Something I Love.
Yesterday, I complained. Today, I admire.
A friend of mine shared a link that I couldn’t resist clicking.
Apparently, Pixar is 25 years old. Aside from making me feel old, it made me feel pretty great. Why? Because I’m an advocate. There is something to be said about Pixar. They’ve alway made the most important part stay the most important part. And that’s the story.
The video (below) isn’t all that great. It’s just several clips tied together in a good sequence, that remind us of why the stories are addicting. Even without being great, the content makes it great. Pixar bring us in, they relate, they make us want to be part of it. All while wowing us through subtlety. What I mean is part of my fascination has always been about how great they make it look, without making it look like it.
How do they (continue) to do it? Well, not too long ago another friend posted a link to a behind-the-scenes look at Pixar HQ.
My favorite part? Everyone talks about how fun the environment is. But why? Because they aren’t the kids that you had to stop from having fun – they’re the kids that you had to stop from doing their homework all night long.
In short, Pixar may be 25, but it makes me feel like a kid again.
And for that, I’m glad.
