Have you ever wondered how Pixar makes their films? In this hour-long talk, Director Pete Docter (Inside Out, Up, Monsters, Inc) explains the extraordinary process filmmakers work through to make an idea come to life. Watch below.
We knew from the moment we heard that Pixar film director Pete Docter was working on a film about emotions, that it was going to find a special place in our hearts. In fact, just days before we had even seen the movie, our team had already decided our next For the Love of Pixar fan art show needed the theme of 'Inside Out'. And so the eight month planning journey began...
This year's show featured 200+ entries from 150 artists - including the work of 90+ children from Page Private School in Costa Mesa, CA, and Newbreak Playschool in San Diego. We also saw many international entries from artists in England, Spain, Mexico, the Philippines, and all over the US.
Below are several photos from our show - including some from photographers Lisa Diaz (her Instagram profile here) and Jaron Apalategui. Our sincere thanks to them for helping us document the details of the day.
With the help of 725 or so guests who stopped by between February 26-27, our volunteers, our partners (Newbreak Church, Tap Lighting, Print Post), the bands (Nations, Mason James McDonough, the Witty Banters), and artists, we were able to raise nearly $1,800 for the following three organizations: Krochet Kids, intl., Give Clean Water and Ocean Beach Elementary School.
Thank you to everyone who supported us and continues to get behind this crazy project! We really could not have done it with out you.
