You may remember back in March, along with a group of other awesome bloggers and YouTubers from around the world, I got to visit Pixar, see a very early screening of Toy Story 3 and the short that sits before it, Day and Night and meet the creators of the phenomenal movie that is released in UK cinemas this Monday, 19th July. It’s been a long time coming but I can now finally show you the interviews and footage that I collected while I was there. Over the next few days, I’ll be posting videos from the archives with Christine Freeman (view here) and interviews with Stereoscopic Supervisor , Bob Whitehill (view here), Production Designer, Bob Pauley (view here), and the Director and Producer of Toy Story 3, Lee Unkrich and Darla K. Anderson.
Today I have the interview that I took with Lead Animators, Bobby Podesta and Mike Venturini. Bobby had previously worked on Toy Story 2 so already had familiarity with the characters but Mike came on fresh and had to learn how the physics of the characters would work but you can tell for their enthusiasm, they love what they’ve created and so they should!
Please note, some possible spoilers are shown during the footage.
