Get Animated – with Disney Pixar’s Inside Out

Are you ready for more Inside Out fun? With this amazing new Pixar movie set to release on June 19th in theaters, I can’t wait to share more about this fun film.

One of the things we (bloggers) got to do while visiting the Pixar Studios site was to sit down with the animators and get a feel for what their day is like. Each day they have a meeting to share what each of them are working on and to critique each other. They give ideas and suggestions on how to make the scene better.

When an animator shares a particular scene they are working on, story artist Tony Fucile with sometimes do “draw overs”. These help the animators address notes from the film’s director, Pete Docter. It is kinda of like using a piece of transparency film over the top of a piece of art. The notes and drawings are all there, but the original is still in tact — it is just all done digitally.

It is really fun to see how minor changes like increasing the arch of eyebrows, or softening an expression can have such a big impact on a scene.

Once a scene is perfected (which can take weeks) and approved, they move on to another. Each artist takes the notes given for each scene and goes back to their office to work on the suggestions and bring the changes back to present again.
