It’s a rare skill to be able to make a film that traverses age gaps and appeals across generations of people, however for years now Pixar has proven time and time again why it is one of the best skills to have in your arsenal. Everyone has seen at least one Pixar film in their lifetime and everyone has their favourites, and I would offer that their mass appeal is down to one simple aspect of their film making: the ability to find the fantastical in the normal.
Animation is the one type of movie that really does play for the entire audience. Our challenge is to make stories that connect for kids and adults. - John Lasseter
The reason I am so passionate about the medium of animation, in particular Pixar, is their universal appeal. It is an amazing skill to be able to create a film which not only entertains children, but has enough substance to keep an adult audience engaged.
