Consider it the Blu-ray pre-release tour. Maybe I’m exaggerating, but it’s like having the film’s special features live — a month before release:
Sunday, September 12th
Art of Toy Story 3 Artists Panel
In the LA area? Pixarians Robert Kondo (Set Art Director) and James Robertson (Story Artist) are scheduled to appear at Gallery Nucleus this Sunday (tomorrow!) for a special presentation followed by a Q&A opportunity. Afterwards, the talented duo will sign copies of The Art of Toy Story 3.
Entrance is extra-affordable at only $2 dollars per person. Can’t make it? Please visit the presentation’s official page to order a signed book.
Toy Story 3 screenwriter, Michael Arndt, is set to make an appearance at the Austin Film Festival to conduct two insightful talks.
• Pixar Story Development Process: Mary Coleman and Emily Zuluaf (Dev. Execs) join Arndt to discuss the studio’s steps towards fostering original ideas. These include research trips and feedback from the Brain Trust.
• How 4 Years of Creative Agony Became 93 Minutes of Movie Fun: Also led by Arndt, this talk is accompanied by reels from various stages of Toy Story 3 production to exemplify missteps and how they were rectified by the time the film was completed.
For more information, including tickets and a full list events, please check out the official website of the Austin Film Festival.
