A lot of great stuff in this link where John Lasseter talks and answers questions.
To Infinity and Beyond Buzz Lightyear’s
John Lasseter is the main drive behind the Toy Story films, which made me want to become an animator back in the mid 90′s. A lot of really good insights in this link. John has been one of my biggest inspirations for so long, as well as Brad Bird and Lee Unkrich. All three very different directors with different ways of dealing with their films/crews. Be sure to check the clip out.
I also learned that he briefly spoke about Animation Mentor in the clip (around 54:56) in such a way that it made my day. We worked very hard over the years on getting the School going, so the mega-nerd in me was speechless when I heard John speak about AM in such a way.
Ok, back to the real world.
