Pixar's goal is not just to make a great animated film or a blockbuster, but to create films and characters that retain significance to the audience. Pixar's stories themselves do not end with the credits, but that we take with us and hold on to aspects of these films for the rest of our lives.
Today I began conducting research into what makes these characters so successful, and how Pixar manages to present them with so much humanity; despite the fact many of them are not human characters.
This truly inspired me.
The ability of Pixar to create, develop and design characters that connect and resonate with me in such a way, is truly incredible. Due to Pixar's genius in character design and development, I have become a huge fan of their work.
Character design is a vital component of Pixar's work. Character is what drives the story and breaths life into a film.
The design of characters for the film begins during the initial stages of the development of the film. Pixar's character designers work with the director as the script is still being written to bring the characters to life.
