CSULB Animation class gets opportunity to work with Pixar Animation Studios

Posted on July 24, 2017 by School of Art

IMG_6929This summer CSULB was highly honored to have Pixar work with our class ART311 Writing about Visual Art  – a section geared towards animation students. Spearheaded by Elyse Klaidman – Pixar Educational Outreach, Kim Diaz – Pixar Recruitment and Talent Outreach,  Beth Sasseen – Pixar University Relations and Aubry Mintz – CSULB Head of Animation. CSULB students were visited by a variety of Pixar artists throughout the summer term to help them develop ideas for their short animated films.
We were thrilled to work with Scott Morse, Domee Shi, Mary Coleman and Lelia Chesloff who presented to the class at different stages, teaching them about story, short films, the production pipeline and how to pitch their film ideas. These amazing artists also worked closely with our students to help them find and build their stories which they will hopefully produce in the coming semester.
We could not be more grateful to Pixar for such an enlightening and rich program!
