Pixar Exhibition at ACMI

Posted: September 21, 2007 in Disney, Pixar

Yesterday we went to the Pixar 20 Years Of Animation exhibition at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image at Federation Square. Here is a few of the pictures that we took. Enjoy.

Here are some scans of some of the stuff we got from the Pixar Exhibition. The ticket has a nice stylized drawing of Mike and Sully from Monster’s Inc.The programme has Mike and Sully too.
This is an early drawing of Woody from Toy Story. Apparently Woody was originally going to be a ventriloquist’s dummy until one of the Pixar team suggested that a cowboy would work so much better. All this images were available as a postcard and as a print.
This is a story board of the short film “Knick Knack”.
An early concept sketch for Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story.
A painting that was used for Ratatouille.

Modern computer animation no longer uses model sheets when designing a character or when instructing the animators how a character should look in a certain pose. Instead they use maquettes, which is a 3D model of the character that can be moved around in different positions to give the animators an idea of scale and how the character should look. Personally I prefer the old model sheets, but that’s just me.

I saw these maquettes at the Pixar 20 Years of Animation exhibition at ACMI at Federation Square in Melbourne.
