Project Affiliation:

    Pixar Animation Studios


    Lightyear, Pixar’s sci-fi action adventure, is the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear, the hero who inspired the toy. In this Production Session, blast off with the crew as they trace their challenging journey to create a cohesive visual look that was both stylistically unique yet referential to the Toy Story world. This multidisciplinary group includes sets, characters, shading, tailoring & simulation, effects, compositing, and lighting. Their mission was one of ultimate complexity as they faced technological and artistic challenges all while racing against the clock to finish the film. In the end, thanks to the heroic efforts of the crew, their mission was a success – not even Zurg could stop them.
