  7. 7. Key  Character A  key  character  in  the  Pixar’s  studio  development  is  Luxo  Jr  who  was  the  first  character  introduced  in  Pixar’s  first   film  ‘Luxo  Jr’.  Luxo  is  hopping  desk  lamp  that  has  become  so  iconic,  Pixar  has  incorpora1ng  Luxo  into  their  logo   represen1ng  the  I. Luxo  appears  in  the  first  short  animated  film  where  the  only  two  characters  are  desk  lamps.  Luxo  Jr  and  a  bigger   lamp  are  playing  with  a  small  inflated  rubber  ball,  chasing  it  and  trying  to  balance  on  it.  The  ball  eventually   deflates  due  to  Luxo  Jr  jumping  on  it.   This  short  film  received  an  academy  reward  nomina1on  for  best  animated  short  film.  Luxo  Jr  was  the  first  CGI   film  nominated.   This  character  brings  great  significance  to  computer  anima1on  history  ,  quote  -­‐  "Luxo  Jr.  sent  shock  waves   through  the  en1re  industry  –  to  all  corners  of  computer  and  tradi1onal  anima1on.  At  that  1me,  most  tradi1onal   ar1sts  were  afraid  of  the  computer.  They  did  not  realize  that  the  computer  was  merely  a  different  tool  in  the   ar1sts  kit  but  instead  perceived  it  as  a  type  of  automa1on  that  might  endanger  their  jobs.  Luckily,  this  altude   changed  drama1cally  in  the  early  80s  with  the  use  of  personal  computers  in  the  home.  The  release  of  our  Luxo   Jr.  ...  reinforced  this  opinion  turnaround  within  the  professional  community.” Edwin  Catmull.  Tuesday, 1 May 2012
  8. 8. Key  Technology Pixar  use  CGI  anima1on  to  create  their  feature  films.  All  Pixar  films  to  date  have  been   computer  animated  features  apart  from  WALL-­‐E  which  features  a  small  live  ac1on   segment.   CGI  or  ‘Computer  Generated  Imagery’  is  the  process  for  genera1ng  animated  images  by   using  computer  graphics.  CGI  works  like  this:  although  the  computer  generated  images   of  landscapes  may  be  sta1c,  The  computer  anima1on  only  applies  to  dynamic  images   that  resemble  a  movie.  Tuesday, 1 May 2012
