To be able to accurately describe the Pixar movie-making process in a short presentation sounds like a difficult concept but presenters Michael B. Johnson, Ricky Nierva, and Scott Clark did just that at the EG Conference back in April. Sure, presenting every aspect of making a Pixar film would take an incredibly long time, but the three do a fantastic job at providing the audience with snippets of the production process of Up. Read on to watch the fascinating 20-minute presentation here!
UPDATE: The video has been set to private, so it is no longer viewable.
From seeing the late-great Joe Ranft’s storyboards for the storyboarding process to the symbolism of squares and circles in Up to the progression of the film’s animation from blocking to final, it is not difficult to see how much creativity is on display here.
What can be harder to fully comprehend is how many people have to work on a film like Up before audiences around the world view a completed product. Like Johnson states, it takes many, many people to make a Pixar movie.
Doesn’t this get your own creative juices flowing?
