A Day At Pixar

You may know him, or you may not, but he’s name is synonymous with Pixar.  John Lasseter, the guy in charge of many movies done at Pixar.  This video you’re about to see is just a day at what Mr. Lasseter does.  I must say that’s his home is the amazing.  Trains, toys, and other fun stuffs.  The man is a kid stuck in a man’s body.  Then he takes you to Pixar.  Now if you’re into 3D or animation, this place is the holy grail of them all.  You’d actually want to stay here and not leave.  If you’re watching the video though, there is a sense of fearness in some of the people though.  Is it cause their afraid of the camera or just the stress of creating a movie that’s better than the previous.

If you’ve got time, grab some snacks and relax because what you’re about to see is one of the best “A day in the life..” video in recent years.

 

Cars 2 Out Today

Well, looks like the race is back on. I wonder what new obstacles Lightning Mcqeen will have here? Will he travel around the world? I’m not sure, but you’ll probably see some cameos from the Planes movie.

Toy Story 3: Is It The End?

Saw the third installment of Toy Story.  I gotta say that Pixar never disappoints.  There’s a lot more great point than bad points.  Probably the only bad points were that it’s darker (literally in tone and environment for the youngins) than the last two and they didn’t have a music number like “You’ve Got A Friend In Me”.  Believe me, I’m not into music numbers in during a movie.

As always the animation was top notch.  What’s funny was when ever I see Ken and Barbie interacting, I was always thinking of Robot Chicken.  The way Ken and Barbie moved was exactly how the characters in the Robot Chicken skits moved.  It was hilarious.  If you’re a big anime fan, you should have noticed Totoro in one of the scenes.  They should have put Voltron in there to help out Buzz.  That would have been great.

I thought the story was pretty good as well and you might be surprised at the end with what all the toys including Buzz and Woody went through.  I don’t know if the ending is sad or happy or both, but Toy Story 3 is or will be another classic added to Pixar’s catalog (which is every freaking movie they made).

A Little Insight At Pixar

Recently there have been some articles that take a look at what it’s like to work for a production company.  Well over at Techland, they show some videos from the Toy Story DVD.  The DVD shows the experience of some of the people who work at Pixar.  I’m not certain how old the interviews are, but its quite interesting to watch.  To those that do CG animation or VFX,  remember you don’t need it to be perfect because there are people whose whole job is to make it not perfect.  Head on over to Techland to view their article.  Now, what I’m wondering is how many of their employees were interns before they got hired?

Brad Bird Direct Mission: Impossible IV NOW!

I was reading “The Hollywood Reporter” and found out Brad Bird is being considered to direct Mission: Impossible IV.  I think he would be an excellent choice and would add a fresh spin to this action series.  Brad Bird isn’t known for his live action films, but his animated features “The Iron Giant” and Pixar’s “The Incredibles” were some of the best animated action feature films in recent history with great action and even greater stories.  J.J. Abrams, the master of live action TV shows is still involved in MI4, so he would be able to give pointers to Mr. Bird if he needs it.  Will Bird need pointers?  Of course not!  It’s only a live action movie.  Brad Bird, direct Mission: Impossible IV NOW!
