Pixar: 30 Years of Animation
This spring, DDP is back with new exhibitions, and “PIXAR: 30 YEARS OF ANIMATION” is one of them. Running from April 15 to August 8 at the Design Exhibition Hall of DDP, this special exhibition in Seoul will cover all the major works of Pixar from the earliest ones to the latest, with 450 items including initial drawings that cannot be seen outside the studio. Hand-drawn sketches, paintings and maquettes of major films such as “Toy Story”, “Inside Out”, “Finding Nemo”, and ”Finding Dory,” as well as from early short films will also be on display.
John Lasseter is the main animator and a film director as well as a screenwriter and producer of Pixar. He might be more famous for directing “Toy Story” and “A Bug’s Life.” “Toy Story” was the first digital animation made completely by computer. Lasseter said “The art challenges the technology, and technology inspires the art.” This one sentence explains all the history and the creative world of Pixar’s work, an interaction between art, science and technology. By following the film-making process step by step, you can explore each work more deeply. Through hand-made works of art such as paintings, storyboards and character models made by the artists of Pixar in traditional ways, you can see their producing techniques.
