THE PIXAR STORY
a film by Leslie IWERKS
In the mid 1980’s, three men united together to follow a dream: Ed Catmull, John Lasseter and Steve Jobs pushed beyond the boundaries of what was known in the world of art and science to form Pixar Animation Studios. In 1995, their Academy Award® winning computer animated film, Toy Story, launched an entirely new animation industry, and their ensuing films have entertained millions of people worldwide. Yet over the last twenty years, Pixar’s dramatic rise has often been one of struggle, belief and sheer commitment as they forged their way into an unknown medium. The result has been a serendipitous blend of art, science, business acumen, and extraordinary vision and talent. Through never before seen archival footage, candid interviews, and visually stunning art and animation, Oscar® and Emmy® nominated director Leslie Iwerks takes us inside the fascinating and unique world of Pixar Animation Studios.
