A Day at Pixar

Kevin Roebuck
Director, Digital Experience

Yesterday a very lucky group of us from the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive had the opportunity to take a private tour of Pixar Animation Studios. Our host was Dean of Pixar University, Randy Nelson. He spoke about the charter and their mission of inspiring creativity, innovation and storytelling. Randy talked a lot about their core mission of getting really smart people to collaborate and to not fear failure as it is the cornerstone of learning and innovation. Also, the importance of play and getting everyone to be a teacher. "Art is a team sport" he says. They walked us through some exhibits, experiences and collaborative exercises that showed us that it's all about people and the constant search for tools to create magic. We finished the tour in Pixar's private theater for a showing of the new short One Man Band. Here are some photos of the day. Thanks Pixar! See you at the movies

Cool. I made it on time.

    Neat, really neat.

    The page load took way too long.

    Maybe you could resize the pics for a smaller size (dimensionally and bytes wise) on the post page with links to the original pics.

    It would really be a big help to people who visit your blog quite often. :-)

    Wasn't Pixar bought out by Disney? Why hasn't the website changed to reflect this?
