Profile of Pixar


Fig 1: Pixar

Pixar Animation Studio is an American computer animation film studio based in Emeryville, California. Pixar has earned 26 Academy Awards and acknowledgments. It is best worldwide for its CGI-animated feature films created with reaistic Render Man, the industry-standard Render Man  application programming used to generate high-quality images. Pixar began in 1979.
Pixar has produced films in the last two decades, starting with Toy Story in 1995. It was followed after by A Bug's Life in 1998, Toy Story 2 in 1999, Monsters, Inc. in 2001, Pixar to date, the highest animated film of all-time,  over $1 billion worldwide) in 2010, and Cars 2 in 2011. At least eleven of the films have received critical and financial success, but was still a standard film appeared to the others. John Lasseter, became Chief Creative Officer of both Pixar and the Walt Disney Animation Studios.



Fig 2: Walle



Walle is more than a machine Walle has feelings. Stanton a writer states “But Wall-E is alluring, and not because he’s got big eyes or dangling eyelashes but because he’s smart, hard-working, with a romantic side, and is hopelessly addicted to watching clips of Michael Crawford and Barbra Streisand in Gene Kelly’s ‘Hello Dolly!’ on a video screen. He’s everything we should have been if we hadn’t put all our energy into destroying the planet.” (Stanton) Walle is very alluring that in a world where there no humans only Walle and his friendly insect lives. The point that there is no sound but the work that Walle does every day.  The film Walle is not just a machine where he doesn’t think of terrible things. Instead Walle is romantic character in this movie. He loves to watch clips in Gene Kelly’s ‘Hello Dolly’. This is very amusing to see a Walle a machine who has feeling that is similar to human. This is much related to human’s love of each other. As this has a resemblance to how Walle feels.

Toying with our emotions ... Lots-O-Huggin' Bear, Buzz Lightyear and Woody in Toy Story 3.  

Toy story 3 is direct not to children but to parents. Bradshaw a writer states “The humour, the drama, everything in the film seems targeted more at the parents than the children.” (Bradshaw) This is very true because it shows of parent’s childhood as when they had toys they did let go of their toys. Maybe some did not own toys when they were young.  So Toy Story brings back the memory’s and parents who wish maybe they did not let go of their toys and kept them. So toy story is very emotion because of this sense of feeling that is directed to the adults.
