PIXAR Visits Viz

 

Former student, Keith Klohn (effects technical-director) accompanied Ian Steplowski (character technical-director) and Robin McDonald (sr. technical recruiter) to Aggieland to meet with students, critique demo-reels, and discuss all things PIXAR. During an evening presentation, Keith presented examples of the challenges they faced producing Toy Story 3. Ian talked about the character evolution of Andy, one of the lead character in the film. Ian also discussed the changes PIXAR has made over the years in terms of how they more effectively and efficiently model and rig their CG characters.
