Inspired: Deanna Marsigliese, The Art of the Pivot
Inspiration isn’t instant. Coming up with unique and creative characters takes time and effort. Character Designer Deanna Marsigliese takes us through the process of character creation and the artistic detours that often come with it.
Inspired: Steven Hunter, For That Kid
Growing up in a small town in Canada, Steven Hunter never felt like he saw himself represented in cartoons and comic books. After getting the opportunity to direct a Pixar SparkShort, Steven was inspired by his own life to create ‘Out,’ a unique and vulnerable story he wished he saw in his youth.
Inspired: Jessica Heidt, Who Gets All the Lines?
Script Supervisor Jessica Heidt manages endless lines of dialogue. Through her script access, she detected a disparity in male to female roles, motivating her to create a program to improve gender balance throughout Pixar’s films and the greater film industry.
Inspired: Dan Scanlon, Where Ideas Come From
Inspiration can be hard to come by. Sometimes it takes years to find, while other times it’s been right under your nose. Director Dan Scanlon takes us on a personal journey of inspiration that led to his film, Onward.
