{January 1, 2016}   The Science Behind Pixar

Today,  the first day of the new year,  we did something fun and what we’ve wanted to for a while.

And before it’s too late! The exhibit,  The Science Behind Pixar, is coating soon! It’s a good thing we went,  PSM was getting tired of me sarong we need to go!

This is a great exhibit, talking about the science behind Pixar, how is not just about drawing cartoons, it’s math and equations and broken down pixel by pixel. Modeling, what they think up to use for those models, the curl of hair and the look and flow of every motion, color, the emotions the slightest gesture and lighting can create. How to make it believable, in the air, under water. It was really interesting and a great leaning experience.

Besides the fact that I am just a big kid,  I was in heaven! They said if you didn’t have kids,  you could get through it in about thirty minutes and with kids,  about an 1.5 hours.  Since I am a big kid,  we split the difference,  we were there about an hour! Besides,  I’m still someone’s kid! Thanks dad!

When I was an undergrad in one of my film classes,  we were working on rotoscoping and animation and morphing and so much more and I remember we saw the Pixar animated lamp short, our mouths dropped open,  we were amazed! So many amazing things were to come!

And how true those words were! Toy Story, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, Brave, The Incredibles, Cars, Inside Out,  just to name a few.

If you’re in Boston, check it out before January 10th.

Happy 2016! What’s next?
