Went into New York City with my grandpa today up to 11 W 53rd street to MoMA. No, not Alltakens momma, the Museum of Modern Art! %|
Until February 6th they have a special exhibit featuring Pixar’s fantastic work. It was really cool. They had everything from origional concept sketches (and let me tell you Buzz Lightyear looked more like a monkey in a fishbowl in early times) to the clay models (which werent actually clay) that are used and scanned into the computer.
More than three floors of great stuff from all their shorts and features, including Cars which is coming out sometime this year, I think. They also a few computer terminals setup where movies about the making of were being shown. I didn’t get to sit down at one, but I saw how they were talking about all the complexities of the fur systems from Monsters Inc.
My grandpa, as well as myself, were a little dissapointed that they didnt really talk about the computer aspect of it at all. How they did the modeling, texturing, and animation. But it is an art museum, after all, not a studio tour.
So if you are in the city anytime between now and February 16th, I recommend you go see it.
