Animation & Filmmaking Showcase of Student Work
Woodbury University, Friday, May 5th!

November is here and CTNX is right around the corner.... 

"Science Behind Pixar" is a new exhibit opening Friday at the California Science Center, in downtown LA near USC. It will run for six months - through April 9th 2017.  Jerry Beck reports; "Well worth a visit, especially if you have kids and want to inspire them toward a career in animation. 

It's laid out in eight sections - like a Disneyland where instead of Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, each "land" represents another step in the filmmaking process (Modeling, Lighting, Animation, etc). Beyond the scientific technical stuff, the exhibit does a great job simply explaining animation - including hand drawn and stop-motion. 

It skews towards kids with lots of interactive hands-on how-to activities, but will fascinate adults (with some great behind-the-scenes at Pixar videos, newly created for this exhibit). I noted the Pixar-themed gift shop attached to the exhibit (you knew there had to be one) is displaying and is selling Richard Williams' Animators Survival Kit (perhaps the only non-Pixar book in the shop). The whole thing is Highly recommended!"
