'Monsters University' Animation Progression Video

Monsters University News

Animation is no easy process; each second of film takes countless hours of work from dozens of people. Pixar has done a great job explaining their complex animation process over the years, distilling it down to its most basic steps. Last month we posted a brief breakdown of a shot from Monsters University, and now Pixar (via Stitch Kingdom) has released a more extensive look at how the same sequence came to life.

With its distinct lighting and bustling background crowds, this scene is a perfect choice to show off the hard work that goes into every Pixar film — and how successfully it all comes together in the end.

Monsters University is now in US theaters and continues to open worldwide this month. Expect more features like this on the forthcoming Blu-ray release.
