    Talking Re: Oogie goes to Pixar

    Major snaps for Oogie on this AMAZING report. Sort of makes you want to work for Pixar doesn't it?

    I'll bet there are more than a few folks in Burbank who would love to switch places with their Pixar counterparts

    Re: Oogie goes to Pixar

    Oogie - just to echo the sentiment through this thread...what a fabulous report.

    One might only hope that Disney might now take a few cues as to how to treat it's "other" employees.

    Re: Oogie goes to Pixar

    Thanks for the insight in your visit to "PIXARland"! So neat
    to see just a little of what has made PIXAR into a Powerhouse!
    So fun to catch a glimpse of the creativity that is encouraged.
    Wow! and to see ALL the Pixar shorts, including a couple new ones!
    The shorts that I've seen are just as brilliant, if not, moreso than
    the features they have produced!

    I'm so glad that Lassetter is involve in Disney Animation and
    Imagineering ~ hopefully he is encouraging the same kind of
    creativity at Disney, since the "Eisner Sanction" ran animation
    and Imagineering aground and shipwrecked it.

    Re: Oogie goes to Pixar

    Oogie...I'm insanely jealous. I drove through that area last year and was craning my neck hoping I would see something from the freeway, but no luck. This looks like such an amazing place to work. It seems to capture the same spirit I saw when I visited Cal Arts back in the 1980's, and the Disney Studio before they shipped all the animators out to Glendale. In fact...it looks like Disney Animation as it should have been. I'm bummed that they only do this once a year, but impressed that the proceeds go to the Emeryville School District. Is there a web link with info for next year, or is it just a local Emeryville thing?

    Re: Oogie goes to Pixar

    It's not just a Emeryville thing. Anyone can come to it providing they have bought a ticket. The link for the site is

    http://www.emeryed.org/tix.php

    They did it last year in late September. Since I went this year, I will be notified when tickets go on sale next year and I'll pass on the info here.

    Definately let us know! I really wanna go next year.

    I used to work across the street from Pixar. They have the nicest block in Emeryville. By far.
