Catmull on Creativity

Ed Catmull News

luxoharvardEd Catmull, president of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, has written a very detailed piece on Pixar’s creative culture for the Harvard Business Journal.

Catmull touches on how Pixar innovates in art and technology and the risks they take to achieve this through change. He talks about the company’s beginnings as a research group, through the production of Toy Story, the Disney merger, and beyond; and how they’ve kept their culture, and plan to keep it, for a long time. The article is 7 pages long and full of fun tidbits that should keep Pixar fans (especially those inetersted in the behind-the-scenes action) interested.
