    John Lasseter to be honored at Sonoma Film Festival

    Check out the full story at www.theblueparrot.info

    By Leo Holzer --

    In the past dozen or so years, Pixar films have entertained millions the world over. From Woody and Buzz Lightyear in 1995’s landmark “Toy Story,” to Lightning McQueen and Mater in 2006’s hit “Cars,” no other studio in history has amassed Pixar’s unbroken string of hits.

    What’s the secret of Pixar’s success?

    It’s not the groundbreaking technology. It’s simply good storytelling, according to John Lasseter, the vice president and creative force behind Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville.

    It’s that storytelling savvy the Sonoma Valley Film Festival is honoring Saturday in a special tribute to Lasseter, who has been a longtime friend and supporter of the festival which is marking its 10th anniversary through Sunday.

    The more coverage the better!

    John and others from Pixar will also be at the San Francisco Film Festival on April 29th for showing of another documentary, "Fog City Mavericks".

    Fog City Mavericks - Spotlight Cinema by the Bay
    7:30 pm, Apr 29 at the Castro Theatre

    Fog City Mavericks explores and applauds the extraordinary cinematic achievements of San Francisco Bay Area filmmakers, with notable attention to the way in which their lives and work mirror the spirit of invention and independence that makes the Bay Area such a unique cultural and artistic community. A few of the awe-inspiring iconoclastic filmmakers featured in the documentary include Brad Bird, Bruce Conner, Carroll Ballard, Chris Columbus, Clint Eastwood, Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, John Korty, John Lasseter, Phil Kaufman, Walter Murch, Sofia Coppola and Saul Zaentz. George Lucas and other special guests will be on stage for the introduction of the film and to take part in a Q&A following.

    Good for him. No matter what my feelings towards Cars may be, I have a lot of respect for John Lasseter, and in my opinion, he deserves a tribute.
