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