Today I did some further work on story and character; and completed that section of my website. Story and character is vitally important to Pixar's film making process, as Pixar has a "story first" approach in all of their films.
Over the process of researching and creating my Major Work, I have learnt how Pixar values story and character in their films. Pixar's films speak passionately to the audience. They share emotional stories that resonate with everyone, and include relatable characters.
The medium of animation has the capacity to entertain, exaggerate, simplify, abstract, reveal, and clarify.
This makes the medium a perfect vehicle for storytelling and character development. The art form has the capacity to explore insightful social commentary, portray the human condition, and tackle difficult and uncomfortable subject manners.
This is why I am so passionate about animation. The only limit to the medium is your imagination.
My English Major Work on Pixar Animation Studios, has helped me to become a better storyteller, writer, and character creator. Through examining some of the most purest and perfected forms of storytelling and character development, presented in Pixar's films, I feel as if my own ability to create worlds, and fill them with believable characters has improved.
