Ever think what the behind-the-scenes process of Toy Story 3 was like? Well, now you have the chance to find out – from the director and producer of the film, no less. On Sunday, October 10 (10/10/10!), Director Lee Unkrich and Producer Darla K. Anderson are part of a special panel at the Hamptons International Film Festival in New York, where they will talk about the filmmaking process of Pixar’s latest critical darling. Read on for full details if you are already attending, or are looking to atttend.
The website for the festival provides the following information about the panel:
The Hamptons Film Festival presents the Animation Master Class — an hour-long, in-depth conversation with TOY STORY 3 Director Lee Unkrich and Producer Darla K. Anderson. Delve into the making of this heartwarming worldwide hit that has garnered the best reviews of any film this year and has become the highest grossing animated film in history. With behind-the-scenes anecdotes, film clips and a question and answer session led by a member of the New York Film Critics Circle, this is sure to be one of the festival’s most exciting events.
While advance tickets are sold out, rush tickets will be sold at the door. Those who have already purchased tickets have to be there by 10:45 AM (panel starts at 11) to ensure entry. In the meantime, a standby line for rush tickets will form. Rush tickets are the same price as advance tickets were ($15). After 10:45, those on the standby line will be allowed to purchase rush tickets. Unfortunately, tickets for standy line members are not guaranteed.
The panel will be taking place at Guild Hall in East Hampton. The address for the building is 158 Main St, East Hampton, NY 11937-2721. For directions from your location to Guild Hall, click here.
I’ll be making the trek from New York City to catch the panel. My 3-hour train ride at 5:30 AM should be a hoot! I have a feeling, though, that it’ll be well worth it.
I hope to see some readers at the event! Stay tuned for my full report of the panel.
