Funny! Twenty-Five Years of Laugh­ter from the Pixar Story Room

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame - By Ja­son Katz [Chron­i­cle Books, $29.95]

Cre­atives know all too well that de­spite the blood, sweat and tears you pour in, some­times you just have to “kill your ba­bies.” This harsh mantra is the key to craft­ing a story for an­i­ma­tion that works, and can be in­voked any time from con­cept de­vel­op­ment to pro­duc­tion crunch time. Luck­ily, Pixar story su­per­vi­sor Ja­son Katz ( Find­ing Nemo, Rata­touille, Toy Story 3) and his co­horts have res­cued some of their ba­bies from the cut­ting room floor for this comedic col­lage.

From Toy Story to The Good Di­nosaur, the artists fea­tured in this book have de­liv­ered some of the most hi­lar­i­ous gags to hit the big screen. Now, you can also ex­plore some of the hun­dreds of joke gems that never made it. Clas­sic Pixar mo­ments are show­cased and ex­plored in-depth along­side some of the hun­dreds of left­overs. Page down mem­ory lane, pore over never-be­fore-pub­lished art­work and take in some wis­dom from Katz and John Las­seter, who pro­vides the fore­word. Fi­nally, you can see Sad­ness wear­ing mom jeans.
