Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
In 1986, three visionaries - John Lasseter, Ed Catmull, and Steve Jobs - united to form Pixar Animation Studios. Combining their respective abilities in animation, computer graphics, and entrepreneurship, their goal was to create the very first feature length computer animated film. Against all odds and overcoming myriad obstacles, the tiny studio created "Toy Story" and single-handedly changed the course of animation forever. Twenty years later, and after seven groundbreaking, record-setting movies, the team at Pixar celebrates their journey in this full-colour compendium.Over 400 pieces of exquisite concept art, storyboard sketches, and photographs testify to Pixar's wild creativity. Over 50,000 words of text bring to life all the quirky personalities and the unique corporate culture they have fostered. With extensive and never-before-published interviews with John Lasseter, Ed Catmull, Steve Jobs, George Lucas, and Leonard Maltin, "To Infinity and Beyond!" functions as a textbook for future animators, as a fascinating business book, and as the art book of the season

Fancy treatment indeed, but the text and images live up to it.
The text is thorough and well written, and sprinkled with dozens of interviews with key Pixar people, including Ed Catmull, Steve Jobs and John Lasseter. It's accompanied by hundreds of examples of concept art, photographs, storyboards and fully rendered film images. Everything Pixar is covered, starting with the ten formative years before "Toy Story" (including Lasseter's firing by the Disney Company), through Pixar's acquisition by Disney in 2006.
I especially liked the photographs of voice talent (Ellen DeGeneres, Tom Hanks, Tim Allen) taken during recording sessions, and the many behind-the-scenes stories about making the movies. In one, John Lasseter describes how funny Tom Hanks was recording the "Toy Story" scene in which Woody tries to use Buzz's arm as a stand-in for the depressed Space Ranger: " I was laughing so hard, I almost ruined the take," Lasseter remembered. "I had to leave the room and go into the recording booth with the sound engineer."

This is the latest collection to my Pixar artbook. Almost immediately, I wrapped the book up to protect the cover from the elements. The bright green cover is made of cloth-like fabric and attracts dust easily. After picking it from my desk from photographing it, some parts of the cover had already became dirty!
Old school photos, high resolution renders, great writing filled the pages made of high quality paper stock.
It tells the history of Pixar animation studios before there was Pixar animation studios, all the way up to the Disney bought-over. It stops just right before Ratatouille or there would probably be more written on Brad Bird. You'll find the true meaning of passion, determination and the love for their art.
If you've owned other Pixar artbooks, you'll be pleased to note that there are quite a lot of new, never-been-printed photos in the book. You're going to see tons of new images.
(More pictures are available on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
First of all, I have to tell you that reading this book is much easear than the Illusion of life. As a person who can speak and read english very well, I do not mean that the level of the English in the book is simple, but It is much more understandable. Cause the way that author used to tell the story of the pixar is well planned, I guess.
The story begins with a simple intoduction about the book itself. Then, you start to read the detailed biographies of three guys that are the milestone in the Pixar Animation Studio and its succes: Ed Catmull, John Lesseter and Steve Jobs. Ed Catmull as a scientest who wants to be an artist an animator rather than a mathematic person; John Lesseter as an animator who can die for creating art on computer screens , and lastly a succesfull entrepreneur Steve Jobs who sees a bright future in front of this new technology.
You read their both profesionals and social experiences while trying to run a company. After finishing these parts, the real subject of the book start to appear on the pages. Detailed and well pictured sections of company's early TV commercials,short movies and amazing feature animations. You will find too many things about computer science, production management, animation and the art of telling a good story which is the most valuable key element of all kinds of art according to John Lesseter.
If you are a being living on this planet, you should have this book on your shelf. If you are an artist or a scientist, you have to have it as well. But, If you are an animator or an animation fan, please do not die unless you read, see , touch and smell this book. I could not find a better way to express How amazing this product is. Do not pay too much attention to the price of the book. Remember; you are not buying a book, you are just buying an unbelievable and spectecular history. It should not be that cheap!
