A Pixar Story

I finally had a chance to watch A Pixar Story tonight. I highly recommend it for everyone. I love seeing that kind of passion, culture and innovation. For some serious motivation, watch it. It’s only 1hr 28m.

The 3 things that really resonated with me about creating a story is:
1. It’s all about the characters.
2. You have to be entertaining.
3. Don’t be afraid to start from scratch if it’s not right.

  1. this is on my netflix queue…im gonna watch it after we finish up lost. i love rewatching the 6 Days to South Park special, too but that’s cuz i really want a giant cintiq lol

  2. finally got to sit down n watch it with my fiance n our daughter…this movie is incredibly inspirational. i remember as a kid all the stuff happening with pixar and the animation industry switching to computer…Toy Story 1 and Toy Story 2 to Eisner getting ousted, an angry rant about the friggin teapot in 3D programs, and how, as a kid, i wished really bad i had the money to invest when pixar went public lol it was great to see the chalk pastel pieces of concept art from finding nemo and the incredibles. a professor of mine actually has the book for finding nemo.

  3. @1c549f9c981bff49f7628b6980f67f33:disqus yeh, this documentary was totally inspirational… gets me pretty fired up about design and trying to put more personality into all the things I design. It really makes you appreciate all the fine details…
