Concept art, behind the scenes info and a sneak peek at the 1st 40 minutes of the Monsters University movie. AMAZING!
The chance to go inside Pixar’s Headquarters in California was the experience of a lifetime for a Disney Pixar fan like me. (Except my kids are insanely jealous!)
Over the next 2 months I’ll be posting all kinds of inside scoop on ClassyMommy.com about my orientation experience at Monsters University along with sharing my recaps on interviews and meetings I had with Animators, Producers, and Directors of the upcoming Monsters University release slated for June 21st, 2013.
Until then – here are a few fun photos and a recap video of my experience as an MU student.
Here’s some cool concept art for Monsters University that is hanging in the halls of Pixar. These are gorgeous larger than life size paintings – absolutely beautiful!
The concept art is EVERYWHERE in the Pixar building. I felt like hanging out in Pixar was like being in an art gallery. Everything was totally themed out to their upcoming release for Monsters University. Before each movie, Pixar rotates all the art – so last year everything was themed out to BRAVE. We’re talking sculptures, water colors, sketches, and more. We could only photograph items from the 1st floor – these were great but trust me the hidden gems were in areas we couldn’t photograph – like the various drawings of how a character might look in tons of sketch options before they finalized the ultimate look for the animation.
And yes there really is the Pixar light paired with the classic Luxo ball just outside the entrance to the central building on campus. Love it!
