Pixar Visits!

Hey there.

Shot some photos of the peeps (Steve Hunter (Former Sheridan-ite!) and Bob Scott) visiting from Pixar today.

Here's a photo of the two of whom I speak anyways (with Steve on the right and Bob on the left):



Check out the 'do! (he's one of the three caballeros! (See The Incredibles DVD for more info!))



I don't know if I'm going to be on shaky ground for posting these next few photos, but suffice to say that these images are by Pixar artists and are all Copyright of Pixar. They are not my work, I just wanted to post them because I thought what they showed was cool.



Bob maquette.



A Bob "Model Sheet" that helped keep the animator's on model.



Some facial expression examples that the animators were given to stay on model.



A wicked close-up of the image before.



Storyboard.



Blocking.



Pose Test.



Final.

I started paying attention and stopped shooting at this point. Sorry for the crappy images - I didn't want to use a flash so they're kinda noisy. Ok, really noisy.

Laters.

[update] So I just wanted to say that as of today I'm being considered for a story and art intern at Pixar. I had a great interview and Bob, Steve, and Dawn, who all seemed really enthusiastic about the quality of the artwork coming out of Sheridan. I'll keep you updated on this for sure!

HIII! man, I'm sorry, but this is the first time I've managed to view your blog! Haha, for some reason my comp. doesn't like the Active X controller (whatever that is...)
Looks like you got decent seats at the Pixar shindig, I managed to squeeze in, I stood at the back :p

Woops, my sentence didn't come as clear as I wanted now, did it?

I was in the VERY back, STILL losing my glasses so I was semi-blind and most of the show to me sound like a radio live show. So thanks VERY much for taking those piccies. I really appreciate it.

Hi there,

To anonymous- I'm not sure! But I hope they will. As I said - they seemed really enthusiastic about the quality of Sheridan's work.

Stephani - are you sure? Everything works fine on all the computer I've tried it on. Can you say which specifically?

Hey Mel - that's really wierd. I tried taking off some of the things that need 'activeX controllers' - did it really stop you from being able to view my entire blog? That's definetly not a good thing... Hehe, actually, I was at the back row sitting, I just had to zoom in with my camera.

H - is that Halya? If it is, why don't you have a blog, sucka? And why doesn't your mom have one either?

Hey Ed, yeah, I'm really excited about the internship thing. I'll make sure to tell everyone about it! It's crazy how fast information spreads at Sheridan, geez!

Er, I meant I coudn't see clearly during the Pixar meeting.I was in the VERY back, STILL losing my glasses so I was semi-blind and most of the show to me sound like a radio live show.

So thanks VERY much for taking those piccies. I really appreciate it.
