This weekend, Harry Knowles and the AICN crew, will host a special screening of documentary The Pixar Story with director Leslie Iwerks in attendance. It’s all happening at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. More on the documentary:
In the mid 1980’s, three men united together to follow a dream: Ed Catmull, John Lasseter and Steve Jobs pushed beyond the boundaries of what was known in the world of art and science to form Pixar Animation Studios.
In 1995, the company’s Academy Award winning computer animated film, TOY STORY, ignited an entirely new animation industry, and their ensuing seven films have entertained millions of people worldwide. Yet over the last twenty years the company’s dramatic journey has often been one of struggle and commitment as they paved their way into an unknown medium. Through never before seen archival footage, candid interviews, and visually stunning art and animation, Oscar nominated director Leslie Iwerks takes us inside the unique world of Pixar.
