Votd: ‘25 Years of Pixar’

Votd: ‘25 Years of Pixar’
[1] We've featured a handful of director [2] montages [3] here on /Film recently, and while this "25 Years of Pixar" compilation isn't quite that, it's actually pretty similar. In terms of look, tone, and quality, I'd say Pixar is as consistent as many directors. For the video, NkMcDonalds pulled scenes from works spanning over decades -- from '80s shorts to this year's Cars 2. If you like Pixar as much as I do, it'll definitely make you smile and it might even make you tear up a little tiny bit. Watch it after the jump. [via Go Into the Story [4]] Watching all the Pixar films spliced together like this, it's very easy to see how the studio has evolved over the years from a technical standpoint. Clips from films like A Bug's Life, which looked sophisticated at the time, now look clunky next to the sleeker visuals of newer movies like Wall-e and Up. But it also becomes

Day & Night, A Strong Possibility For Oscar

This weekend when you see Toy Story 3 --it's safe to assume you'll be there? -- you'll first see a new Pixar short called Day & Night (2010). Don't be surprised if it wins an Oscar on February 27th, 2011. I don't want to spoil one second of the short because it's so inventive, fun and technically /conceptually strong. It's often all of those things simultaneously. You're in for a treat.

Despite Pixar's reputation as an Oscar hog, they're more Streep than Hepburn; They're nominated frequently but they win less than people have imagined.

Unless you're talking about animated features in which case, yes, yes, they win that a lot. They've won it 5 out of its 9 years. But they also lose ridiculous contests like Monsters, Inc vs. Shrek... despite the math being Monsters, Inc > Shrek by 1000 to 1. Argh. That one will haunt me forever.

Enjoy An Up Short Online

Enjoy An Up Short Online
Feeling drab and dreary this morning? Well, sigh no more ladies and gentlemen: here's a roughly animated but totally delightful Pixar short for ya, called George & Aj and spinning off the two retirement home attendants left behind when Carl and his house take off.This is a short in the tradition of Jack-Jack Attack, Burn-e or Mike's New Car, playing as it does with characters already established in the film. It features the defiantly lo-fi animation of a Your Friend The Rat as well, so don't go expecting CGI slickness here. It was written and directed by Pixar's Josh CooleyUp is out on DVD on Region 1 already, and in the UK not soon enough.
