This project had multiple levels of importance to me: it was one of my very last at Perception, it had an amazing team that poured themselves into the project, and it was a film that I could share with my own children. But as you imagine, the most powerful aspect was collaborating with the one and only Pixar.
The 'Main-on-End' title sequence for Pixar's Lightyear.
"I’m thrilled to say this wasn't a ‘DONT meet your heroes’ situation. Director Angus MacLane, Producer Gayle Sussman, and the team at Pixar were a dream client."
Naturally, my first question to Pixar was “why us?”. Outside of Skywalker Sound, Pixar does not collaborate with outside creatives. Not knowing what to expect, I was astounded by Pixar’s trust and creative generosity, and inspired by their clarity of vision and immaculate attention to detail.
I contributed to this project as Principal / Chief Creative Director, leading a team of talented artists at Perception. Our work was done directly with the filmmakers at Pixar including Director Angus MacLane and Producer Galyn Susman .
