THE PIXAR STORY

By bestedit1
Written December 14, 2007
Amazingly entertaining documentary about the most successful studio in film history. Besides the founders and artists of the company, George Lucas, Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and veteran Disney animators are interviewed. There are great little-known stories of the company's genesis. The film is inspiring in its portrayal of visionaries who never gave up. Beautiful cinematography and editing in this perfectly crafted film. Excellent narration by Stacy Keach and wonderful score by award-winning composer Jeff Beal (UGLY BETTY, MONK, HBO's ROME).

This movie provided a really interesting look into the history of Pixar and its relationship with Disney. I would have liked to see more background on Pixar itself including writers, and a bit less on Disney. Overall a really great movie!

For anyone who is a dreamer and believes that they can dare to achieve the impossible. For animation buffs, Disney buffs, and the underdogs who never give up. This story showcases the very human heart and soul behind art and technology, and how the two combined has inspired and changed the world.

The Best Documentary I have Seen

By Bljashinsky
Written December 15, 2007
The event was great and the theater was packed with hardcore Disney/Pixar fans. The documentary was just amazing, and the film print was just pristine, which really brought all the many different color filters used to highlight different emotions for shots. It was easily one of the most comprehensive and entertaining company documentaries I have ever seen. The Q/A was a bit short, but was still quite entertaining nonetheless with Roy joking about being 97 the next time he will need to save the Disney company. They also took a few questions from the audience, and were great at sharing stories about not only Disney, but also Pixar as well. The best part about Roy Disney is how honest he was, and how none of his answers seemed manufactured or that he was holding back what we wanted to say.

The Pixar Story

By busterfilms
Written December 15, 2007
Pixar, now a national treasure, is also a result of triumph of the un-enfranchised outsider over the hegemonic/tyrannical mindset of traditional Hollywood (Disney) moguls. These renegades stormed the gates and by trusting their gut, wanting to create just plain fun AND thought-provoking stories, and by true creative collaboration they re-wrote the rules. It's a story that is both a business lesson and life lesson for us all -- and visionary in every aspect: technological, storytelliing and financial. After all, this is show business -- and they got it, and taught the business what is the real show the public wants to see.
