Post 123: Creative [and Semi-False] Interviews

Hi everyone! Ed Catmull has put out the new book,Creativity, Inc., has dropped and his are some interviews to go with it.

"A true pioneer in the animation industry, Ed Catmull openly and honestly shares insights along his journey to being the head of both Pixar Animation Studios and [Walt] Disney Animation Studios in his new book Creativity, Inc.. In a recent interview with Nightline, we get a brief history of computer animation, an overview of Catmull's new book and even a short tour of Pixar studios (including the famed secret office, the "love lounge").

The six minute video from Nightline can be watched below, but it should be noted that one part of the interview contains an inaccurate piece dialogue. The voiceover states that Pixar won their first Academy Award for Luxo, Jr. when in fact the first win for the studio was for Tin Toy in 1988."


"An additional video featuring Ed Catmull discussing Creativity, Inc. was also on Good Morning America and can be seen below. The interview also touches on the Toy Story 2 fiasco which almost saw the complete deletion of the Pixar's first sequel (this is also discussed in greater detail in Creativity, Inc.)." -Pixar Post http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/pixar-ed-catmull-reveals-secrets-movie-magic-23437086
