How do you inspire some of the most creative people in the world to think in new ways and to approach learning as fun? Randy Nelson is the Director of Pixar University. I found out today that Randy will probably join the digital hollywood forum at Sun in August. Pixar University has more than 110 courses: a complete filmmaking
curriculum, classes on painting, drawing, sculpting and creative writing. Every employee -- whether an animator, technician, production
assistant, accountant, marketer or security guard -- is encouraged to
devote up to four hours a week, every week, to his or her education. I can't wait to hear more about the ways that Pixar's famous culture works and how we may be able to share those techniques with the teachers and students we meet around the world in the coming fiscal year.
