How Pixar Built Toy Story 3

Well worth a read!

Quote:
Screenwriter William Goldman once famously declared that the most important fact of life in Hollywood is that “nobody knows anything.” It was his way of describing a reality that continues to haunt the movie business: Studio executives have no idea which pictures will make money.

Unless, of course, those pictures are made by Pixar Animation Studios. Since 1995, when the first Toy Story was released, Pixar has made nine films, and every one has been a smashing success.

This is what Pixar does best, they have some of the best visionaries, sketch artists, animators and story tellers that have come from various different studios and backgrounds and they culminate them all together.

It's something to be said of Pixar that i've never watched a bad film from their Studios, i've watched some that might have been better than those that went before them, but I can honestly say, each and every pixar film be it a feature film or a short has been a magical experience.

Regarding pixar (didn't want to make a new thread for this) I recently bought the Collection box of their classics .

Bug's life was actually one of my top 3 movies from when I was a kid... Awesome to see it on dvd instead of vhs... Also quite fun to hear them in English, the swedish voice actors are actually better according to me, they have more personality...
To what I was going to say...
I watched the features disc to the incredibles and I must say that their storyboarding is amazing! Extremely thorough. I recommend you guys to see it...
