyone in person and gave a presentation in front of everyone and I also addressed all the queries from my team in person. Once all the doubts were cleared we started working on it and then it actually turned out to be a really good idea and everyone was happy in the end."
This question will help the interviewer in understanding your problem solving skills and how you convince others. A good team player is the one who understands his team and also knows how to convince others. Describe your process - is it by working with the team one-on-one to get their buy-in? Did you bring everyone into a room and whiteboard the fully vetted idea? Did you ask for the team to help you brainstorm it from being unpopular to becoming popular?

"I admire XYZ a lot because of the work he has done in our profession. Some day in the future I want to as successful as him and hope that I will be admired by our future generations for what I did."
Depending on your area of focus, this could go as far back as the earliest animators (Disney, Hanna, Barbera, etc.) If your career is in games, online, video, movies, then additional knowledge of the pioneers and industry mavericks is needed to answer this question. Be prepared to defend/backup as to why you chose that person over their contemporaries. This isn't a throwaway question, it could be the one that shows you are a true professional in your field.
