From a german interview with the Quays:
"In 2015 Christopher Nolan filmed a short documentary about you. How did the world's commercial director want to make a movie about you?

Very exciting. The best thing was that he came to our studio, which is our house, and filmed with a 35 mm camera that he operated himself. And he knows very well what he is doing, when he was a young man doing experimental films. He sees the animation like us and realizes that the miniatures have their own kingdom and it is immense. And one year after doing the short, he offered to produce a movie with the condition that it would not last more than 25 minutes and that we shot it in 35 mm. And, clear, we accepted charmed. We sent a kind of script and confessed that he understood nothing but did not matter because he trusted us. We finished filming a month ago and now we are working on the assembly."

So he's producing but not directing or writing. Interesting. Still cool.

I'd like Nolan to produce more new talent outside of directing. He'd really put some newcomers on the map with modest budget debuts.

The part below is clearly speaking about Nolan haha
There was an degree of pressure at the Quays Atelier Koninck QbfZ. A mysterious benefactor had about a year and half earlier commissioned the Quays to make a film. Not a specific item for him personally. But, generously, to do what they did best. Make their own idea into a film. Institutions around the world aren’t exactly lining up to fund their films in this age of bottom line financial mania. The Quays were actually mid-way through another project when this person approached them. But since it was digital and he being interested in film rather than digital creations, he wasn’t so keen on it. One of his stipulations was that it be shot on 35mm film stock with their old cameras. But he basically said here’s a certain amount. Would you like to make a a real film out of it? What could they say? Why, yes! And now he was coming to check out what they had done on the 19th of December. And I had arrived on the 12th. So essentially my visit was a break in round-the-clock filming and editing (digitally then transferred back to film stock).
