It’s easy to take an animated film for granted. But there are tens if not hundreds of people behind the scenes spending years of their lives making these pieces of cinematic magic. On one level it seems so very childlike – it’s just a cartoon right? But in reality it involves a slew of very sophisticated, high tech and complicated elements to make simple things – like a red-headed girl shooting an arrow – happen beautifully, gracefully and seamlessly. Pixar’s upcoming epic Brave is an example of this effortlessness that in fact takes an awe inspiring amount of planning, talent and technology to make happen.
Part of the charm of animation – especially for children – is the escapism and fantasy of the story and Pixar is the best in the biz. But for those those grown ups who want to peek behind the curtain, those who want to get a glimpse of what is involved in making a classic – come with me and see how a Pixar movie is made:
Brave opens nationwide on June 22nd. You can read more about the upcoming Pixar film right here.
