Trivia

This was made in the days before Pixar existed in its own right when John Lasseter and his crew were working for Lucasfilm. Despite their successes there, the animation department was in line to be axed, so they put together a business plan. It was sufficiently well thought through to attract Steve Jobs of Apple who bought Pixar for $5 million cash and $5 million in bankroll funding. See more »

Goofs

[This goof only happened in its original SIGGRAPH release] Throughout most of the film, the characters were incomplete and made of pencil test line drawings over the completed backgrounds. This was corrected when re-released. See more »

Before Pixar...
16 August 2008 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

From 1984, this short film was the first work that John Lasseter, Eben Ostby and Bill Reeves made as a team but it was made when they still were part of Lucasfilm. Basically is just the beginning of all so everything is quite limited. With only one and half minute this short film can't be more than just the very important and fantastic beginning of something. Is great to hear the commentary of the Blu-ray and now is fun to hear the fact that Lasseter and pals could only made geometric designs with their program. Still the could create two nice characters that are the protagonist of a "one joke" story and with that they could not only show a project that was new in matters of technology but at the same time they could put to it soul, they made that their colleagues didn't care about the fact that when the short was showed, in a very known event by them, was not even finished. It was something new, something different.

This is the kind of stuff that if -TODAY- you are going to show to your girlfriend, for example, and she doesn't really know about it you really have to explain her everything behind it, make sure that she will not judge it just for how the animation looks or how funny was the story, make sure that she appreciate everything behind because and after all it is just a must-see important piece of work and for me it was absolutely great to finally watch it.
