Title:

    Smash and Grab: Off the Rails Filmmaking at Pixar

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    In 2016, Pixar launched an internal, experimental storytelling initiative to enable new creative voices, as well as explore alternative storytelling techniques, pipelines, and workflows in production. Filmmakers are granted total creative freedom to develop a story, design a world, and produce a short film, within six months, and without any executive supervision. Smash and Grab is a seven minute short film that explores the use of comic book sketches, virtual production, motion/camera capture and procedural shading and lighting techniques. With the backdrop of a busy feature studio, limited resources, and a minimal crew, this talk is the story of our journey.
