Remember when I went up to PIXAR Campus a few months back to learn about the upcoming film Inside Out from the animators and the rest of the crew? Well I have some fun new info to share! We sat down with Ronnie del Carmen and Josh Cooley (WHO just happens to be Co-Director for Toy Story 4) to learn how Inside Out when from Script To Screen.Everything with Pixar begins with an idea. Everything is fluid in between. For example they spend hours and hours on the character. Who is this character? What is his/her back story. What does this character look like? Then the story begins. They write out the entire story on a storyboard. What is a storyboard?
The Storyboarding process fascinates me. We went through what an actual session would be like. The person(s) presenting have a pointer and go through each card and “act” it out along with telling you key points as to what you see so that your imagination along with the animation that has been drawn out, as well as dialogue all fit together to give you a firm idea of the vision they have created.. Like I said, fascinating. You can immediately tell during a storyboarding session if something is off or disrupts the flow of the story.
Then we had a drawing lesson and for these guys drawing out one thing for Inside Out takes seconds. A more complex sketch takes only minutes. However they draw hundreds of drawings every single day. Most of these drawings are never even seen publicly. I’ve done a few of these drawing lessons over the years and I truly believe it’s a god given talent I wish I had. However, my Anger wasn’t too shabby…although let’s face it I’m not quitting my day job:
