To Infinity And Beyond: The Story of Pixar Animation Studios

On Thursday and Friday I’ll be posting a two-part series with tips for beginning freelancers on how to bid out a project. Keep an eye out.

Now, on to today’s post….


A new book has just been released: To Infinity and Beyond!: The Story of Pixar Animation Studios. It’s a deluxe 320-page book laying out the definitive history of Pixar, the studio that gave us such blockbusters as Toy Story 1 & 2, A Bug’s Life, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars, and Ratatouille. To date Pixar has yet to deliver a box office flop, a feat which few (if any) Hollywood studios have ever been able to achieve.

From the publisher:

In 1986, gifted animator John Lasseter, technology guru Ed Catmull, and visionary Steve Jobs founded Pixar Animation Studios. Their goal: create a computer animated feature, despite predictions that it could never be done. An unprecedented catalog of blockbuster films later, the studio is honoring its history in this deluxe volume. From its fledgling days under George Lucas to ten demanding years creating Toy Story to the merger with Disney, each milestone is vibrantly detailed. Interviews with Pixar directors, producers, animators, voice talent, and industry insiders, as well as concept art, storyboards, and snapshots illuminate a history that is both definitive and enthralling.
