Pixar reaserch

  1. 1. Animation studio Wednesday, 17 July 2013
  2. 2. At Lucasfilm Pixar were founded 1979 were they started a s a graphics devision of Lucasfilm’s. The mainly worked on effects, also at this time they created some of the first particle effects. But in 1986 they were bought out by Steve Jobs, this made them independent. At this point Pixar worked with other studios. Pixar founded Wednesday, 17 July 2013
  3. 3. How they animate Pixar use there own software that allows them to animate 3D models, then using powerful computers they can render these models, this is computer simulating the model this is how they make each frame. This process is very taxing on computers so they use a set of commuters known as a ‘Render farm’ to be dedicated to rending frames. They animate by playing all of the 100,000s of frames, showing a small amount of movement in each to build up then animation. This is standard animation, but as this is Pixar the amount of work that will go in to story boarding, and hand drawn artwork will be will be unmatchable to any other studio. Wednesday, 17 July 2013
  4. 4. Toy story In 1995 the first Toy Story was created by Pixar Animation Studio and Walt Disney Pictures with the original story but first of its kind the film did very well with the budget of $30.000.000 but then reaching $350,000,000 in the box office. The film was loves by all ages this was because most everyone could relate to the film in some way. This is why it did so well, this really showed them how much money could be made making this style of film. Wednesday, 17 July 2013
  5. 5. A Bugs Life In 1998 they released another new idea this time involving bugs as the core theme. They hoped spending more money on the production of the film would help it sell, but it some what backfired on them, the spent 120,000,000 making it. Then only making $350,ooo,ooo, the same amount for Toy Story. Wednesday, 17 July 2013
  6. 6. Toy Story 2 With the underachieving goal from A Bugs Life Pixar and Walt Disney went back to there original IP of Toy Story. In 1998 they released Toy story 2 spending $90,000,000, less then A Bugs Life, but then reaching 485,000,000 in the box office. This was really good for pixar as this film also got highly reviewed much like the first Toy Story. Wednesday, 17 July 2013
  7. 7. Finding Nemo Finding Nemo being released in 2003 was there first major success were they spent $94,000,000 and almost making 10x that back making $921,000,000 from the film.

Up was the first fully 3D animated feature film, Because of this the film did well, making $730,000,000 then costing them $175,000,000 was a good to see, this showed them that people liked 3D animated films.
