Pixar

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

So the other Geek Savants and I were able to have an (almost) all access tour of Pixar today. Super Ugly’s friend was able to walk us through every department, giving us a peek behind the curtains to nearly every aspect of the creative process. We even got to see a scene from ‘Up,’ which looks capital A-mazing.

The animation department was easily the coolest workplace I’ve ever seen, but John Lasseter’s office made me feel like a twelve year old boy. Wall to wall toys… I could have stared, hands and face pressed to the glass walls for hours.

It was a bit of sensory overload. I’m still trying to process it all. I have to say, I’ve been humbled and inspired by the experience. The latest episode of The Geek Savants details our time at Pixar. Check it out!
