Everyone starts somewhere.
John Lasseter, whose birthday is this week, made this short in 1984, when we worked at The Graphics Group, which was part of Lucasfilm. It’s a groundbreaking – and very fun – computer animated short. The Graphics Group became Pixar, and Lasseter became its chief creative officer, directing and executive producing an unparalleled string of joyous, standard-setting animated films along the way.
Here’s where it all began. Happy birthday week, John!
