In 2005, the Computer History Museum held a discussion on CGI titled, "A Human Story of Computer Animation." Speakers included notable Pixar luminaries Brad Bird, Andrew Stanton, Ed Catmull, and Alvy Ray Smith. They were also joined by moderator Michael Rubin, author of the book, "Droidmaker: Geoge Lucas and the Digital Revolution."
This panel discussion runs 1:44:06. It's very long, but I hope you'll be able to find the time to watch and discuss. I wanted to share something memorable in honor of Pixar's 25th birthday, and I can't think of anything better than this. Feel free to share your own insights and observations. I'll be throwing up a few more posts related to pioneering computer animation today and tomorrow (as time permits).
