Today I conducted some research into the fundamentals featured in all Pixar films. There is by no means a blueprint for a Pixar film. If there were, there would be a whole lot more stories made with the precision and craft similar to Pixar films. But what we do find is a general framework, certain patterns and rhythms that repeat.
To begin with, Pixar films are always designed for all ages. Pixar creates stories which are interesting and appropriate for children, but also appeal to adults.
Other important elements of Pixar films include fantastic and impossible elements and events, and a sense of adventure.
Although every Pixar film is unique and special, I do not have enough time to analyse all fourteen films. Instead I have decide to do an in-depth analysis of my four favourite Pixar films, and their short film collection. The four films I will be analysing are:
- Toy Story
- Finding Nemo
This will provide a comprehensive overview of Pixar's films.
