Last Friday Ed, Boris & I got a sneaky peek at the PIXAR 20 year anniversary exhibition that opened at the Science Museum this weekend.
We recreated the expressions of the Bob parr sculpts above. Uncanny resemblance isn't it?
Most reviews of the show cite the special PIXAR zoetrope below as the highlight but for me it was the 'artscape' installation. A mega-widescreen projection of a specially produced film that flies the viewer THROUGH all the concept art on screen. It's so immersive & 3-dimensional that you feel like you're IN the artwork.
Saturday morning we went along to the NFT where Osnat Shurer & Jan Pinkava from PIXAR were hosting a retrospective screening of all the 'silent' PIXAR shorts (ie. all of them apart from MIKE's NEW CAR or JACK-JACK ATTACKS). We were privvy to the British premiere of ONE MAN BAND which is good fun. Great editing, location design & top animation as usual.
